Best Travel Deal Tuesday offers 2021: Aer Lingus, Etihad and more

After a rush of travel deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the travel industry is now turning its eyes to Travel Deal Tuesday. A relative newcomer to the Cyber Week deal season, Travel Deal Tuesday could be the perfect opportunity to snag a cheap flight for your future vacation.

With travel rebounding — especially following a massive Thanksgiving holiday travel period — the industry is looking to capitalize on the pent-up demand. As the world begins to open back up, now may be the time to start planning your next vacation for 2022 or beyond. (Be sure to note, however, that restrictions surrounding Covid-19 are constantly changing. We recommend buying flights with flexible booking options in case your plans change.)

According to travel-booking company Hopper, which predicts flight price trends and more, Travel Deal Tuesday is expected to see more than double the deals of Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.

Here’s a look at some of the sales and offers we’re seeing for Travel Deal Tuesday, noting that some of the deals are an extension of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Keep in mind that some of the Travel Deal Tuesday flight deals are exclusive to Hopper, meaning you’ll need to book through the online travel agent in order to take advantage of the sales.


According to Hopper, Irish carrier Aer Lingus is offering up to $200 off economy fares and up to $300 off business-class fares from the US to destinations in Europe, including Dublin, London, Paris, Barcelona and Rome.

Alaska’s Cyber Monday sale is still ongoing. With it, you can get one-way fares from just $29 through Nov. 30. There are also no change fees on main cabin and first class fares.

Air New Zealand

The flag carrier of New Zealand will be offering discounts on flights to neighboring Australia, as the Kiwi border remains closed. You can find discounted fares to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. To get these fares, you’ll want to book through Hopper. However, Air New Zealand is also advertising round-trip fares to New Zealand from $998 as part of its still-active Cyber Monday sale.

Delta’s Season of Adventure Deals are still going on and run through Nov. 30. With them, you can take advantage of three distinct deals, depending on where you want to travel.
