Vaccinated with nowhere to go? Don’t want to deal with rising airfare prices? You’re in luck: United Airlines is now offering its vaccinated MileagePlus members the chance to win a year of free flights.

Pent-up demand for travel has stayed constant throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. But now, this demand is hitting an inflection point as vaccine rollout continues globally and people are traveling again. As a result, leisure airfare with airlines like Southwest are nearing pre-pandemic prices again, CNBC reported.

If you’re interested in having your post-vaccination “revenge vacation” but deterred by these steadily increasing airfare costs, look into United’s new “Your Shot to Fly” sweepstakes, which was created to help “incentivize people to get their shot,” Scott Kirby, United’s CEO, said in the press release. You could win a free round trip or, even better, a year of free travel.
