TAP Air Portugal has once again come up with a 10% discount code for Traveling For Miles readers looking to save some cash on transatlantic and intra-European Business Class and Economy Class fares.
With all fares other than “discount” (hand baggage only fares) qualifying for the 10% saving this may be a good opportunity to make some of TAP’s already good fares even better.
One of the big selling points for TAP is that it often offers very good Business Class fares across the Atlantic (and, earlier this year, between Europe and South America) 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 the TAP airfare search page and enter the code manually from there.
I suggest you give the main TAP homepage a wide berth as it isn’t particularly user-friendly when it comes to applying a discount code so the options listed above are the better way to go.
If you decide to manually enter in 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 TRA10FLY2909 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:
The TAP discount code may appear to be limited to users in the US, UK, and Brazil but, even if you’re not based in one of these countries, anecdotal evidence suggests that the only real restriction is that you have to use the US/UK/Brazilian TAP Air Portugal websites.
Readers have confirmed that there’s no requirement to offer up a US, UK, or Brazilian address when making your booking so, effectively, this promotion should work wherever you are in the world.
If anyone makes good use of this code it would be great to know (in the comments section) as, if this promo goes well, TFM will (hopefully) be able to get a few more codes like this to share with the readership.
