BOSTON, MA - November 11, 2021 - Today, travel booking app Hopper announced that Travel Deal Tuesday (www.TravelDealTuesday.com), is returning on November 30th for the fifth year in a row, with historically low prices on flights, hotels and rental cars and exclusive discounts on popular destinations.
As more Americans are vaccinated, they’re ready to take those bucket-list vacations they’ve missed out on since the start of the pandemic. As we look ahead to 2022, we are expecting a record year for travel. In fact, international flight searches for 2022 are growing 54% quicker compared to the same time last year.
Travel Deal Tuesday is the biggest day for travel deals in the post-Thanksgiving shopping period including major discounts on flights, hotels and car rentals; making it the best day for travelers to book those future trips.
Hopper collects 25 to 30 billion flight and hotel price quotes every day and has built a huge historical archive of trillions of prices from over the past several years. The company analyzed its historical pricing data and found that the Tuesday following Thanksgiving has consistently offered the most significant volume of deals that week.

Hopper sends nearly 3 million buy notifications on Travel Deal Tuesday, detecting an average of 34 deals per second on this travel holiday – that’s 30% more than the average day!

On top of already discounted prices from airlines, hotels, and car rental companies, travelers can expect to earn even more savings on the Hopper app this Travel Deal Tuesday.
