Expedia.com.my today officially announced the beginning of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. The countdown for bargain-hunters who look forward to the two biggest shopping sales of the year is over. This year Expedia offers almost five times the amount of deals compared with last year. So, November is definitely the time to get the dream trip on a budget.
As a company whose mission is to help people go places, Brand Expedia understands that the modern Malaysian traveler seeks convenience, flexibility and value for money when booking their travel plans. In fact, according to an August 2018 study conducted by Brand Expedia Malaysia, 52 percent of Malaysians surveyed said they would spend more than five hours per month researching for a week-long holiday, taking precedence over other career (34 percent) and health related (31 percent) research. With the highly anticipated Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, Malaysian travelers can unlock great deals on selected hotel bookings or bundle their holiday savings with flight and hotel package deals.
|Hotels||Flight + Hotel Package Deals|
From 23 November (0900hrs) to 26 November (2359hrs), get up to 8% off selected hotels*.
To sweeten the deal, you can also receive one 50% off coupon on selected hotels* on 23 November (0900 hrs to 2359 hrs) ONLY! Grab it fast, as these are based on limited availability on a first-come, first-served basis!
And if you don’t manage to get your hands on the 50% off coupon on Black Friday, don’t fret as Expedia will still be offering 30% off on selected hotels* on Cyber Monday, 26 November (0900 hrs to 2359 hrs)!
Receive RM2000 off selected package deals* with a minimum spend of RM4000 on 23 November (0900 hrs to 2359 hrs) ONLY.
And if you miss this, hang tight till Cyber Monday on 26 November, where you can receive up to RM400 off selected package deals with a minimum spend of RM4000 from 0900 hrs to 2359hrs!
Brand Expedia’s Lavinia Rajaram, Regional Head of Communications to share the best tips to maximize your savings this holiday season, encourages customers to take opportunity of the deals and suggests, “Plan ahead. Coupons are first-come, first-served, limited quantity and will start at 9.00 a.m. so be sure to choose the hotels and packages and put them on your Expedia “My List” in advance. While many people like to use our deals to take those last-minute trips, January and February are among the cheapest times to travel all year long. Download the Expedia app and shop as an Expedia Rewards member (joining is free) and unlock access to the “members only” experience and get double Expedia Rewards on all app bookings. If you don’t make it to the Black Friday sale, you can still be on time to Cyber Monday on 26 November (also starting at 9.00 A.M. local time).”
Here’s a quick lowdown on how you can gear up to get the best travel deals.
KNOW WHEN THE TRAVEL DATES ARE
Travel dates for the deals available at Expedia.com.my’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are from 23 November 2018 to 31 March 2019. We recommend locking in holidays dates during the period with your manager and travel companion ahead of the sale, that way you can book the trip right away.
PLAN WHERE YOU WANT TO GO
Fastest fingers first! As coupons are available on a first-come, first-served basis and limited in quantity, start thinking about where you want to go, and get a head start on shortlisting your preferred flights, hotels or packages on your Expedia “My List” ahead of the sale. As not all hotels/flights are included in this sale, we recommend choosing a handful of options, so you can grab your deals quickly before they are gone!
TAKE THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED
Consider looking at alternative neighbourhoods when searching for hotels in popular cities. Hotels in business districts in cities such as London, Tokyo or Paris often offer fantastic prices over the weekends. And while you’re saving more, you also get to discover more than the usual popular tourist areas.
GO MOBILE FOR EVEN MORE DEALS
Download the Expedia app and shop as an Expedia Rewards member (membership is free) if you haven’t already done so. You can unlock access to the “members only” experience and get double the Expedia Rewards points on all mobile app bookings! What’s more, the extra 50% off hotel coupon is also redeemable on the mobile app – which means you will get more bang for your buck!
BUNDLE UP FOR MORE SAVINGS
And if the great offers are not enough, you can still get access to great rates by either booking a package or by using Expedia Add-On which allows you to unlock discounts of up to 58% for your hotel after booking either a flight or package. Strategy-wise, it’s clear – book your flights first before tackling accommodation to save! Log on to www.expedia.com.my/addonadvantage for more details.
With so many great deals, you’ll definitely be able to go on your dream holiday at amazing prices – so start preparing right away and be ready when the clock turns 9am on 23 November 2018. Happy shopping!
