Airline Monarch has changed over the last few years from a charter carrier into a ‘proper’ scheduled airline. It now has hubs at Leeds Bradford, Luton, Manchester, Birmingham and Gatwick and a wide range of destinations.
Monarch is a long term Tesco Clubcard partner at a 1 : 1.5 conversion rate. £10 of Clubcard vouchers got you £15 off a Monarch flight. This was not the greatest deal of all time.
Until May 24th, the conversion rate is improved to 1 : 2. £10 of Tesco vouchers will get you a £20 Monarch e-voucher.
There are good reasons to like this deal:
It offers genuine savings.
There are NO issues over availability. You are exchanging your Clubcard tokens for an e-voucher which can be used on ANY Monarch flight departing from the UK.
There is some small print:
You must spend your e-voucher by May 24th (they are emailed to you as soon as you redeem)
You must fly by July 16th
They are only valid for flights departing from the UK and are not valid against packages, flight and hotel deals etc
They CAN be used to pre-book extra leg room seats and meals as long as they are booked as part of the original flight booking
They CAN (it seems, although this is not specified) be used to cover all of the taxes and charges, so your flight can be genuinely ‘free’
The vouchers must be used in one transaction. You do not get any ‘change’ if the flight costs less than the voucher.
Codes are not transferable
