Last month, Frontier announced potentially one of the best promotions in family travel. In a nutshell—kids fly FREE! With every paid adult fare, your child (aged 14 years or younger) will fly with you 100% for free. Originally, you had to purchase your flights (for future travel) by end of day today, but it looks like that deadline has been extended. Now you’ll have until February 25th to book your flights, but I foresee the date continuously being pushed back. This means you have almost another two weeks to book your discounted family travel!
Of course an awesome promotion like this doesn’t come without some caveats. First off, the adult must be a Discount Den member. This membership costs $59.99 and ultimately gives you access to lower fares throughout the year. If you fly with Frontier quite often, the membership is great, but if you are a once or twice a year flyer on Frontier, the membership probably isn’t worth it. However, now taking into consideration this promotion, it absolutely is worth purchasing the membership! Not only that, you can add up to 6 people onto your reservation using your Discount Den membership, so you do not need to purchase the membership per adult in your household!
Also, this promotion cannot be combined with other offer or promotion codes. Frontier runs 30-90% off promotions quite often where you typically need to enter a code to receive the discounted fare. Unfortunately you won’t be able to combine those promotions with the Kids Fly Free tickets. When those awesome offer codes pop up, you might want to see which promotion actually offers you better savings.
Any lastly, this promotion is only valid on certain dates so it is definitely not a free for all promotion. Only these dates qualify:
- February – 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27
- March – 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27
- April – 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30
- May – 1, 4, 7, 8, 11, 14, 15, 18, 21, 22, 29
- June – 1, 4, 5, 8, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26
- July – 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30
- August – 5, 6
Booking the Flight
When you search flights on FlyFrontier.com eligible flights will show “Kids Fly Free” right underneath the discount den pricing. You’ll then see the discounted price when you continue onto the next page.
While this is a great promotion, the dates are slightly limited, but can definitely work for a family with flexibility. Just remember though, Frontier still charges for seat assignments and baggage, which you’ll still have to pay for your “free” child’s ticket. Definitely price out your final overall cost when comparing to another airline.
Anyone find a great deal?!
