Start looking for Black Friday travel gadget deals now. Early Black Friday deals have been rolling out the first week of November, and while it’s air fryers, vacuum cleaners, and coffee makers that are already getting record-low prices, we’re also seeing many money-saving discounts on travel gear you need for when you leave home.

Right now, the Samsonite Freeform expandable luggage is now only $189.00 at Amazon, saving you $80. If you want a weekender, the affordable Ozark Trail 90L Packable duffel bag is now under $25 cheap at Walmart. Need travel accessories? There's the excellent Sony WH-1000XM4 that's 35% off and the new GoPro HERO11 Black accessory bundle that's gotten a $100 discount.
Don't worry if you’re not seeing the luggage, weekender, and accessories you absolutely want, more will roll out during Black Friday week. We’re keeping an eye on deals to come so we’ll help you score something you like for less as soon as they’re live. However, if you’ve got travel plans soon and cannot wait, here are the best Black Friday travel deals we’ve found so far.
