Get Free Flights with Southwest Airline’s Companion Pass, Travel Leisure, travel

The Incredible Airline Perk You Need to Get Right Now

If you fly Southwest Airlines and don’t have the Companion Pass, you could be losing thousands of dollars a year.

In On Points, Brian Kelly, founder of The Points Guy, shares his strategies for getting the most out of your points and miles.

Southwest Airlines is…different. It’s the only U.S. airline that still gives passengers two free checked bags on all fares, and doesn’t charge fees for flight changes or cancellations. But the biggest difference may be its loyalty program, Rapid Rewards. It’s typical in a lot of ways—as with JetBlue and Virgin America, you can redeem points for any flight. Like United and Delta, Southwest gives you points depending on how much you spend.

But Southwest also offers one of the most powerful perks in existence, if you know how to get it and use it: the Companion Pass.

Why the Companion Pass is Special

This isn’t your typical companion pass, which can be redeemed once for a “free” ticket (usually with additional fees and scant seat availability). It is much, much more valuable. Southwest’s Companion Pass is a semi-elite status. When you fly 100 flights OR accrue 110,000 Companion Pass Qualifying Points (more on that in a minute) in a calendar year, you achieve Companion Pass Status. You don’t have to trade in the miles for status—you get it in addition to those points.

That means you can take a designated companion with you whenever you buy or use points for a Southwest ticket, paying only nominal government fees. And get this—the status is good for the whole year that you qualify and the following year. So the earlier you get your Companion Pass in a calendar year, the more time you have to maximize it. For example, if you qualify on February 15, 2016, it will be valid until December 31, 2017.

You Can Get It Without Even Flying

Amazingly, you don’t need to set foot on a plane to earn those 110,000 Companion Pass Qualifying Points: you can do it by signing up for a Southwest credit card from Chase.

The sign-up bonus (which is currently 50,000 points) counts towards pass status. And if you have a small business, you can also get the business version of the card; after you spend $2,000 on each card to get your bonus, you end up at 104,000 points. You need to charge $6,000 more to get the Companion Pass, since every dollar spent on the credit card earns 1 qualifying point.

Earn Southwest Qualifying Points with Hotel Rewards

You can also reach companion pass status by transferring hotel points to Southwest. You usually don’t get a great exchange rate when transferring hotel points to airlines, but in this case there is an amazing option. With Marriott’s Hotel + Air packages, you can redeem hotel points for seven nights at a hotel, bundled with airline miles from carriers that include Southwest. The Southwest packages start at just 270,000 Marriott points for a week at a category 1-5 hotel and 120,000 Southwest points, which is more than enough for Companion Pass status! Once you complete this redemption by calling Marriott and the points hit your Southwest account, you’ll get Companion Pass status. It is that easy. I did it several years ago when I stayed at the JW Marriott in Cannes during the annual film festival, which was one of my best redemptions ever.

More Ways to Earn Your Companion Pass

There are other ways to earn those qualifying points:

• Shop though Southwest’s online portal—and you don’t need the credit card to do so.

• Rent cars from companies including Hertz, Dollar, Alamo.

What Else You Should Know

• You can add your companion on to any ticket, even if your company purchases it.

• Companions can be added on to all Southwest-operated flights, including their new international routes to places like Aruba and Costa Rica.

• Companions don’t have to fly with you on every part of your journey—if you’re flying roundtrip and need to leave on a business trip, your companion doesn’t have to return with you. However, they do have to fly with you to get the flight for free. You can’t book a flight for you and a companion and then cancel your ticket.

• You can change your companion up to three times during the validity of your Companion Pass. But no double-dipping! Each time you add a new companion, all existing reservations with your old companion will be invalidated.

How to Become a Travel Companion, travel companion.#Travel #companion

How to Become a Travel Companion

Research the requirements to become a travel companion. Learn about the job description and duties and read the step-by-step process to start a career as a travel companion.

Should I Become a Travel Companion?

Travel companions accompany travelers to provide assistance, nursing care and supervision, or just to provide companionship. Minimally, these companions may provide an additional driver for long road trips. In many cases, they accompany elderly travelers or children to provide assistance or supervision on domestic flights.

In some cases, particularly for disabled travelers, these professionals accompany an individual for the entire trip and provide personal care including bathing and assisting with bathroom, dressing and mobility issues. Individuals with medical conditions may hire a medical travel companion to assist with medical issues during trips. Accompanying others as a companion may require patience and empathy in situations that may cause stress for the travelers.

  • Resort Management
  • Resort, Hotel, Motel, and Spa Management
  • Restaurant Mgmt
  • Travel and Tourism Management

Career Requirements

Sources: PayScale.com, Travel companion service providers, Travel companion job listings (November 2012).

