Just a quick note to let you know what we're up to at Allegiant. Tomorrow we will be extending our schedule, allowing customers to book vacations through November 13, 2012. We know many of our communities have been eagerly awaiting the extension so that they may book their fall travel. Of course, with the schedule extension, we will also announce our extremely popular Early Bird Sale.
(Please note, the links in this email go to landing pages that will not be live on our website until 12 am PST 3/20)
The Early Bird Sale is intended to give the most savings to travelers who book their vacations farthest in advance. Airfare will be as low as $50 one-way on some routes (this includes taxes and fees, however, does not include baggage fees), and travelers who book their air and hotel together will save up to $40 per person off their round trip airfare. Fares must be purchased by April 2, 2012 for travel by November 13, 2012 (for full restrictions and disclaimer, please visit allegiant.com). Reservations can be made by visiting www.allegiant.com.
On average, over 20,000 customers book during this time period, many of them saving 30 percent or more on their vacation package. The number of tickets available at the discounted fare will be limited, so we encourage customers to book early for the lowest possible fare.
In 2011, Allegiant customers saved over $5 million on airfare by booking their air and hotel reservations together through allegiant.com. Through Allegiant's exclusive hotel packages, our customers received nearly 10,000 free hotel room nights last year. We are proud to offer affordable, convenient vacation packages and look forward to expanding our destination offerings while also making affordable vacations possible for more communities.
