Southwest Airlines has teamed up with 27 Las Vegas hotels to offer an incentive for those on the fence with this year’s travel plans.
The deal works like this: Book a flight and a room at one of the 27 hotels and a second person flies for free. Stay three nights at your chosen hotel and receive a fourth night free.
The hotels include the Bellagio, Wynn, Caesars Palace, Palms and Planet Hollywood.
The deal must be booked by 4 p.m. Las Vegas time on Aug. 10 with travel dates between Aug. 17 and Jan. 7.
As always, some restrictions do apply. Travel must be booked five days in advance and is not valid with Friday and Sunday travel. Blackout dates include Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving week and the week of Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Travel from some cities does not apply.
For the first available day of travel with the deal out of Chicago’s Midway Airport, prices range from $212 at the Plaza Hotel to $354 at the Bellagio, per person, for a four-night stay. For travel from a city closer to Las Vegas, like Phoenix, prices run $113 to $255 a person during the first available week of travel.
