AS Brits start to venture further afield for holidays after so long of being stuck indoors, away from our families, Black Friday offers the perfect opportunity to find some bargain hotel deals for that ultimate 2022 getaway.
Whether you’re thinking about a fun staycation in the UK, or a trip further afield to sunnier climates, there will certainly be some great discounts on hotel stays this month that are worth keeping an eye out for.

The UK government recently scrapped remaining restrictions for foreign travel, removing all the remaining red list countries and the need for Brits to complete an expensive 10-day hotel quarantine (it’s best to keep updated on any changes here, though).
Now anyone returning from abroad will not be required to quarantine, as long as they are fully vaccinated, and complete a lateral flow test on arrival – you may have to do a day two lateral flow test when you arrive back in the UK, though (all the latest information can be found here).
So, if a big trip is on the cards, finding some incredible savings on your hotel can make all the difference to the final cost of your holiday.
Below we’ve got the lowdown on where to find the best hotel deals in the Black Friday sales this month.

When is Cyber Monday 2021?
Cyber Monday falls on November 29 this year – the Monday following Black Friday weekend.
As the online-only extension of Black Friday, it’s become a massive discounting event in its own right, and the last date for bargain-hunters to pick up savings ahead of Christmas.
Many of the brands and booking sites we have previously mentioned will run many deals from Black Friday through the weekend to midnight on Cyber Monday.
However, we suggest not waiting for too long if you’ve found a hotel deal you love as they tend to be limited and get booked up fast.
Can I get a student discount or any other discounts on hotels?
If you’re wondering if you can get a student discount on hotels, we suggest checking the individual websites of the retails you want to stay with.
In this way, you’ll get the most accurate information about any promotions.
