Black Friday and Cyber Monday: the shopper's absolute favorite days of the year. This blur of price drops, promos, and unbelievable sales is a phenomenon that is often characterized by hordes of people lining up outside different stores at the crack of dawn.

While most shoppers generally look into sales for toys, clothes, and electronics, avid travellers would know that this is also one of the best times to prepare for trips.

Over the past couple of years, members of the travel industry have also joined in on the Black Friday/Cyber Monday trend. Though these days definitely won't be the best times to actually travel, ticket prices for other travel dates definitely see a significant price drop.

In 2016, several airlines and accommodations have already announced their plans for their big holiday blowouts. The Independent UK suggests that Cyber Monday is the best time to look for travel discounts including hotel price cuts and cheap international and domestic flights.

The same source has explained that several big airlines including British Airways, Qatar Airways and Air New Zealand have all been known to offer the best Black Friday deals. Furthermore, Norwegian Air has been known to offer discounts of up to thirty per cent off all their flights. Booking websites such as Expedia have also been known to follow the ticket sale trend.

Deal News also explains that Virgin Airlines often offers discounts on these days, featuring domestic flights that start at $35 one-way and international flights starting at $495 roundtrip.

Carriers such as Spirit Airlines may even offer Black Friday/Cyber Monday coupons that cut off up to ninety-nine per cent of the base flight rate, leaving only the travel taxes to be paid. To find the best deals you should see comparisons here.

However, bear in mind that all ticket sales and discounts all depend on the availability of seats. It's also worth noting that most discounted flights will be mid-week flights around the last week of November to the first two weeks of December, since these are off seasons.

A great tip when finding the best black Friday flight deals is to maximize savings by doing adequate research and to know how much you should be willing to pay. Another great tip is to use the official mobile apps of booking websites and airlines since they may include added discounts and freebies.

Black Friday 2016 is set to begin on November 25. Cyber Monday is set to be held on November 28 of the same year. Remember to keep an eye out for the best deals you'll find this year.
