Cyber Monday Flight Deals: How to Save Big on Your Next Getaway

Check out these deals to save a few for your next big trip.

Cyber Monday sales hit a record high in 2016 with consumers spending a whopping $3.4 billion in online purchases last year. This year’s Cyber Monday winners are predicted to be online retailers like Amazon and online travel sites.

“Regardless of the holiday or not, the best way to book cheap flights is to constantly monitor the prices,” said Anna Wu, founder of Flight Deals Hound. “Monday is generally a good time to book flights as pricing is typically a bit more expensive on the weekend. And if you wish to book a getaway after New Year’s, late November is a good time to purchase the fare.”

Whether you’re looking to hit the beach, explore a city or get back to nature, check out the best deals Cyber Monday has to offer to make your time finding flight deals easier this holiday season.
