Here’s What You Can Expect This Travel Deal Tuesday
By Mitti Hicks
Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us, there’s still one more day you can look forward to that will help you save money on traveling next year.
As Travel Noire previously reported, Travel Deal Tuesday, which falls on Nov. 27, is one of the best days to save on airfare for 2019.
This is based on data from Hopper, the Montreal-based company that alerts consumers on the best time to buy plane tickets via its app. Last year alone, Hopper analysts said they saw a surge in fare sale activity, which resulted in the company sending 43 percent more deal notifications than average.
More than 1.1 million deal notifications from Hopper were sent to users on Travel Deal Tuesday in 2017.
“Hopper collects 10 to 15 billion airfare price quotes every day and has built a huge historical archive of trillions of prices from over the past several years,” Patrick Surry, chief data scientist for Hopper, said. “The company analyzed its historical flight pricing data and found that the Tuesday following Thanksgiving has consistently offered the most significant volume of fare sales that week..”
So here’s what you can expect this year, according to Hopper data:
Hawaiian Airlines will be offering promotional fares on non-stop flights to Australia, South Korea, New Zealand, and Japan, with one-way fares from Honolulu to Sapporo Japan starting from $299 per person.
Cathay Pacific will be offering promotional fares from the US, including new gateways Seattle and DC, to destinations in Asia such as Hong Kong, Beijing, and Shanghai as well as destinations in Australia and New Zealand.
Icelandair will be offering promotional fares to Reykjavík–Keflavík Airport.
