GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Welcome to the biggest day of travel deals we'll see until mid-winter!
If you're planning a getaway for next month, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or beyond, there is a bargain for you today. Below you'll find a massive roundup of the best travel deals on the planet. I've had bargain experts, travel agents and hotel/cruise experts weigh in.
Every company below has been tested and put through the Ways 2 Save ringer.
In terms of flights, I'd book Thanksgiving travel now. I find fares their best Tuesday mornings and in this case, three months in advance seems to bring the best deal. If you can fly back from Thanksgiving on a Saturday versus Sunday, you'll save even more.
I also highly recommend signing up for a free account with Yapta (www.yapta.com). This is my ultimate favorite free travel website that will get you refund if a flight price drops after you buy from most major participating airlines. You don't even need to purchases your ticket through Yapta and the free service will also monitor hotel rates, notifying you when they drop.
