Madrid was never really on our immediate radar, but that all changes when an airline makes a “mistake.” Though this wasn’t exactly your traditional mistake where an airline loads a very cheap fare by accident.

As I wrote about at the time, Alitalia published a coupon code that would take about $315 off any Alitalia flight. Using this little blunder by the airline, I was able to book Joann and myself on a little three day jaunt to Madrid for only $284.

Because I was able to get my ducks in a row quickly and act fast, I was able to capitalize on this awesome deal to Europe.  That’s the key to any hot-off-the-presses mistake fare. 

This was our first trip of 2013. We stayed for less than 72 hours but we did good work while there. We saw beautiful sights and ate amazing food. I like these long weekends trips because it gives you the taste of a destination without eating up my precious vacation days.

So please stay tuned for another trip report thanks to Alitalia and some #hustle!
