While Black Friday and Cyber Monday both bring a slew of travel deals each year, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving is often the best day to score cheap flights to the greatest variety of destinations, according to fare prediction app Hopper.
Travel Deal Tuesday brings a range of flight deals offered directly by airlines and by booking platforms, with some of the top deals including up to half off round-trip flights.
Travelers will find a range of domestic deals and plenty of discounts to international locales. Many of the top deals we spotted on the Hopper app were to some of Asia's most popular destinations.
