Over the past couple of years, TAP Air Portugal has been one of the more generous airlines when it comes to offering discount codes for a variety of routes and destinations but, unsurprisingly, these codes haven’t been around of late. Now, however, it looks like TAP is ready to coax people back into the air with a new 7-day sale in which it’s offering 15% off Busines Class and Economy Class fares on numerous routes to/from/within Europe.
Get 15% Off TAP Air Portugal Flights
Here’s what you need to know:
- The discount code is MULTI15. Clicking the code will lead you to a search page in which the code is pre-applied. You can also choose to visit the FlyTAP webpage and enter the code manually.
- The code will not work for TAP’s ‘Discount’ Economy Class (hand baggage only fares) ot ‘Top Executive’ bookings (flexible Business Class) but is valid for all other classes of travel.
- The code is valid for bookings made on or before 18 August 2020 (the code will cease to work at after 23:59 GMT+1 on 18 August).
- Travel through 31 March 2021
- Blackout dates 17 December 2020 – 10 January 2021
One of the big selling points for TAP is that it often offers very good Business Class fares across the Atlantic and, when such deals are being promoted, TAP also offers very good one-way fares too (usually half the price of a roundtrip fare).
This can be particularly useful to flyers who only have enough miles/points for a one-way award and who don’t want to pay the outrageous prices that most legacy airlines charge for long-haul one-way fares.
How To Use The Code
You can either follow the direct Promo Code link to the TAP website (doing so will lead you to a search page where the code is already loaded) or you can choose to visit TAP’s promotion page from where clicking on the “MULTI15” link will take you to the search page with the promo code prepopulated.
If you decide to manually enter the code, this is how to go about it.
Head to the TAP airfare search page (see the screenshot below).
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 MULTI15 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.
Book Amazing Deals
TAP isn’t just great at offering discount codes, it’s also pretty great at offering exceptionally good Business Class fares…and there are quite a few such fares available to book right now for travel into 2021.
If you’re originating in the US, for example, you can currently book New York – Lisbon in Business Class for under $1,000 roundtrip courtesy of this promotion.
If you’re originating in Europe, similarly great deals can be found…even from expensive cities like London. Here’s an example of a 5-day trip to New York for Valentine’s weekend where a roundtrip Business Class fare costs just $1,234:
Furthermore, if you choose not to terminate your journey in Portugal, you can still schedule a layover of up to 5 days in Lisbon or Porto without any penalty fees.
Note: the two examples given above are just the tip of the iceberg – TAP Air Portugal is offering dozens of great deals right now.
Make sure you get an even better deal out of whatever trips you book by using a credit card that gives you a good return on your travel spending and, preferably, one that also comes with good travel protections (just in case!)
The Platinum Card from American Express and the Business Platinum Card from American Express both earn 5 points/dollar for spending made directly with airlines while the Chase Sapphire Reserve card earns 3 points/dollar for just about all travel spending and, very importantly, all three of these cards offer good trip delay, interruption, and cancellation protections.
The Amex Green Card earns 3 points/dollar for just about all travel spending but doesn’t offer the same level of protection as the Platinum Card or the Sapphire Reserve, and although the Citi Prestige Card matches the Platinum Card with its earnings of 5 points/dollar on spending made directly with airlines, the fact that it offers no travel protections at all makes it a considerably less appealing option.
TAP Air Portugal’s latest discount code opens up some truly fantastic deals on various routes that the airline operates. The promotion only runs for 7 days but with the deal available for travel into 2021 this is still a very tempting proposition.
Let me know if you spot any good deals.
