This afternoon, I received an email from Frontier Airlines about the GoWild! all-you-can-fly pass that I wrote about a few weeks ago.
The price is….drumroll please…$599 for the first year, with renewal price $1999/year. This offer is available through November 17, 2022, and the number of passes are limited. Link to buy pass here.
There are a lot of rules/caveats listed on the Frontier website:

Am I Buying a GoWild! Pass?
Uh…no. I think $599 is way too high for a pass like this, and I’m curious how many passes Frontier will sell at this price.
Right now, my lifestyle isn’t flexible enough to make this work. I have kids, a husband with limited PTO, and responsibilities at home that limit my flexibility.
Plus, you still have to pay taxes and fees for each flight segment.
And, your flights aren’t confirmed until the day before. It would be difficult to book hotels with hotel cancellation policies.
Honestly, if this pass were, say, $100, I might be curious to try it. But at $599? No way.
What do you think of the price? Will you be buying a Frontier GoWild! pass?
