Wow Air Is Offering Free Flights To People Named ‘Valentine’

If you haven’t finalized your Valentine’s Day plans for Feb. 14, 2019, Wow Air is here with a promotion you’ll want to check out. The budget airline is offering a free roundtrip flight to Iceland during the week of Valentine’s Day. But don’t pack up your bags just yet.

There are some extremely rigorous eligibility requirements you’ll have to meet in order to qualify for this free trip. For starters, your name needs to be a form of “Valentine.” Unfortunately, middle names don’t make you eligible. But, for example, if your name is Valentin in Canada and France, Valentina in Germany in Denmark or Valentijn in the Netherlands, you’re in. Well, almost.

You also can’t travel solo. There must be at least two passengers on the reservation, even though the refund counts for only one passenger. It is a Valentine’s Day promotion after all. Romance and refunds are in the air. Your traveling twosome must plan on a roundtrip flight. It might be tempting to book a one-way ticket and never look back, but that won’t count. The flight reimbursement will cover one passenger’s roundtrip ticket.

So, there are a lot of qualifiers but it’s a pretty sweet deal if you happen to be eligible!

Direct Booking

OK, so there is actually another requirement you must meet. Your reservation must be made directly through Wow Air’s website. The booking must be made between Jan. 24 and Feb. 14, 2019 and paid for during the same timeframe. Finally, there’s a reward for procrastinators!

In fact, you could book the trip and fly on nearly the same day and qualify. The roundtrip flight must occur the week of Valentine’s Day, between Feb. 10 and Feb. 19, 2019.

Eligible Airports

Your departure airport options include several on the east coast and one in the midwest. You can depart from Boston (BOS), Detroit (DTW), New York-Newark (EWR) or Baltimore/Washington (BWI) and your destination must be to Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF).

Travelers must send the booking confirmation along with a photo of the Valentine-named passenger’s passport via email to The catch is you have to buy both tickets online before requesting the refund.

Wow Air is very serious about the restrictions saying, “If one of the above conditions is not fulfilled, a refund request will not be processed.” If you miss one of the conditions, you can still get a deal on a trip. Wow Air is also offering 30-percent off of select flights booked through its website with the code “WOWVALENTINE” for travel from Feb. 1 through May 31, 2019.

Romance is still in the air, no matter what your name is!
