It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Yep, that’s right. It’s Cyber Monday! To help you make the most of the day, we’ve rounded up ten of the best travel deals on offer, from USA city breaks, to ski holidays, to cruises. Happy bargain hunting!
1. Summer in Sicily
Leading Italian specialist Citalia is giving holidaymakers the chance to save £50 on holidays of seven nights or more if they’re booked by midnight on Monday 30 November. A week in Sicily next July costs £759pp and includes easyJet flights from Gatwick, private resort transfers, and seven nights’ B&B accommodation at the four-star Hotel Excelsior Palace in Taormina.
2. Boston break
If all this talk of bargains has made you long for the January sales, Hayes and Jarvis has a three-night city break to Boston for £499pp, including United Airlines flights from Heathrow departing on 23 January, plus room-only accommodation at the five-star Omni Parker House. In Massachusetts, there’s no sales tax on clothing costing less than $175, which means you can shop til you drop.
3. Hit the slopes
This weekend is a great time to find a cheap ski deal. Club Med has a week in Avoriaz for £869pp. The all-inclusive holiday includes flights from Gatwick departing on 10 April. Purpose-built Avoriaz is a high resort, so it’s a good choice for skiers who want to go late in the season.
