Frontier Airlines offers all-you-can-fly passes: Are they worth it?

Few things get frequent flyers more excited than an all-you-can-fly pass. In theory, it’s the holy grail of a travel buffet of flight options. Frontier Airlines has been offering various all-you-can-fly passes for the past year, including seasonal passes and monthly passes. Now, Frontier has announced its 2024-2025 annual all-you-can-fly pass with a Black Friday discount.

The Frontier 2024 all-you-can-fly pass is a year-long pass valid from May 1, 2024, to April 30, 2025. It is priced at $499 and comes with Frontier Silver elite status for those who purchase it by Nov. 28. The Silver status tier offers standard seat selection at booking for the member with status.

Frontier also offers a monthly pass called the Frontier GoWild! Pass. This pass allows customers to commit to travel windows of 30 days at a time. There is an enrollment fee of $99 for the first month, and after that, customers pay $149 monthly for unlimited travel for 30 days from the date of purchase. The pass will automatically renew at the end of 30 days unless canceled. Additional fees for bags and seat assignments apply.

The Frontier all-you-can-fly pass pricing includes an annual pass, a summer pass, and a fall and winter pass. The prices and dates of use vary for each pass. The annual pass is priced at $499 per year and is valid from May 1, 2024, to April 30, 2025. The fall and winter pass is priced at $299 per year for a limited time and is valid from Sept. 2, 2023, to Feb. 29, 2024. The monthly pass is priced at $149 per month, with the first month free (excluding the $99 enrollment fee), and is valid for 30 days from the date of purchase.

Using the Frontier GoWild! Pass comes with some additional costs. Passholders are charged for each flight they take, with rates starting at $13 to $15 per domestic nonstop flight. Connecting itineraries and international trips can cost even more. Passholders are also charged for full-size carry-ons, checked bags, and advance seat assignments. However, passholders can try to obtain Frontier elite status to avoid some of these fees. Elite status can be obtained through spending on the Frontier credit card or through a status match with other travel cards.

The Frontier GoWild! Pass is valid on flights to more than 85 of Frontier’s domestic and international destinations, including routes to Mexico, the Caribbean, and Latin America. The booking window for domestic flights opens one day before travel, while the booking window for international travel opens 10 days before departure. However, availability may vary.

There are blackout dates when the Frontier GoWild! Pass cannot be used. These blackout dates include various dates throughout the year, such as holidays and peak travel periods.

To use the Frontier flight pass, passholders must search and book their flights on Frontier’s website. However, passholders are not guaranteed to be able to use the pass for domestic travel until the day before travel. For international travel, passholders can book and confirm their travel 10 days in advance. Flights are subject to availability, and last seat availability is not guaranteed.

The Frontier GoWild! Pass is available to travelers of all ages, but only travelers 18 years or older can purchase the pass. Passholders under the age of 13 must be enrolled by their parent or legal guardian. Passholders under the age of 15 must be accompanied by a passenger who is at least 15 years of age.

Whether the Frontier pass is a good deal depends on individual travel preferences and needs. It may be a good deal for those who don’t regularly spend a lot on bags and seat assignments and are flexible with their travel plans. However, there are additional costs for each flight, as well as taxes and fees.

In conclusion, the Frontier all-you-can-fly pass offers an enticing opportunity for frequent flyers to travel unlimitedly within a specific timeframe. However, it’s important to consider the costs and limitations associated with the pass before making a purchase.
