If Your Name Is Orlando, You Can Fly to Florida for Free This Month

If you happen to be named after the home of Disney World, you’re eligible for a $250 voucher on Frontier Airlines. The catch is, you can only fly to — you guessed it — Orlando.

As part of a promotion with Visit Orlando, Frontier Airlines is offering anyone with the first or last name of Orlando a travel voucher for $250 to Orlando International Airport. Travel dates are valid between October 13 and October 20, and applicants must fill out an online form and claim the voucher by October 5.

The goal of the promotion isn’t just to encourage people named Orlando to visit their namesake city, but to boost tourism in this part of Florida. To incentivize the vast majority of non-Orlandos to visit, Frontier has also launched a sale on flights to the city with one-way fares as low as $39.

You might be tempted to lie your way to a free voucher, but unfortunately that won’t be possible. Once you complete the form, Frontier will be in touch with you to confirm your name, and if you lied, that’s going to be pretty embarrassing. After confirmation, you’ll be sent a voucher.

The promotion is similar to Frontier’s Green Week initiative last year, which was aimed at people with the last name “Green” or “Greene.”
