If you're looking to book a cheap vacation from Canada, it turns out that holding off on purchasing flights during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales actually helps you score a better deal.

According to online travel marketplace Hopper, the best day to find the cheapest prices and biggest discounts on flights isn't November 24 or 27 — it's actually Travel Deal Tuesday.

November 28, known as Travel Deal Tuesday, is historically the best time to score major deals on flights, hotels, homes and rental cars.

In fact, according to Hopper, last year, Travel Deal Tuesday saw nearly 78% more deals than on Cyber Monday and twice more than on Black Friday.

Last year, the marketplace says over 3,000 more routes from U.S. airports were on sale on Travel Deal Tuesday compared to Black Friday or Cyber Monday, and travellers were able to score deals of over 60% off trips to Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, London, Lisbon & more.

While the exact details of 2023's discounts have not yet been shared, according to Hopper, travellers will want to hold off on purchasing flights or hotels over the November shopping weekend and wait for Travel Deal Tuesday 2023 instead.

Hopper is forecasting great travel deals this year, with discounts of up to 80% off trips to Hawaii, Orlando, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and more deals to places like the Bahamas, Bali, London and Paris.