Step 1: Research the Career

Depending on the needs of the traveler, a companion may need previous experience as an airline professional or have a background in healthcare, experience in childcare, experience caring for disabled persons or simply experience traveling worldwide. As a travel companion, one must be comfortable with assisting those with disabilities, the elderly, those with travel anxiety or juveniles. The companion must be able to meet the specific needs each individual requires. Travel companions have the opportunity to travel nationwide or internationally and must be comfortable with all that traveling entails.

Many travel companions find travel companion jobs through listings on travel sites, job advertisements and in personal ads. Risks are associated with finding positions this way, including a lack of background checks and that the client may be seeking personal escort services rather than a legitimate travel companion. Some travel companion website exchange services purport to match travelers and companions based on personality profiles. The traveler and the companion negotiate their own terms for the travel companion’s services.

Success Tip

  • Put the terms in writing. The best way to ensure that no misunderstandings regarding travel companion services occur is to put the payment terms and services required in contract form, which both parties sign.

Step Two: Complete Healthcare Training

Travel companions hired for medical reasons typically need to have earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, an Associate Degree in Nursing or a nursing diploma. These degrees can take anywhere from 2-4 years to earn. Some of the coursework required for this career path may include anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry and pharmacology. After earning a degree in nursing, one must pass a national licensing exam to be able to legally practice as a nurse. Other healthcare backgrounds that are appropriate for travel companions include training as a certified medical assistant or paramedic.

Step Three: Meet Experience and Skill Requirements

When a travel companion is needed to assist an individual for medical reasons, the companion must have skills that enable him or her to observe varying health conditions, record and monitor vital signs and stabilize the traveler and safely move him or her from one location to the next. Disabled travelers have special needs that the travel companion will be expected to address with compassion and discretion, such as assisting the client with personal care and mobility issues. When supervising children, the companion may have to keep the children occupied and ensure they are not disruptive while keeping them safe. A travel companion must have organizational skills, be sympathetic and caring and enjoy establishing relationships with a diverse group of individuals. Companions are generally expected to carry the client’s luggage, to deal with interruptions and delays in travel itineraries and make alternate arrangements, to keep the client’s host or family at the destination apprised of the client’s status and to make the client’s trip as pleasant and stress-free as possible.

Step Four: Apply for a Position With a Travel Companion Service Company

Some legitimate companies provide travel companion services. By obtaining a position with one of these service providers, travel companions can ensure the clients they will be accompanying have been screened and will want only legitimate services from the travel companion. Clients are similarly reassured that the companion has undergone a thorough background check, has references, may be insured and is held accountable by the agency that employs the companion.

Step Five: Obtain Marketable Credentials for Career Advancement

Jobs with travel companion service companies are highly competitive. Therefore, candidates should be sure their experience and credentials give them a competitive edge. Having Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Basic Life Support (BLS) certifications will provide an edge, as will a history of extensive travel experience. A clean criminal record is vital, as are a positive attitude and an ability to respond calmly in stressful situations. Keep nursing and other medical licenses or certifications current.

International Escort – Elite Luxury Touring Escort, travel companion.#Travel #companion

International Escort

Travel companion

Travel companion

International Escort

Contact +61 407153828 ( through whatsapp)

To keep informed of my travel worldwide, add your email address to my mailing list here:

Hello gentlemen, and welcome to my International website. My name is Adela Blackwood. Some of you may remember me as Stephanie Hunter years ago, but in recent times I rebranded, and a change of name was refreshing. I think that was more psychological for me, then any other reason for the change in name. But here we are.

I don t know how you arrived at my website, but hope that you take your time to look through, and hopefully, will contact me to take things to the next level. Of Australian heritage, I like to think of myself more as a citizen of the world. I have traveled extensively, and when flying I feel like I am in my second home. Maybe its the fact that I am not contactable via email or phone while on the plane that I love. Or maybe its catching up on movies! Not sure, but either way, I love to travel to new and interesting location with a special person I can share the experiences with and create ever lasting moments in time. I am based in Melbourne, Australia with worldwide availability to meet. We can meet by private arrangement and request, alternatively, I have availability to meet when touring Internationally on a regular basis.

