Still time to bargain hunt! 14 Cyber Monday travel deals on right now

Jonathan Takiff of the Philadelphia Inquirer provides tips and tricks to know if you’re truly getting a deal on Cyber Monday.

You just might find your next vacation on Cyber Monday. With Black Friday over, this is the day e-commerce takes its turn — and that includes discounts and deals on travel too.

Before you buy, read the fine print on each offer to make sure you understand the full price or any restrictions on the deal. Some offers require payment in full at time of purchase and are nonrefundable; some are based on double occupancy; and some display prices that don’t include taxes and fees.

Also, they’re all based on availability — so when they sell out, the deal is over. That said, here are 14 travel deals that are on right now. Shop wisely!


1. You can fly from Los Angeles or San Francisco to Fiji starting at $789 round-trip, which represents up to 50% off the usual flights. Fiji Airways, which operates daily flights from L.A. to Nadi, makes the offer on Monday only for selected days in December, January and March. Info: Fiji Airways
