After hours of overindulging on turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, the last thing we want to do is muscle our way through Black Friday shopping crowds, so we're easing into it from our couch. And what’s better motivation for booking a quick getaway than spending a few days locked in with family?
Though the Delta variant has left things uncertain, people are still not slowing down on their revenge traveling. In fact, a study conducted by Amex Trendex revealed that 47 percent of respondents are planning to travel for at least one holiday this season. And, because many people are still able to work from home, they have the flexibility to avoid the busiest travel days and extend their trips if they need to. People are so eager to get away from their WFH nooks and everyday life that a new trend called “trip stacking” has been noted by travel experts. What is trip stacking, exactly? It’s when people book multiple trips over the same period of time so that if one destination falls through due to COVID restrictions, they still have a backup booked and ready to go.
So yeah, you’re going to want to check out our roundup of the best Black Friday travel deals you can expect this year. From glamping to group tours to airline miles, there’s something for everyone.
