Free Companion Pass – Southwest Airlines

Read Time: 2 Minutes

Taking a trip is fun, but it can be even more fun with a companion, and even more fun fun when your companion is traveling for free! That kind of fancyish swagga could soon be in your life if you qualify to grab a free companion pass from Southwest Airlines. To make things even better, there are no blackout dates and it’s free to join the program.


How does one qualify? It’s actually pretty easy:

  • Enroll in the Rapid Rewards Program for free (Enroll Here)
  • Book and complete 3 round trip flights leaving from and returning to Atlanta, GA between February 13, 2015 and May 17, 2015
  • Get a sweet companion pass that’s valid through December 15, 2015

I went ahead and dug into the nitty gritty of the fine print and learned a few things about the promotion. To start, you’ll need to designate a single companion to be your travel buddy. I’m not sure that this can be altered once you’ve made a selection, so choose wisely. Also free really means almost free. You’ll still need to pay a $5.60 one-way trip security fee and any other taxes charged by foreign or government entities outside of Southwest.

You’ll need to allow up to 15 business days after you reach Companion Pass status before you can designate your Companion and your address must fall within one of the eligible zip codes to qualify. If you are new to Rapid Rewards program all you need to do is sign up. If you’re an existing member, your ATL address will need to be valid as of 2/05/2015.

What’s not to love about this deal? If you’re a frequent traveler like me, you can easily rack up the flights needed for a free pass. It’s also a great deal for professionals who travel for work or have recently relocated to Atlanta and is still travel back and forth between cities.

Will you sign up for this promotion from Southwest Airlines?

    I have decided that next summer I am going back to Europe, preferably Italy, to live there for a summer and travel all over Europe. However, I want to have a job while I am over there. I’ve been in contact with travel and tour companies but I’m wondering if you have any other suggestions? Like resorts or PR agencies or any other kind of field? I’d prefer travel and recreation and PR but I’d honestly be willing to work in any field. If you have any tips, advice, sites or contacts I would love to hear about them!
