The unholy teaming of Cyber Monday and Black Friday has been dubbed "Cyber Week" by many media outlets. No matter what you want to call it, know that this period of time—Friday, November 29 through Monday, December 2—is a cornucopia of all kinds of cut-rate offers. And the travel industry is no exception. We scoured the Earth (actually, we just looked on the Internet) to bring you the best travel deals available. Here are some of the most mouthwatering hotel, resort, and rail bargains available during the upcoming post-Turkey Day period of shopping insanity.
Save 65 Percent at Resorts with Liberty Travel
For Black Friday, travelers receive 65 percent off at resorts plus up to a $100 credit from Liberty Travel. The online travel agency is offering 99 black Friday deals in total, including more than half off rates at resorts in destinations like Cancun, Aruba, Riviera Maya, and St. John. Use a special Black Friday code, which the company will release on November 19, when booking to get take $50, $75, or $100 off your vacation cost (discounts vary based on trip price). Happily, most of these discounts apply to winter travel to sunny high-season destinations. Book by Monday, December 2.

On Cyber Monday, Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel, Philadelphia will sell business-class rooms for $19.26 a night (the hotel opened in 1926) for stays through the end of February.
