This sale has ended. But you can still find ridiculously cheap hotels (and last minute deals) at Hotels.com
From my seat here in Australia, Black Friday sales have not typically mattered to me.
As my friend Vanessa Chaisson wrote: “I reject the manipulation of capitalism and societal pressure which leads to environmental destruction, communities ravaged by debt, and non-ironic acid washed jeans.
I am a minimalist committed to supporting local businesses and the betterment of my community. I have been blessed with abundance this year and I need nothing more.”
But when I heard about Hotels.com offering 50% off hotels for Black Friday this was also me:
“Holy s&%t. Black Friday sales also apply to TRAVEL?????!!!”
Hotels.com #BlackFridaySale 2018

If you’re a die-hard traveler it’s highly likely that you’re already planning 10 trips by now. So instead of a shopping spree this Black Friday, why not go on a hotel booking spree before this deal runs out!

The Fine Print
I know reading the fine print is less exciting as the actual sale, so I’ve read and summarized it for you!
50% off hotels is available for travel between now (21 November 2018) and the 31st of March 2019. You have to book on the Australian version of Hotels.com by November 27; the sale ends at 23:59 AEST.
Major chains like Hyatt and Marriott are excluded from the sale (you can find a full list of non-participating hotels here), but there are plenty of incredible properties who are taking part.
For instance, heading to Paris? The 4 star Hôtel Auteuil Tour Eiffel is 40% off. Heading to Kyoto? The Grand Prince Hotel Kyoto is 55% off!
If you don’t see me posting over the next 4 days it’s because I’m obsessively scrolling through these deals like a mad woman possessed to book in my trips for 2019!
Hotels.com is one of the biggest and most mainstream booking engines for hotel accommodation worldwide, with one of the widest selections of accommodation online.
You’ll find both independent and major chain hotels as in over hundreds of thousands properties worldwide. They offer a one-stop shop for hotel pricing, amenities and availability and specialise in providing accommodation during sold-out periods.

Though Hotels.com is unique in that they offer price matching; if you find a cheaper, publicly available rate for a hotel or vacation rental within 24 hours of booking, including one listed on Hotels.com, they will refund you the price difference.
If You Miss This Sale …
If you do miss out on this sale, Hotels.com run sales and last minute deals pretty consistently throughout the year. Not often on this scale, which is why you should take advantage of the 50% off, but they do offer discounts over other sites quite regularly.
Because they specialize in last minute deals, you’ll find the best year round discounts if you’re booking within a couple of days of your stay. So, whether you’re looking for value in Vegas, treehouses in Thailand or villas in Venezuela, it’s all just a click away.
And with their “Reward-winning” loyalty program you earn free nights while you sleep and get access to instant savings like Secret Prices.
