Even at $599, the Frontier unlimited Go Wild flight pass is a big fat pass

Frontier Unlimited Flight Pass

Earlier in the month we heard that Frontier had green-lit an unlimited flight pass, but the details were slim at best, but now we know the skinny. It will cost $599, you will have to wait to book and confirm your flights until the day before travel, and it all starts on May 2nd 2023. This wouldn’t work for most people, but for $599, I think there could be a market that would bite even if they used it to take last minute trips to Vegas, Chicago, NYC for the weekend.

These all you can fly passes don’t include bags or seat assignments and come with some peak holiday travel black out dates ( think 4th of July weekend, Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, etc. ). This isn’t surprising since it’s Frontier and wouldn’t at face value dissuade me from the pass.

Weirdly, there is a clause that says taxes, fees, and charges apply at the time of booking. Wait… I thought we already the pass. What other charges are there?

At face value, $599 is super cheap for an all you can fly pass, and if you’re prone to booking fun last minute getaways, this could make some sense for you. But, there are only a set amount of passes available at $599, and the other passes are $1999. We don’t know how many are for sale at $599, and this next part is just ridiculous.

THE BIG KICKER! THE PASS AUTOMATICALLY RENEWS! AT $1999 – are you kidding me?!

Up until this point… I’d have almost said screw it, I do this for a living and I’ll bite at the $599. But the auto-renewal feels like a sneaky way to bait people into a $1999 bill at the end of year one.

No thank you!

    I wish i never bought the go wild from frontier. I’ve never seen a availability for the discount. We should contact attorney to sue this airline.

    I can definitely purchase a round trip ticket, and it does only charge fees. $30 for a cross country round trip, because I’m willing to travel last day. I don’t like adventures, but I work from home, and nobody knows where home is today. I’m not shilling for the company, in fact, I’m pretty sure I hate them, but this does seem to work for me.

    I am booked and confirmed for thirty bucks round trip. That’s without a suitcase, just a backpack with four days worth of stuff.

    The process was irritating, but if you can deal with that, I think the deal is real.

    similar experience. I purchased two of these packages, $800 total, but EVERY flight I pull up it simply says “unavailable”. No matter where or what day. I have contacted them and they basically said “sorry, no refunds”. I have contacted FAA, BBB, and DOT about this, but I will have to accept the fact that Frontier stole my $800 and I cannot imagine how they would ever expect me to book with them ever again. Although, I’m sure for them, it’s probably $800 more than I ever would have anyway, so worth it to them. Stick to reputable airlines, I suppose.

  • […] was auto-renew at $1999 a year ( ARE YOU SERIOUS ) which was one of the big reasons I said it was a big fat pass. The pass is still available for purchase and I would seriously advise a deep dive to make sure you […]

    This is the biggest scam ever……the rules also say that you can cancel the auto renewal at any time by going into your profile and hitting the “cancel auto renewal” button….the catch….that button doesn’t exist!!!!! Please write an article about that. Also they sent their GoWild pass suckers an e-mail with a promotion that allowed us to use our passes for travel in Jan – Feb. if we booked the flight before midnight on Dec 25. So what happened to only being able to book the flight 24 hours before the flight? The real scam though is the fact that when you compare the price of the flight using the GoWild pass as opposed to just buying a ticket the savings are less than $20 bucks at most for most flights…..because with GoWild pass you still have to pay taxes and fees………….

      Can you send me an email with some screen caps since I don’t have a membership and i’ll do an update post. Miles@monkeymiles.com thank you!

    The other thing about this pass is that you can’t book a round-trip ticket with it. Its not completely obvious based on their FAQ and terms and conditions but it appears you have to book each one-way segment of your trip the day before you want to depart.

    There is a real possibility you might get stranded at your destination while you wait for a flight to be available to return home. I could also see many situations where my arrival time at an airport was at 10pm at night but the connecting flight was at 6am the next day. Who wants to sleep at the airport? This seems like a clever gimmick to fill empty seats at the last minute without much concern for the well being of the traveler.
