Many sites are just as excited about the sales as we are and can't wait to start the deals. These sites have already launched Boxing Day hotel sales for 2020:

  • Wotif: Up to 40% off stays.
  • HotelsCombined: Up to 40% off select Queensland hotels.
  • Oaks: Up to 30% off hotels plus the option to book now and pay later. You'll also get free cancellations and complimentary Wi-Fi.

  • Trip.com: Up to 50% off hotels worldwide

Which sites often have Boxing Day sales?

Hotel brands and booking sites love getting in on the Boxing Day sale action. For an idea of what to expect, these are some past highlights:

  • Hotels.com: Up to 60% off stays with a bonus 9% with code
  • Wotif: Up to 70% off hotels worldwide
  • Expedia: Up to 30% off plus a bonus 10% off with a code
  • Agoda: Up to 75% off hotels worldwide, plus an additional 5% with code
  • Groupon: Up to 70% off hotel stays and vacation packages
  • Radisson Blu: Up to 15% off

How do I find the best Boxing Day hotel deals?

  • Stay a little longer. Many hotel sales offer greater savings the longer you stay. While a one- or two-night stay may offer savings of around 25%, adding a third night may increase that discount to 35%.
  • Be flexible. The most heavily discounted days are often those that are the quietest, for example, weekdays or dates outside of the school holidays.
  • Go where the sales are. Don't have a specific destination in mind? Check out where the deals are and decide from there. Who knows? You might even stumble across a great new destination.
  • Shop around. Be sure to check the rates on multiple booking sites like Expedia, Wotif, Hotels.com and Booking.com as they all may offer slightly different prices, even during a big sales event.
  • Check your rewards terms and conditions. If you're loyal to a brand because it offers you rewards points, check the terms and conditions before booking with them. Often, big sales exclude you from earning points or offer fewer points for your stay. This may not be as appealing as a cheaper stay with no rewards.
