Reservations are required for all Companion Pass travel. You must book your flight prior to booking your designated Companion’s flight.
    
After booking your flight, visit the My Trips section of your account. Find your flight in the Upcoming section and click on Add Companion link. Click Continue to proceed to the purchase screen and review your Companion information. Click Purchase to complete your Companion’s flight reservation. A Companion’s reservation is not considered a purchased flight, and therefore, another Companion Pass reservation cannot be booked from it.
   
If you would like to book through a Customer Representative, call 1-800-248-4377 and notify him/her that a Companion Pass will be used.

Remember, to requalify for your Companion Pass you’ll need to fly 100 qualifying one-way flights or earn 110,000 Qualifying Points* in a calendar year.

*Companion Pass Qualifying Points are earned from your revenue flights booked through Southwest Airlines, your points earned by making purchases with a Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Credit Card, and your base points earned from Rapid Rewards partners. Purchased points and points earned from Rapid Rewards program enrollment, tier bonuses, flight bonuses, and partner bonuses (excluding points bonuses earned on the Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase) do not count toward Companion Pass.
