Taking a family vacation, especially one that requires flying with kids can get expensive. However, it does not have to be expensive. After having kids, traveling does not have to end. Thanks to airlines like Frontier, and their Kids Fly Free program, many families will be able to travel a lot more this year.
Kids Fly FREE On Frontier Airlines
Our family travels often, and my number one recommendation for other families is to “fly to wherever is cheap.” That is our motto, and the only way we have been able to travel this much. We also don’t have an airline preference and typically choose the cheapest tickets we can find.

How Does The “Kids Fly Free On Frontier Airlines” Deal Work?
One child can fly free per each flying adult. Yes – FREE
Each child must be under 15 years of age – Amazing!
You have to be a Discount Den member, which costs $59.99 for a year membership. With this Discount Den membership, you can get even cheaper prices as well as purchase up to 6 tickets under your membership as long as you are on the same flight.
PS: This is an investment that is worth it, as the Discount Den flights are generally at least $5 cheaper than regular flights. Sometimes even up to $40 cheaper. This means that even if you take only one flight on Frontier, the Discount Den membership will pay for itself.
How Do I Book “Kids Fly Free on Frontier Airline” Flights?
Most flights that offer the kids fly free on Frontier Airlines are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. When it comes to budget travel, one has to be flexible. So, if you need to take the kids out of school for a few days to offer them a long-lasting travel experience, don’t feel bad. My kids are homeschooled which makes things easier, however if they were in school, I wouldn’t mind them missing a few days.
- Use the month option to search for what day has cheapest flights in the month.
- Although I love using Skyscanner Flights to book all my travel, for this deal to work you have to purchase directly from the Frontier website.
The “Kids Fly Free on Frontier Airlines” deal is available on the following days:
February: 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27
March: 5, 6, 12, 13,19, 20, 26, 27
April: 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30

Where To Fly To On Frontier Airlines
“Fly To Wherever Is Cheap”
– The Mom Trotter
One of the best flight deals I have gotten was $14 one way tickets from Las Vegas to Orlando. My husband and I took all 4 kids and we had an absolute blast.
I was looking for how to spend the weekend with my family when $20 one way tickets from Los Angeles to Denver popped up. We had so much fun exploring Denver as a family.
Just a few weeks ago I was browsing Skyscanner Flights to find cheap airfare, and I came across $20 fares from Palm Springs to Chicago. I immediately took advantage of that deal and purchased our tickets. A few days later off we were to Chicago.
Frontier flies to several domestic locations as well as Canada also.
Tips For Flying Frontier Airlines
- Pack light: you have to pay to check in a bag, so if you can pack light, the better. We usually travel with a backpack and have never paid extra for luggage.
- Seats are not included in the price of the ticket: it cost extra to reserve seats, however you don’t have to pay to reserve seats. I have never paid for seats and we’ve always gotten seats next to each other.
- Food: Frontier airlines does not offer any free snacks, food or drinks on their flights. You have to pay for everything. So, make sure to pack enough for your kids to eat. Take a water bottle and fill it up at the airport and you’re good to go.
On our most recent flight, the Frontier Airline pilots were nice enough to give the boys a mini flight lesson.
As you can see, flying with kids does not have to cost an arm and a let. Get on Frontier right away and book your next vacation!
Booking Your Trip – Tips & Tricks
How To Book Cheap Flights When You Travel
If you are looking to book the cheapest flights you can possibly find on the internet, then make sure to use Skyscanner when searching for flights. Don’t forget to download the Free Skyscanner App also which is very handy. This is how I was able to get $12.40 airfare from Los Angeles to London, as well as $9.40 airfare from London to Italy.
How To Book Affordable Accommodation When You Travel
When booking accommodation, TripAdvisor is the way to go because you can read reviews and see photos from other travelers to get a feel of where you will be staying. Other great sites to book hotels are HotelsCombined, Booking.com and Hotels.com. Don’t forget to check HomeAway and VRBO for house and villa rentals too. Perfect for when you travel with a large family, and also to save money when hotels are expensive. Another favorite of mine is BookVIP – they offer huge resort savings.
How To Book Activities When You Travel
My favorite website to search for activities, tours and especially skip the line tickets is Viator and Get Your Guide. This makes trip planning so much easier because you don’t have to search several sites as both websites have several options to choose from. Same also goes with TripAdvisor Attractions – you can search and book activities as well as read reviews.
How To Book Rental Cars When You Travel
Instead of checking every single website, I use RentalCars.com, Car Rental 8 and Skyscanner Car Rentals to find car rentals all over the world with just one click. If you plan to park at the airport, visit Airport Parking and make a reservation.
Why Travel Insurance Is a Must When You Travel
People book trips and forget the most important part, purchasing travel insurance. Because we travel often, I purchase our travel insurance through Allianz for a year at a time which means that we are covered for all trips within that year. Travel insurance will protect you and your family against theft, injury illness, flight cancellations and so much more. It is a MUST!
