I think we all could use some shopping therapy after the roller-coaster year that 2020 has been.

I’m sure you’ve likely had at least a few cancelled or postponed trips because of COVID-19.  

So why not spend some money investing in travel essentials that will make your next trip feel extra special?

I’m looking forward to treating myself to some new travel-inspired gifts this holiday season. 

Read on to find my list of the best Black Friday deals for travelers.

Like most people on social media, I’ve been dreaming of investing in Away luggage for the last few years.

Right now they’re offering $45 off when you buy a carry-on suitcase and checked bag. Or $100 off when you buy a carry-on and two checked bags.
