TAP Air Portugal has just launched a 3-day flash sale in which it’s offering a 99% discount on children’s airfares for travel within Europe. As you would expect, there are a couple of key terms and conditions to this promotion that should be noted but, on the whole, this looks like a great opportunity for families to save big on intra-Europe bookings.

Key Terms & Conditions

  • The promotion runs until 23:59 on 26 September 2020 (GMT +1)
  • Travel Dates: 23 October 2020 to 15 March 2021
  • Blackout Dates: 26 December 2020 to 7 January 2021
  • Save 99% on fares for children aged 11 and under
  • The discount applies to the base fare and the carrier surcharge (YQ)
  • Use Promo Code: KIDS
  • The promotion is valid for all TAP Air Portugal flights within Europe with the exception of internal flights (flights within a single country).
  • The promotion is valid for all fares
  • 1 free booking change allowed*

*See promotion page for detailed terms and conditions

How To Use The Code

Head to the TAP airfare search page, populate the search boxes in the usual manner, and then scroll down the page where you’ll find the box giving you the option to add a promotion code (the text box for the code opens up when you place a checkmark in the small box).

Note: Don’t attempt to add the KIDS code to your airfare search as a “voucher” as that will just result in you getting an error message.

You’ll know that the promo code has been successfully applied as the website will confirm as much when you price-up a fare:

Note: When searching for fares the discount will not apply until after you have selected all the flights for your trip.

Quick Thoughts

The only small negative aspect of this promotion is that TAP defines a child as a person aged 11 years or younger (it would have been nice to see 12 to 15-year-olds included too but TAP classifies them as “young adults”). Apart from that, this looks like a pretty generous offer.

TAP has included its Basic Economy and flexible Business Class fares in this sale (which is surprising) so the clain that all fares qualify for this deal is genuine and it means that this promotion should work for all budgets.

Be aware that TAP appears to be offering a less generous cancellation/refund/voucher policy than a lot of other airlines so make sure that you understand what it is that you’re booking (and what you’re signing up to) before making any bookings (link to TAP’s current cancellation/refund policy).

Bottom Line

TAP Air Portugal is currently running a sale in which it is offering a 99% discount on all intra-Europe fares (with the exception of fares for travel wholly within on country) for children aged 11 and under. This sale will end at 23:59 on 26 September 2020 (GMT +1) so you have just under 3 days in which to make plans and book. Good luck!
