Itching to travel again? Yeah… me too. Today friends, we have some truly EPIC deals to share with you, some of which honour bookings for ALL OF 2021 – we’ve not seen a deal like this before, and it’s worth sharing.

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday rapidly approaching, now is the time to cash in on fantastic adventure gear and accommodation deals offered by some of our favourite brands.

For reference the Black Friday – Cyber Monday deal window is from November 27 – December 1st, 2020 in most cases.

 

Booking.com – 30% off accomodation!

Booking.com is running their biggest sale of the year – and according to our research – this is the only major booking platform offering such generous deals. To be honest, we don’t normally cover Black Friday – this year we have and it’s all because Booking.com are offering a CRAZY 30% off stays until the end of 2021!

Travelers get a minimum of 30% off selected stays until the end of 2021 on specific dates. The deal itself will run from the 19th of November to the 1st of December.

REI Co-Op – 50% off gear!

REI is the world’s best online outdoor (and in-person) gear shop, period. For this short window of time, you can score up to 50% off select gear – which has the potential to be a massive win if you play your cards right.

We all know quality gear is expensive – this is the moment to get that new sleeping bag or (normally) expensive raincoat you’ve been eyeing for a while now.

Massive GoPro discounts don’t come around that often so, if you are in the market for the new GoPro Hero9 Black or the GoPro Max – now is the time to go for it.

Grayl: The Perfect Gift for Any Traveler or Backpacker

The entire Broke Backpacker team has been using Grayl water purifying bottles for years now and the jury is out: the Grayl Geopress is a must-have piece of kit. Purify water from anywhere whilst cutting out the need to ever buy single-use plastic bottles again? Yeah, we are really into that idea.

The Geopress makes for the perfect holiday gift for that hiker, traveler, or adventurer in your life. And if you are not in a gifting mood the Geopress makes for an excellent present to yourself (and the planet) as well.

Boundary Supply: More Amazing Travel Pack Deals

Like Wandrd – Boundary Supply makes kick ass camera backpacks for traveling photographers.

And their Black Friday deals – seriously the discounts are massive.

Boundary Supply EXM Port

Get this: Up to 50% off site-wide from November 27 – 30th! This is a big deal because Boundary Supply packs are not the cheapest to begin with and one can get an awesome backpack for literally half the price during this short window. Yeah, I told you it was kinda a big deal.

Osprey Packs – The Environmental Deal

Like some of the other outdoor brands on this list, Osprey needs no introduction. They make some of the best backpacks in the business.

For Black Friday, they are not offering amazing discount deals – BUT – for every backpack sold they are donating 20% of sales to environmental organization EOCA from Friday, November 27th – Monday, November 30th.
