Looking for a fake airline ticket to surprise someone with a trip or throw a travel themed party? The good news is you don’t have to rely on your own design skills (unless you want to). There are a variety of boarding pass templates (some are even free) that you can customize within seconds or spend some time to put a very personal touch.

Free Boarding Pass Templates
- Boarding Pass Template for Word — this was first discovered by Le Chic Geek when she suprised her mom with a trip to Paris. The template a little less realistic and best suited for adding information and personal design.
- Music Airport’s Ticket-O-Matic automatically generates a first class boarding pass based on the name, date, time, and airline you put in. Downside, it’s also not super realistic, though it does include the airline’s logo.
