I have always loved Allegiant. How can you dislike an airline that has no qualms with being an ultra-low-cost carrier? They can get you from point A to point B for cheap. Often point B is a pretty sunny place that you want to go to and relax, so it makes it all that much better. They also serve many small airports that have no other service. Not to mention they are still rocking the maddog MD-80 (although fly on them soon — they are expecting to be rid of them by the end of this year).

I’m chatting about them today, as we have two tickets on hand that we want to give away to our readers (that’s you). There aren’t too many restrictions for the tickets and it isn’t hard to get signed up. Keep reading to find out how to get a good summer trip planned.

UPDATED: The contest has closed. The question was: How many departures did Allegiant have out of Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) in 2017? The Answer: 9298 departures from SFB in 2017. The winner is Ryan L, who guessed 9,424. Very amazed with how many people were close. Thanks for participating and look forward to next time!

HOW DO YOU WIN THE FREE TICKETS?

Here is what you need to answer: How many departures did Allegiant have out of Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) in 2017? Put your guess in the comments and the person with the closest answer wins. No Price is Right rules here, so going over is okay. If we end up with more than one person with the right answer, the first who guessed will win.

Not required, but it would be cool if you are also following us on Twitter and our Instagram accounts. While you are at it, be sure to follow @Allegiant. Without them, this would be a contest for a blank piece of paper. A huge thank you to Allegiant!

When filling out your comment, make sure to use a valid email address. I will not be doing anything with that address other than emailing the winner (and you will get comment notifications unless you unchecked the box). Only one comment per person. If you cheat (I have my ways), then you are banned from the contest and I might publicly shame you (Editor’s note – we endorse this). The contest will be closed at 8pm Pacific time on Monday, March 12th. I will lock down the comments, update the story with the answer, and let the celebration begin (well, at least for one person and their guest). Please only guess if you are pretty darn certain you can use these tickets — I don’t want them to go to waste.

WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU WIN?

I have two $200 vouchers (so $400 total) that you can use to have a good time flying on Allegiant. You win, I will email those to you and you need to book and travel by October 2, 2018. Since Allegiant worked so hard creating the small print on the bottom of their vouchers, I am going to just copy and paste:

This roundtrip ticket is in the form of a $200 voucher and must be used towards airfare or air + hotel packages booked by Allegiant and may be applied to convenience fees, baggage fees and taxes. Vouchers only valid when redeemed online at www.Allegiant.com or through the Reservation Center, at 702-505-8888. Voucher is not redeemable for cash and is valid toward one transaction; no change or credit will be issued and not valid towards any onboard purchases. Allegiant reserves the right to cancel, alter routes/times or suspend air service without notice. Not all air service is year round, so some destinations may not be available at time of booking. Voucher must be redeemed by October 2, 2018, and travel must be completed by October 2, 2018. Lost or stolen vouchers will not be replaced, and expiration date cannot be extended.

If you win, it would be cool to send over some pictures of whatever adventure you end up on. Good luck!
