Travel must occur between January 13, 2019, and March 28, 2019 and is only available on United-operated flights (not partners or codeshares). It also must be a on a round-trip or multi-city basis. Sadly, the discount only applies to economy class awards and not business/Polaris class. Furthermore, the discount is only valid on saver awards (not the pricier everyday awards).
United charges for awards on a one-way basis. The good news is that you can mix this sale with a different return or multi-city trip. For example, you can book a discounted economy class award in one direction and a business class ticket on the return.
Finally, note that if you have already issued an award within this date range and find your flight now on sale, you can request a refund in miles. But, the space must still be bookable (even though you already have it) and you will have to pay a change fee.
Book by 11:59PM CST on November 26, 2018 to take advantage of this promo. Fine print here.
Winter is a great time to go to Europe. Not as good as autumn, but I love the crisp days and low sun. And you’ll likely find a plane that isn’t full.
Will you take advantage of this sale?
