With Black Friday just a few days away, many British tourists will be poised to snap up this year’s best deals.
However, with the sale often stretching into the week before and after, is Friday actually the best day to shop for flights?
The expert team at Jack’s Flight Club have found that the Wednesday following Black Friday could be the best day to grab a deal.
According to the team’s data, the Wednesday following Black Friday was one of the most popular days to shop for flights last year.
The top day was so-called Travel Tuesday, which is the day after Cyber Monday, following Black Friday.
Katy Maclure, editor of The Detour, part of Jack’s Flight Club, said: “Travel Tuesday has long been celebrated as the ideal day for booking holiday getaways, but our recent findings suggest the Wednesday following Travel Tuesday may be the next best day to search for travel deals.
“We encourage travellers to keep an eye on this emerging trend to make the most of their travel planning, however staying vigilant throughout the whole Black Friday/Cyber Monday period is key.
“From our findings, we see a surge of people looking for flights from the Thursday before Black Friday through to the following Wednesday.”
While Wednesday could be the day to snap up a sneaky last-minute deal, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the sales throughout the whole period.
Some holiday providers have already kicked off their Black Friday sales, including Lastminute.com and loveholidays.
If a deal seems like a great bargain and it’s a price people are happy to pay, it can be a good idea to snap it up.
Many of the deals are subject to availability so the cheapest offers could be gone before Black Friday.
If there’s a holiday people have their eye on, it’s a great idea to sign up for price alerts on a flight comparison website to track prices.
