Save up to 40 percent.

We’ve survived (and thrived through) Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but today, there’s an extra-special deal to get in on. Travel Deal Tuesday is the best time of the year to buy flight deals, whether you’re looking to book an ultra-affordable domestic trip or you’re finally committed to taking the vacation of your dreams.
Last year, on the day following Cyber Monday, the travel-booking app Hopper sent 43 percent more deal notifications than it would on an average day, resulting in a total of over 1.1 million notifications. This year, that number is only expected to rise, as over 20% of international and domestic flights will have discounts.
It’s (unfortunately) pretty common that flight deals can amount to a paltry discount or may only apply to less-visited locales, but today that won’t be the case: According to Hopper, major destinations like Paris, Hong Kong, Sydney, and Rio de Janeiro are expected to be discounted up to 40 percent. That’s some saving we can get behind.
To take part in Travel Deal Tuesday, all you have to do is check your favorite airline’s site or search a route you might already have in mind. If you’re flexible, you can browse deals right from Hopper’s search screen. Who knows? You could just end up booking the trip of a lifetime.
