"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from airports that start with Y."

Swoop is having a 'buy one fare, and pay only the taxes/fees on the second fare' sale

As you can imagine, the airlines are going through a tough time right now. Worldwide, they're projected to lose $113 billion in 2020.

Swoop has released a promo code, with the following offer, when booking 2 tickets:

- pay the normal price for the first fare (base fare + taxes & fees)
- pay only the taxes and fees for the second fare

If you're booking for 4 or 6 passengers, every 2nd fare will have the base fare removed from the price.

Overall I'd say on Swoop's more expensive routes, you're likely saving about $25-$50 per passenger off the usual prices. On some of their routes the base fare is often already really low, so you're not saving a ton on those.

There could be some pretty great prices (see below for routes I would look at). As far as I can tell, Swoop hasn't done anything too sneaky, like raising their fares before releasing this code.

How to use this code

1. Go to the Swoop website

2. Search for a flight. You need to search for a flight first, before entering the promo code.

3. In the box that says: 'Have a promo code?' - Enter the following promo code: BOGOBASE
