If Your Passport Says Valentine, WOW Air Wants to Give You a Free Flight
WOW Air, the budget airline known for its cheap flights to Iceland and other destinations in Europe, is offering a deal for Valentine's Day that's hard to beat. As Thrillist reports, customers named Valentine are eligible for free a flight for their traveling partner if they're taking a trip around the holiday this year.
If the name of the patron saint of love is listed on your passport, WOW Air will refund airfare for a flight booked between January 24 and February 14 for trips taken between February 10 and February 19. The special offer is limited to flights to Reykjavik, Iceland leaving from either Boston, Detroit, New York, or Washington, D.C., and only the return flight will be paid back. Your trip doesn't need to be a romantic getaway, but WOW will only refund your ticket if the booking is for two or more passengers. (As they say, you're giving "the gift of a memorable trip to your loved one this Valentine’s Day!") Airport taxes and checked baggage fees for one bag are also covered in the free flight promotion.
The offer is open to anyone with the name Valentine, first or last (sadly, middle names don't count). Valentin (French), Valentina (Danish and German), and Valentijn (Dutch) are also acceptable forms of the name.
Valentines can make their namesake holiday memorable this year by booking a vacation and emailing a refund request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Emails must include the booking confirmation and a picture of the passenger's passport to be approved. For travelers with any other name who don't qualify for a free flight to Reykjavik, a cheap flight is your next best option. Just make sure you book at the right time.
