Free Tickets to the 2016 Boston Globe Travel Show

Boston Globe Travel Show Discount Tickets 2016

The Boston Globe Travel Show is February 19-21, 2016 at The Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. Regular price tickets are $10 in advance online and $15 at the door. Kids 16 and under are free.

Every year I post promo codes for free tickets to The Boston Globe Travel Show. However, I haven’t really found too much for promo codes for free tickets, coupons, or deals this year. Luckily, I still have some to share with you though!

Last time I checked promo code WANDER16 will get you free tickets to The Boston Globe Travel Show for 2016. Not sure how long this promo code will last or how many tickets you can do, but hopefully it will work for you!

If you are interested in attending the Travel Show this year, you can also enter promo code 2TICS16 for two travel show tickets for $10 so B1G1 free essentially.

There’s also a Groupon for the Boston Globe Travel Show (ending soon!) which is a slightly worse deal than the deal mentioned above but a decent deal if the promo code doesn’t work for you.

There’s a few Groupon options available but it would break down to $6 per person for the travel show (must buy 2 or 4 tickets) and $19.50 per person for entry to the Craft Beer Pavilion (in pairs of 2 or 4) which includes free tickets to the travel show too. Regular price tickets to the Craft Beer Pavilion is $37.92 so a good amount of savings with the Groupon if you like beer.

For more information about The Boston Globe Travel Show head here and head here to purchase tickets.

Have you found any deals or promo codes for the 2016 Boston Globe Travel Show? Will you be attending this year?

*Please note that this post does contain an affiliate link for Groupon and I get a small thank you if you make a purchase through my link. Please see my disclosure policy if you have questions. Thanks!
