Two can fly for just $11 with two-day nationwide Frontier sale … with a catch

[Mommy Points] Two can fly for just $11 with two-day nationwide Frontier sale ? with a catch: Editor?s note: As the travel industry restarts following COVID-19 shutdowns, TPG suggests that you talk to your doctor, follow health officials? guidance and research local travel restrictions before booking that next trip. We will be here to help you prepare, whether it is for next month or next year.
Frontier Airlines has apparently decided that now is the time to test whether a low enough price is enough to entice travelers to return to the skies. The low-cost airline is offering $11 one-way nationwide flights across a variety of routes — but wait, there’s more. Believe it or not, that $11 price gets you not one ticket, but actually two tickets one-way tickets. The catch? You need to purchase a round-trip journey and have Frontier’s Discount Den membership.
But assuming those aren’t barriers to your situation, this is about as cheap as paid air travel will ever get. (And yes, you, your friend and all kids 2 and up will need to pack your mask to board your next Frontier flight.)

Should I book travel now?
There is a risk with booking travel now, even if you are booking for several months out, since there is no way to guarantee when it will be 100% safe to travel again. The CDC states that “staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from getting sick.” While we hope things will return to normal quickly, there has been a surge in COVID-19 cases in some parts of the U.S.
While all states have at least partially reopened, several have a mandatory 14-day quarantine order in effect. If you’re booking this deal, know that many states, such as New York and New Jersey have mandatory quarantines for travelers entering from high-risk states, including California. Massachusets is asking travelers to quarantine as well. Florida is also requiring quarantine for those entering from the New York tri-state area.

AK, AL, AR, AZ, CA, DE, FL, GA, IA, ID, IN, KS, LA, MD, MO, MS, MT, NC, ND, NE, NM, NV, OH, OK, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WI.
