For the last 15 months Hayley and I have had the Companion Pass through @Southwest
Airlines, which granted us a free ticket for every flight we bought with cash or points. Our goal was to make the most of this travel perk, without breaking the bank.
I crunched the numbers, and in the 15 months, we’ve had the Pass we’ve been on 49 different flights (layovers included), flown 35,984 miles on 15 trips. We’ve visited 13 cities, in 10 states and 3 countries, and we’ve been away for 46 nights.
really made our overnight stays not only affordable but were always superior to staying in a hotel. Unbelievably, between the companion pass, airline points, periodically renting our spare room on Airbnb, and occasionally driving for Lyft we ended up breaking even on our flights, lodging, and rental cars. Thanks, @Southwest
for making these past 15 months wonderfully fun and adventurous.
