We’ve already talked about Cyber Monday hotel deals, and in this post, we’ll cover sales from general travel websites and tour providers.

Whether you’re interested in a discounted flight or all-inclusive volunteer vacation, you may find a travel deal that fits your fancy.

12 Cyber Monday Travel Deals

Got wanderlust? Here are some travel deals you might like.

1. Cheap Caribbean

Dreaming of fun in the sun? Cheap Caribbean has some scorching deals on its trips, which include airfare, hotel and sometimes food.  

A three-night getaway from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to the Gran Melia in Puerto Rico, for example, is on sale for $199. That price includes your airfare, hotel, a free fruit basket and 20% off food and beverages.

Or, you can use promo code CYBER150 to get $150 off any stay of five nights or more.

2. CheapTickets

Want to save on hotel stays or event tickets? Check CheapTickets’ Cyber Monday sale.