International Touring Escort

Travel companionMy time is probably more suitable to professional gentlemen, who are looking for a mature, discreet lady for exquisite female companionship. Someone who doesn t fit the typical stereotype of an what an escort is. My favourite and most successful dates that have been reoccurring not one off s are with gentlemen who would like to see a professional companion, but haven t ventures into the arena because they are looking for something more intimate and organic. They don t want to feel like a number. They like to have that arrangement with a woman they feel a genuine connection with, but to also be an arrangement not a traditional marriage or a relationship. Where both parties have separate lives, outside of the time spent together which they go back to. If you are someone that engages the services of escorts on a regular basis, and treat this as a hobby, and asks for menu of services , please don t contact me. I predict we will not be a good match. There is an array of professional ladies that offer a bevy of delicacies or the type of menu you have requested. I don t offer a menu.

Discreet Mature Companion

Travel companion

Well travelled, educated and very easy to be with, I enjoy honest, genuine company. I don t need all the bells and whistles when it comes to companionship. What I value most is honesty and genuine mutual respect. Yes, you are paying for my time when you make the decision for us to meet, but once we meet, it should be organic, mutually respectful encounter. Two people meeting, getting to know each other and seeing where that leads from there. Often, it leads to wonderful long term friendships with benefits, where you feel comfortable to discuss and share anything and everything. That s when it has been a successful pairing . I believe chemistry comes from something much deeper then just the obvious physical attraction. This ultimately is what steers the direction of a magical time spent together. And maybe this is where I am slightly different to the typical perception of what an escort actually is. I am basically looking for that rare breed of gentleman that is looking for something that is more than just skin deep.

Travel Companion

We can meet in your city. Or alternatively, we can travel together. Maybe could just hang out on your yacht together ( If you have one) and cruise the seas. Anything is possible, and we can make it happen. We can go to the ballet, or theatre, or we can dine in fancy ( or not fancy) restaurants. I can be your plus 1 at that event you want to attend, but not alone. Perhaps you have always wanted to go to Tahiti or The Maldives for a romantic holiday, but are missing that special person to go with. You know the Maldives are sinking. We should go and see them before they disappear. As an International escort I am ready and packed for that special trip.

I can assure you that I dress and present impeccably for any event. I can be casual in jeans and a white shirt, just as easily in a sleek Dior gown. Chic is how I like to always be presented. I do not have any tattoos or piercings. Plastic surgery is not something I am against, but I haven s gone down that route, so I am completely natural everywhere. I will not turn heads for all the wrong reasons when we are together. You will not look odd, standing next to me boarding a plane to our foreign luxurious adventure together.You will get looks, but they will be admiration. I had once someone dear to me say I enjoy getting the lucky bastard looks when I am with you. No one used to notice me when I travelled alone before . I think that was a marvellous compliment, and I have never forgotten that.

Independent Escort

I am an Independent escort. I am not affiliated or represented by a third party. As a professional lady, I pride myself on discretion and professionalism at all times especially when you are entrusting me with your personal private information. When you are contacting me via email, you are speaking directly with me at all times.

Touring High Class Escort

Travel companion

2018 will be an exciting year. I plan to tour Internationally and nationally frequently. Alternatively, I am available to meet by personal request privately also.

The best way to keep track of my touring schedule is to add your email address to my mailing list. When I have firm dates in place, I will send out a discreet newsletter to your email inbox. When touring, It is a must that you make firm arrangements to meet before I arrive. Please take note, very rarely will I take last minute appointments when in your city. It is not my preference to tour in this manner and I feel much more comfortable and organised when dates have been arranged in advance. I understand this is not always possible, which is why you are welcome to contact me when I arrive, just bear in mind, chances are I won t have availability to meet last minute.

Thank you for your understanding.

Southwest Companion Pass – The Best Deal in Travel for Family

Southwest Companion Pass – The Best Deal in Travel for Family Flights

Why Southwest Ever?

Southwest Airlines does not offer upgrades (though their seats have a pitch comparable to some economy plus seats). That disqualifies them for much of our readership, but to those who are open there are some serious benefits available from the largest domestic carrier in the United States.

One advantage of flying Southwest is their network of point-to-point destinations from non-hub airports like Omaha, and Kansas City, Tampa and Albuquerque with cheap one-way flight pricing. They have also made hubs in convenient city locations like Dallas Love Field, and Chicago Midway and offer direct flights from non-hubs to almost every airport in the country from Orlando and Las Vegas.

Southwest’s biggest advantage is the Companion Pass . Here is how it works. After accruing 110,000 points in a calendar year the earner is rewarded with a companion pass whereby a named companion can fly with the earner for free until the end of the following calendar year. The airline does not distinguish points earned in the program as elite qualifying from regular redemption miles, meaning that you don’t even have to fly Southwest to earn the points.

That sounds more complex than it is.

I crossed 110,000 points in February of 2015. I named my wife as my companion. Any time that I fly through the rest of 2015 and all of 2016 she can be added on to my tickets for just the cost of taxes (usually $5.60/each way) even if I am flying on point redemption tickets.

