Frontier has discounted their Go Wild Pass to only $599 for a limited time for the first year. Retail and Renewal Price is $1,999/yr. You can only get a confirmed seat the day before any given flight, which makes roundtrips possibly tricky. (Isn’t this similar to how standby for airline employees works?) Doesn’t start until May 2023. The details:

  • Flights must be booked at flyfrontier.com
  • Flights will be available to book and fly starting May 2, 2023
  • Flights can be booked and confirmed the day before flight departure for domestic travel and starting 10 days before flight departure for international travel

    2024: January 1, 15; February 15, 16, 19; March 3, 10, 15-17, 22-24, 29-31; April 5-7, 12-14. Blackout dates for May 2024 and beyond will be posted in advance of accepting any enrollments for pass periods which cover those dates.
  • Flights do not include any add-on products (like bags or seats), you can still customize your travel
  • Taxes, fees, and charges apply at the time of booking. (Current government and airport taxes, fees and charges start at approximately $14.60 per person, per flight.)
  • A fare of $0.01 will be charged for each segment booked
  • Flights and seats are subject to availability; last seat availability is not guaranteed
  • Travel not eligible to earn miles or status
  • Travel qualifies as activity and will extend your FRONTIER Miles expiration
  • The GoWild! Pass is non-transferable. The pass holder is the only allowed passenger to travel with GoWild! Pass privileges.
  • Your Pass will automatically renew for successive one-year terms unless you cancel

Later added:

CAN I BOOK INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS USING GOWILD! PASS?
Yes, international flights can be booked using the GoWild! Pass starting 10 days before flight departure. Passholders are responsible for complying with all international travel and immigration requirements including, but not limited to, providing evidence of confirmed return or onward travel where applicable. Codeshare travel is not available using the GoWild! Pass. Please see below for more details on passholder responsibilities for taxes, fees, and charges applicable at the time of booking.

An interesting promotion for people with very flexible schedules and that live near an airport serviced by Frontier Airlines (or can just keep hopping anywhere as digital nomads). Note that the taxes and fees will add up to about $15-$20 per US flight segment and possibly over $100 per international flight, plus any baggage/seat selection fees. See Frontier route map.

  1. Am I not looking carefully enough, but it doesn’t seem that Frontier flies into Los Angeles or Santa Barbara airports. A connecting flight on another airline wouldn’t seem possible. What am I missing?

  2. Leslie M Hager, JD says

    My husband bought two of these, for the two of us. We read the fine print which stated, “Travelers will be able to book and confirm the day before” This Is not the same as Travelers will be required to book and confirm… When a document stating “the other party will be able to pay the bills as they become due” it does not mean the paying party has to wait until the due date to make payment. It means you can pay at any time up to and including the day they become due. That is different from the party is required to or must pay on the due date. May and must have two different meanings legally. MAY means, the party is allowed to and MUST means it is a requirement.
    Law.com defines it this way: may
    v. a choice to act or not, or a promise of a possibility, as distinguished from
    “shall,” which makes it imperative.
    I DO NOT think this was an oversight by Frontier. I believe it is meant to be misleading in order to bring in many customers who will buy the pass thinking the language in this part of the Go Pass means “will be able to{ a legal definition, used in a contract but later finds out how Frontier misinterprets it and then realize sit is of little or no value to them because of this very language which was improperly used. Especially interesting about this particular situation is the fact that Frontier Go Wild Pass comes on the heels of a judgment against Frontier being levied because of customers who were not given compensation when their flights were cancelled or delayed. In other words, poor customer relations. I do not see where misleading customers with the Go Wild Pass is going to help their customer relations at all. I know Frontier has attorneys on staff and attorneys know the legal difference between the words must and may, Also, any ambiguities in a contract are interpreted against the writer of the contract. In this case, that is Frontier Airlines. Another day in court is on its way for Frontier.

  3. Tried signing up but I keep getting this “Session token authentication failure.” every attempt. Already sold out?

  4. They’ve added International flights to the offer, with 10 day advance booking for international, still day-before for domestic.

  5. Added: $599 sale ends at 11:59 PM Mountain Time on November 18, 2022!

  6. Interesting offering, and thank you for sharing!

    From my home base there’s exactly one direct option listed – to Denver, which seems to be their hub.

    Looking at the calendar view, I can also get those tickets to Denver as cheap as $19 through the $100 membership instead, or $60 without any membership.

    Normal pricing matches United pricing for the same leg, so they really only are a deal with their more impulsive tickets.

    Comparing their discount flights to the $600 pass, it looks like I’d need to fly (round trip) ~5 times to Denver per year to break-even, or 13 with the $100 membership. The language for the pass around connecting flights is even more vague about how possible those are going to be to book, but as long as you’re flexible about your layover being possibly a day or more, that’s fine.

    If we were retired or I were single, I’d be considering this at $599 – it might lead to a really fun year of hopping around without a plan. Definitely not at the full price, though.

    As it is, I need to re-consider Frontier as an airline – I didn’t realize they had flights from the more local airport – I’ve only ever encountered them out of the crappy far away airport in my area, or Denver.

    I had the same understanding of the “confirm one day before;. I am concerned the day before being hard enough to schedule plus most flights will probably be full at that time so you won’t even be able to book on most flights – and can never do with a spouse that does not have the same deal.

  8. I bought a one way ticket from Columbus CMH to Orlando MCO and the total price was only $52, of which Airfare was $13 and the rest was taxes, external booking fees, and carrier interface charges. So if I spent $599 for the Go Wild I would only save $13 in this instance?? Am I missing something?

    I would have to fly A LOT to break even.

    • There are no booking fees or “carrier interface charge” with the Go Wild pass. Those are basically made-up Frontier fees that add up to $23 per flight segment.

      Your total was roughly $13 airfare, $23 crap Frontier fees, and $15 taxes. With this pass, you’d just pay the $15 in taxes so you’d save the $36 per segment.
