Learn how to fly FREE around the U.S. and the Caribbean on Southwest Airlines in ONE simple step

My family in San Diego on our first trip flying free and using the Southwest Companion Pass

My family of 4 flies nearly everywhere FREE.

And we have since 2015 ... when we learned about the Southwest Companion Pass.

The Southwest Companion Pass is THE best deal in travel ... so amazing that it sounds too good to be true.

When you earn it, 1 person ALWAYS flies free with you for the life of the pass. And each pass is good for as long as 2 years!

With the average roundtrip fare in the U.S. ~$350, if you fly six times a year like we do, you could save $4,000 over the life of the pass in two years!

But even more good news: it's really easy to earn!

Collecting miles and points to fly free CAN be a complicated hobby, but it doesn't need to be.

I don't have time for that, do you? I like to KEEP IT SIMPLE.

The Companion Pass IS simple. Earn it once and it's good for 2 years AND you have 110,000 points to spend on FREE Southwest flights anywhere they fly in the U.S. (soon Hawaii!) and the Caribbean to pay for the rest of your traveling party.

The FIRST year we had the pass, we flew to SIX destinations in the U.S. for less than $100 PER flight for ALL 4 of us. Yep... Now we don't even spend that much.

If you can just earn this ONE Companion Pass, you'll be able to experience the joy of travel with your loved ones, just like I've done for my family.

If cost is no longer a barrier for your family to travel, where would you go?

The National Parks?

Disney World?

New York City?

California Wine Country?

The Caribbean?

We've done it ALL using points :).

This course is going to quickly walk you through EXACTLY how to fly FREE on Southwest by showing you how to earn the Companion Pass for the first, second or third time (we're on our 4th pass currently).

I've curated ALL the information you need to know and put it in a user-friendly format complete with step-by-step checklists of exactly WHAT you need to do WHEN.

I'm going to hold your hand through the process so you don't get confused. I get tons of questions from the readers of my GotoTravelGal.com blog EVERY day about the flying free, so I know many of the questions you'll have and I've answered them all :)!

Plus, I've earned the pass FOUR times myself, so I've been through it personally time and time again!

Here's what you'll get in the course:

  • The ability to fly you AND your family members FREE on Southwest for the rest of your life - yep!
  • Step-by-step how to earn the Southwest Companion Pass so 1 person ALWAYS flies free
  • Roadmaps, plans and checklists to follow on your journey to the Companion Pass
  • Exactly how my family flies free on Southwest
  • How to get your SECOND (and third and fourth...) Southwest Companion Passes
  • Case studies of how others have earned their passes and fly free on Southwest
  • Everything you don't know you need to know in order NOT to make a mistake earning the pass, as I see many of my readers do over and over again
  • FAQs
  • The ability to ask me questions and get timely answers

If you want to start traveling more, this is the EASIEST thing you can do to eliminate the cost of flying, and by the end of the course, you'll know exactly what steps to take to start flying free in just a few months.

It's time to up your family's travel game! Where will you go?
