I was happy to see that GoJumpOn's first deal to Las Vegas last month was a success. They managed to fill up a 737 charter plane and offer a cheaper flight to Vegas than the major airlines.
I was also curious to see what they were going to offer next, and it looks like it's a flight to Kelowna over May Long weekend, with a wine tour included in the price of the flight.
The amazing thing is that even *without* the wine tour thrown in, the flight is 50% cheaper than WestJet or Air Canada's May long weekend fares at the moment. And it's about 25% cheaper than the usual bottom price for a weekend flight to Kelowna.
It looks to me like the included wine tours are operated by Distinctly Kelowna Tours, because when you Google the names of the tours below, that's who shows up. They seem to get great reviews on TripAdvisor.
Looking at the different wine tours you can choose from, they appear to have a value of about $80 to $90/person. So if the wine tour has value to you, you're basically getting the flight to Kelowna for $100 roundtrip after taxes and fees over May long weekend!
To get the deal for $198, you need to either sign up and get a Jump Code for $50 off, or use someone else's Jump Code and get $50 off. My Jump Code is CM284 if anyone wants to use it.
Just to note, it looks like this deal has already 'Jumped', meaning enough people have committed to the deal for the flight to be a guaranteed go.
This deal has now sold out, as the 737 is full. I hope everyone has a great time in Kelowna!
