First and foremost, what is Black Friday? Inherited from our friends in the USA Black Friday was once one-day of deals involving major retailers offering discounts on TVs, fashion right through to city breaks, holidays and everything inbetween. Following the carnage of 2014 (who can forget the scenes of fights over TVs in a popular Supermarket Chain) many retailers moved towards online sales for 2015.
For 2016 the bar has raised again with offers becoming available during the week leading up to Black Friday (not forgetting Cyber Monday which follows). As a result Skyparksecure have put together a guide to all the latest Travel deals available or coming soon!
We’ll do our best to keep this up to date as the week continues so you can grab a travel bargain (just think of us when you need to purchase your airport parking!).