But How Did I Earn the 110,000 Points by February?

I signed up for two credit cards from Chase, a bank I love. To be absolutely clear, I do not earn referral commissions for any credit cards. I am discussing the card because I love the Companion Pass, not because I am paid to do so. If you want to apply go directly to Chase.

The personal Southwest card awarded 50,000 points after spending $2,000 within the first 90 days, plus the 2,000 points for spending the $2,000 as it earns 1 Rapids Rewards point per $1 spent on the card. I did the same with the business card, giving me 104,000 points. I then made some normal purchases through the Southwest online shopping portal and earned the remaining 6,000 points to get me over the 110,000 mark.

Southwest does not distinguish points from credit card spend, flying or shopping. The only points that they do distinguish are purchased points (those don’t count), transfers from Ultimate Rewards points like the Chase Sapphire Preferred card or Chase Ink or transfers in from hotel partners – those would not count according to reader Patrick, some hotel transfers do count, he identifies Choice hotels at a transfer rate of 3.3 Choice Privilege points to 1 Southwest Rapid Rewards point though I have not confirmed myself, we will take Patrick’s word on this. Everything else does.

How Have We Used It?

We are trying to get the most possible value out of the pass without losing our minds. Every time we have a flight we need to take that we do not fly American (where we have status) is one where we will fly in coach instead of first class. There are times where I will gladly forgo an upgrade to first class and fly coach. For example, my parents have a condo in Florida and our home airport has direct flights there. In two hours we can be dropping our bags at their place and another ten minutes and we are in the pool. On top of that Southwest has two daily flights to that airport, one early in the day allowing us the maximum time if I need to take the day off from work to enjoy the beach instead of spending all day making connections and flying. The second option is a direct flight at 7PM in the evening which allows me to work the whole day and then go to the airport keeping some of those valuable days off saved for later.

Open bin space is another advantage to flying Southwest.

Direct flights have been a key advantage of flying Southwest, but I also wanted to get some real value out of it and that involved a connection. I surprised my wife with a trip to Aruba for her 30th birthday, but flights to international destinations are very much hub and spoke and less point to point, just like the big network carriers. On this particular flight we flew through BWI before landing in Aruba 4.5 hours later.

The last thing you want to do when you get off a Southwest plane is get on another one. So for us, we will limit future trips to just direct flights of less than three hours or when the others are astronomically higher which rarely happens.

Fart Can and Open Seating

I have yet to step on a Southwest plane that does not reek of flatulence. You can blame the airline, the cleaning crew or the clientele, but either way it is always gross. And I feel gross when I fly them.

But once you get adjusted to the smell, the big advantage for us, is flights are rarely sold out 100%. While there may only be 5-10 open seats per flight (an excellent sign for the airline) we board with baby at the end of A boarding. That means that my wife, myself and the baby get on after the first 60 people, but on a jet with seating for 140 or so, the infant tends to be something to avoid so we typically have a row to ourselves due to sociological reasons and suspicions of our baby s behavior on a plane. That s something that we don t get when flying with the other airlines where people cannot choose to avoid seats next to babies.

How Much Value Is In The Companion Pass?

While our daughter is under two years old until January of 2016, the three of us are flying for just the cost of my ticket and my wife s taxes. For Aruba that meant using points instead of paying about $500 out of pocket for me, and then my wife flew for $76 (taxes) and the baby for just $16 (I think there may have been an error there but I am not complaining). Assuming that we would have gone on the trip anyway and not just because it was free, we would have paid about $1125 to fly the same trip on American, though we would have earned status and miles and flown in first class due to status and instruments.

Instead however, we were just $76 each out of pocket plus my daughter s $16 (total of $178) and about 24,000 points. That s well worth putting a $1000 back in my pocket and makes an easy case for the program.

Assuming that we did this kind of trip for all of the miles from just the sign up activity alone, the card would return more than $4500 to us, and that is an outsized value for two credit card sign ups.

Any time there is an outsized value (and there have been dozens of examples in the past) expect a correction . I assume that Southwest will begin to distinguish their bonus points (though not regular spend points) from companion pass eligible points and essentially end a large number of the passes out there. I have no direct information to confirm this, but any time there is a value too large and too good to be true, it will be made untrue. If I were you, I would get on this now, If you apply for cards in November/December but don’t hit the full bonus points posting until January you will have two full years to enjoy it. It should also lock you in because it’s essentially making a contract with customers and while all airlines can change these policies any time they want, it would be bad PR for them to cancel the program with short notice (Mike, I am looking at you ).
