Save 25% Off Alitalia Flights!

Update: No more translating from Italian!
You can now save 25% right on the Alitalia USA site!

Use the following “E-Coupon” code on the Alitalia USA site after selecting your flights: SPECIAL

JFK to Tel Aviv on most dates (like 12/02-12/10 for example) will be $763.80 round-trip with tax.
Miami to Tel Aviv (on 01/20-01/31 for example) will be $729.30 round-trip with tax.

You can save 25% on tickets booked on Alitalia.it.
The site is in Italian but you can just open the page using Google’s Chrome browser and it will translate the page to English. You can also have the english version of Alitalia.com open in a different browser to help you as the sites are very similar.

Use the following “E-Coupon” code on the Alitalia Italy site after selecting your flights: PROMO
Travel must be booked by 10/26 and begin between 11/05/12 and 03/27/13.
Blackout dates are 12/20/12-01/06/13.

For example searching for JFK-Tel Aviv on 12/02-12/10 the regular Alitalia site prices the ticket out at $1,018.40.  The Italian site prices it at €780.82 which is currently $1,017.38. With 25% off it is €589.37 which is currently $767.93.

Use a card like Sapphire Preferred to earn 2.14 miles per dollar and pay no foreign exchange fees.  Or you may want to use Freedom even though it has a 3% foreign exchange fee because this quarter you earn over 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar on airfare (up to $1,500).

Want to find cheap flights with flexible dates? You can even search for flights from your closest departure airports to anywhere in Europe! Just type in an airport and use the nearby airports functionality and increase the default mileage range and then select all of them!  You will want to uncheck “allow airport changes” if you don’t want it to search for flights that arrive in one city and leave from another.

Using that feature I found flights from JFK to Madrid from 11/21-11/29 for €360.54 after the 25% off or about $469 round-trip with tax.

Post a comment with other deals you find!

Read about using ITA Software here and use the following advanced routing code to limit the calendar search to only Alitalia flights: AZ+
Remember to use the code in both the departure and return fields.

Once you find a deal on ITA just plugin those dates onto the Alitalia site.

Mendy

How come DELTA direct flights to Italy do not appear?

Dan

@chaya:

Prezzo € 811,82
Servizio di vendita € 5,00
E-coupon € – 204,20
Totale € 612,62

@Mendy:
They only sell Alitalia flights on their site.
You may find some Alitalia coded Delta flights to Venice though.

yossi

Fetch

I tried a hundred times Dec 25-Jan 8 flexible +/- a few days. No luck! (I even tried Dan’s dates just to make sure it wasn’t the dates that I requested that made the code invalid.) Any help you can offer?

yael

i did use the italian site and it didnt work
what are the dates it is valid..not clear on your posting

KJ

Worked for me with the dates which Dan has mentioned. I think what you guys are doing is definitely wrong.

Dan

@KJ:
Finally at least someone else sees it…sheesh.

shmuel

i have tickets with Alitalia previously booked. it would be nice to get a retroactive discount.

David

I got it via Google Chrome and it translates to (poor) English. How can i book something that allows me to stay in Milan for a few days on the return flight beore arriving at JFK.

chaya

Jack

@Dan: just a small thing dan.

@Jack — Was this a one-time transfer that got you shut down or multiple transfers? If multiple, roughly how many?

Mani

abe

Sara

Does anyone know if it works originating in TLV? I want to bring my kids to New York for a simcha.

yossi

I found a flight to Israel for 75$ cheaper thru the Japan web site with the code “promojp”

yossi

@Sara: yes Sara it works..

Yiriel

this isnt working…not accepting that promo code for some reason!

Rots5

Thanks whyaich for all ur help and timely responses!
Of course thanks Dan for the great chap!!

Moshe

@yossi: @yossi: Have you booked for $367

Dovid

anyone manage to book recently or has it expired? Also what did you do? I tried detailed itinerary and couldnt get it to go through.

Sara

@yossi:
Thanks, I wonder does anyone know if this promo can be booked through a travel agent?

yankel

none of the codes code works on the us site!! not promo nor promojp nor special
help!

sruly

not working anymore for me

Anonymous

ITS OVER

Mordechai

None of the codes are working, not the US or the Italy one. If it worked for anyone please advise. Thank you!

Rikki

The E-Coupon is supposed to be an alpha-numeric code according to Alitalia Japan. Can we try again with the right code? Also Madrid wasn’t an option when choosing airports in Italy. I had to fly into Milan or Rome among many other avails. How do you book a ticket with lay-overs? I found it difficult to maneuver the website. Think we missed out on the deal again.

ALITAYA

the us code SPECIAL is working

Mani

If the original flight is before March 27, Can the return be after March 27 for the 25% reduction?

Sara

FRUSTRATION! I went thru all the steps, ready to pay and get the following message:
Please, look at the following warnings.
The payment service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again.
Is there a number to call Alitalia that can help?

Sara

@ALITAYA:

Did you actually book and pay ?

I went thru all the steps,the code worked. I got the dates and price. But ready to pay and get the following message:

“Please, look at the following warnings.
The payment service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again.”
Is there a number to call Alitalia that can help?

Sara

FOLLOW UP: Was able to book on the Italian site They gave me a reservation booking number which they will hold for 24 hrs. But they were unable to process the payment. I have to call
0665640. I guess that’s an Italy number. Would anyone know the country code and city code? could I call an Alitalia office in America?

Anonymous

same problem as sara any advice/

Geula

I am looking fo flt from nyc to tlv with stop in London. I cld tak rt from madrid to mancheste seperate. dates 1/16/13-1/3/13. Is this wih 25%?it doesnt work…

Frumie

I got the same message as Sara saying I have a reservation but they could not process the payment but then got an email from Alitalia confirming my tickets and payment. I checked my credit card and the payment went through.
I called the American customer service number just to verify and they confirmed that all was well.
So before anybody double books – check to make sure that the payment did not go through.
Hatzlocha to all and a huge thanks to Dan for posting!

EG

I spoke to the airline’s customer service this afternoon and was told that lots of people are experiencing difficulty buying tickets through the US website but the 25% off deal was still available at the time. I personally got the same message as Sara multiple times but after about 6 attempts I did get my ticket booked through the SPECIAL promo. $763 when I bought a ticket at 6:30 this evening. If you really want to buy tickets at this price, just keep on trying and IYH you will eventually succeed.

Sara

UPDATE:
I called the Alitalia tel. no. 800-223-5730.
It seems to have people to talk to at any time. I gave them my reservation code and wanted to pay with Sapphire VISA. they told me it was already charged to Amex. (which is good for 2x points, but I didn’t want to pay the conversion fee from Euros, since my booking was done on the Italian site.)
So they told me to book again using the VISA and then call them to cancel the earlier one, and thnakfully B”H it worked.
1701 Euros for 3 passengers @ about $1.30 per Euro = $737 per ticket.

Thank you Dan for your wonderful service.

Giselle

I think I will be able to do this – I’m so happy to have found your site Dan!

One question that niggles a little – the e-coupon code – SPECIAL … Do I need to produce something to ‘prove’ I have this coupon – which evidently I do not?!

Thanks with this I can save nearly $400 on the price – nice!

Kachnik

Alitalia is running a special FROM TLV to NYC and other NA destinations like Bos for $799 BUT you can also add the coupon “special” and get another 25% off. I just bought a ticket for $598.50 after the discount from TLV-NYC-TLV Dec13-Jan13
