Black Friday Sales & Deals on Boston Travel - 2020
Save BIG on Tours, Flights, Hotels, & More
Planning a trip to Boston?
Take a look at the Black Friday deals and sales on offer for Boston travel, and scoop up savings of up to 25% or more through Thanksgiving weekend.
Similar special deals days such as Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday follow right after Black Friday and may give you more chances to save.
"But.." you may be thinking, "with the Covid-19 pandemic still raging, does scooping up travel deals right now make sense?"
Depending on where you live, travel to Boston (or anywhere else) may not be feasible or wise right at this moment - but with vaccines becoming available soon, there's never been a better time to lock in savings on travel while hotel rates and plane fares are still phenomenally low.
Here are the 2 most important tips for protecting your Black Friday savings investments:
1. Make sure the travel deals you book are refundable, offer free cancellation, or can be rescheduled. For example, book refundable instead of non-refundable hotel reservations. If you make flight reservations, know what the airline's policies are if you need to change your dates.
2. Plan to travel after vaccines will be available to you (of course, you have to make your best guess about when that will be, so check news reports for current estimates). Booking.com's Black Friday deal gives you until December 31, 2021 to complete your stay - so if you expect to get vaccinated by July, make your reservations for August or later.
Black Friday for 2020 on Friday, November 27. Cyber Monday is on November 30.
Some sales last several days or even a week, and many start well before Thanksgiving this year.

Why You Can Save BIG on Black Friday and Cyber Monday
If you're not from the U.S., you may be wondering: What exactly is Black Friday? Or Cyber Monday? And how does Thanksgiving come into play?
In short, Black Friday is the day after the American Thanksgiving holiday (the 4th Thursday in November) when shoppers traditionally flood into retail stores (or browse online) to start holiday shopping.
To compete for customers, retailers offer big discounts on Black Friday - but many merchants now extend the sales throughout all of the week. Online vendors vie for shoppers with their own large discounts on Cyber Monday, the first day of the following week - but as part of the general grab for customers, online sales start well before Thanksgiving as well.
Bottom line? Over the past couple of decades, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become the most important sales period of the year for savvy shoppers as brands around the world have started offering the discounts.
