Quick Thoughts

To get this discount, you have to enter the promo code before you start searching, rather than entering it while checking out. To do that, go to the home page on United’s website or app, click ‘Advanced Search’ and enter the promo code ‘VACAYABROAD’ in the ‘Promotions And Certificates’ field.

When searching for flights to eligible destinations within the promotion dates, you should see fares listed with ‘Special Offer’. Note that this promotion is only valid on Economy and Polaris (i.e. Business class) flights – Basic Economy and Premium Economy fares aren’t eligible.


While the $75 discount on round trip economy tickets are still more expensive than Basic Economy, it does mean that there’s a smaller premium for picking Economy. That extra cost might be worth it for the ability to choose your seat, make changes, etc. Be sure to click the ‘Compare Fare Types’ button though to get a comparison of the fares. For example, if you assumed that flights from Newark to London in Basic Economy wouldn’t get a free checked bag, you’d be wrong – you get both a free carry-on and free checked bag.

United fare comparison

Note that although this promotion is valid for travel from February 1 to May 17, flights have to be booked by January 26 and so you only have a couple of days to take advantage of this deal.
