In just three weeks, the busiest shopping day of the year will be upon us. Black Friday 2016falls on Friday 25th November and is the perfect time to get your Christmas gifts sorted or bag yourself a deal if there's something special you've had your eye on.

Where to Start with Black Friday Shopping:

With practically every retailer running a Black Friday sale, it's difficult to know where to begin, particularly if you haven't fully decided on what to get everyone for Christmas this year. Some retailers release new deals every hour, so be prepared to have your tablet at the ready and keep the evening free.

It's important to remember that Black Friday is no longer just one day, you'll see sales running from Monday 21st November right up until Sunday 4th December (Cyber Week) - although the best deals can often be bagged on Black Friday itself.

Dedicated Newsletter Sign-Ups

Of course, you can't be glued to the net for two whole weeks, which is why Black Friday newsletter sign-ups can come in handy if you've got your eye on something in particular. Your inbox might be bombarded for a few days, but it's the most efficient way of viewing deals. Larger retailer websites run slower and can even crash due to the amount of visitors on Black Friday - it's worth getting organised so you don't miss out or have a frustrating evening spent tapping that refresh button!

You can always unsubscribe after you've got your deal in the basket.

Let someone special unwrap an adventure and spoil them for less by signing up to the Virgin Balloon FlightsBlack Friday newsletter - receive exclusive discounts before anyone else.

Pssssst - *Our best offers are only available to the first 100 flyers who get their deal in the basket*

Spread the Word...


As the famous line in Elf goes - 'the best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud for all to hear'.

We all love Christmas, but it's a stressful time for everyone when it comes to choosing and buying gifts.

Why a Hot Air Balloon Ride?

Thrilling, yet serene - a hot air balloon ride is the ultimate bucket list activity that everyone should experience.

Forget material gifts that go out of fashion, break or lose their novelty. A champagne flight in an iconic Virgin balloon floating over incredible landscapes is something that will stay with them forever.
