Black Friday, once the unique American shopping experience has in recent years become a global phenomenon. With online shopping, crazy electronic and clothes clearances it is the beginning of the big lead up to the Christmas shop. Even travel companies are in on the act with Black Friday deals on travel.
I must admit that a few years ago I didn’t even know what Black Friday was. I was well aware of Thanksgiving, a very American tradition and very noble in being religion, race and gender free. However the holiday period for the US based population becomes a frenzy for many who queue for hours on end just to save a few dollars on an electronic item which becomes obsolete a few months later. Crazy if you ask me yet I’m not a brand freak.
The Black Friday fever has rapidly spread.
With the maturity of the internet today all sorts of companies have Black Friday deals. In fact in recent weeks my inbox has been flooded with e-mails from various brands asking me to promote their Black Friday deals on travel and a whole lot more.
As a way of giving thanks to my readers for all the support you’ve shown me over the last couple of years I thought it best to share them with you. I can’t show them all, there are just too many so you’ll find below a selection of some of the best deals on travel and things which may interest you.
Don’t forget, this is not a one time thing. Please keep coming back in future and check my Travel Deals page for updates on special offers.

The Best VPN in town
I talked about this only a couple of weeks ago about how all travellers need to protect themselves whilst online. If you are in a coffee shop, hotel or airport you are using a public wifi network and run the risk of being hacked. Nobody wants to lose their bank or e-mail details to someone up to no good. The best way to protect yourself is to use a service called a VPN (Virtual Private Network) which protects your identity online. I’ve been using Hide My Ass for a while and am very happy with the results. You can find out more by clicking here.
