Frequently asked questions about Boxing Day vacation sales

I can't wait! Do Boxing Day holiday day deals start nearly?

While deal details are often announced, but don't officially start, until 26 December, some tour and holiday package companies do release offers prior to Boxing Day officially starting. This year, a few of them include:

  • Trafalgar: $200 off 20 different 2021 trips in Europe, the USA, the UK and Canada. On sale until 5 January
  • G Adventures $1 deposit deal on tours that are discounted up to 30%. On sale until 31 January.

How do I find the best Boxing Day holiday deal?

  • Be flexible with your holiday destination. Don't start shopping with a specific destination in mind. If you're open to the idea of a beach holiday rather than a Bali beach trip you're more likely to score a deal.
  • Book a pre-packaged holiday. By booking your flights and hotel with one company such as Wotif or Expedia, you could save a motza compared to booking each part separately. Compare prices and extras first before hitting the book button.
  • Add extras you'd book anyway. Most sites offer further discounts when you add extras such as airport transfers and flights. Check the price of each separately to see what the cost difference is.
  • Consider off-season destinations. It's always cheaper to travel somewhere off-peak. Take advantage of extra savings by combining the Boxing Day discounts with already existing low-season deals. Just bear in mind that off-season may mean less than desirable weather which may tip your scales on when to travel. Our handy Best Time guides can help you suss out those low-peak dates when the weather is still fine.
  • Look for price-match guarantees. If you're booking a simple package (like a hotel stay and flights), compare a few online travel sites for the best rates. If you have a preferred site, see if it price matches.

Should I book a holiday during the Boxing Day sales during a pandeimc?

While the decision is ultimately yours, we'd recommend booking whatever you're comfortable with while keeping government regulations in mind - both in your home destination (for quarantine restrictions upon return) and in the location of your holiday. A few measures that companies are doing and peace-of-mind points that could help you make a decision could include:

  • Flexible deposits and tour departures: Many tour operators, including big names like Contiki, G Adventures and Trafalgar, are offering a flexible deposit option. The terms do change a bit between companies, but the gist of it is that if you're unable to travel due to government restrictions or you don't feel comfortable doing so, you'll be able to change the date or tour option altogether. You'll need to do this within a reasonable amount of time prior to departure, usually about 30 days prior.
  • COVID-safety measures in place by operators: Extra safety measure are in place by most tour operators, including extra cleaning measures, increased availability of sanitisers, smaller groups and discounted single supplements if you're feeling uncomfortable sharing a room. For example, G Adventures' single room option is currently discounted by 50%.
  • Newly available travel insurance options: Some travel insurance companies are now offering cover for COVID-19-related claims. Things that may be covered including cancellation if you have contracted the virus and can't travel and if your accommodation gets cancelled due to cases on-site.
