How to get 10% off airfare for all your guests on Alaska Airlines

Recommended Posts

Well this little gem fell in my lap through a very nice customer service rep at Alaska Airlines Group Sales Department...

 

I was trying to establish a discounted group rate for about 20+ of us but of course that means we're all flying out of the same airport at the same time. I mentioned it was for my wedding, and she suggested that I set up a "Meeting/Convention Fare" that would establish a 10% discount for every person flying to the same destination (for me Cancun) during a certain time period using a discount code. Departure city does not matter.

 

Technically you're supposed to have at least 10 people use the discount, but she says once they provide you with a code no one keeps track, it's just assummed you will hit that number. Also as a bonus, for every 40 passengers who use that code, you will get a tour conductor ticket (a free ticket to use domestic or international for up to a year) BUT you must provide them with all the ticket numbers so they can verify the 40.

 

Awesome deal, and with how expensive airfare is these days, it's definitely a great way to help everyone save!!! cheesy.gif

good to know! I just may try and establish the same deal with them too since Alaska doesn't serve all areas that I would need in the U.S. Thanks!!!

Just call them. I tried to do it online and they sent me a group booking quote instead huh.gif I know other airlines do it too... I just don't know the details.

Thanks for the information! I actually worked with both American & Continental for my wedding airfare.

We ended up going with Continental because they only asked for $100.00 deposit per ticket. The remaining balance for each ticket does not have to be paid until 1 month before the departure. The $100.00 is put towards your ticket price.

-On American, the $100.00 is not put towards your ticket balance but is refunded after you depart.

My guests found the "group booking" to be very helpful because they can make payments towards their airfare rather than having to pay their ticket in full at the time of booking.

Thanks so much for this tip! I called Alaska today and they are totally hooking me up with the 10% discount. It was super, super easy! I just said I have a lot of people flying out of CA to Puerto Vallarta. They are going to give me a code, and my guests can use the code on any flight from any city. It's wonderful!

I want to add that I am also getting 5% off all American Airlines flights. Again, it was super easy. Just call group sales. Tell them you are having a wedding. They are giving me 5% off for a block of 20 days and I already have my promotional code. No deposits, no stings. They can choose their flight and book on line. They ask that you have a minimum of 10 people flying, but it's not monitored. It's not a lot, but I'm happy I can offer my family & friends even a small discount during these crappy economic times.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
