Is there no end to the Black-Friday/Cyber Monday shopping madness?
Apparently not, at least not this year. Online travel retail companies, same-day travel apps, hotels, tour outfitters, cruise lines and airlines all are having sales after Thanksgiving.
With that in mind, here are some sales that could make planning your next vacation easy. Have a look and happy bargain hunting!
