What Are Your Best Travel Tips?

Dear members, 


Our next membership-wide Webinar, to be held on Friday, June 24th, at 2pm EST (Toronto time), is titled Standby: Tips, tricks and tools for Employee Travel.


During this webinar, we’ll discuss the many aspects of travelling on our Employee passes, and hopefully shed some light on a number of misunderstood realities of Employee Travel. We’ll talk about the Priority Sequence, fees for Employee Travel, Commuting logistics, Travel partners, Zed Fare travel, and many other topics. We’ll also have a live Q&A session where participants can ask their questions, or contribute to the conversation.


We’re also hoping to include a segment which will feature some of the best tips, tricks and travel advice sent in by members from across our community.


Do you have some invaluable advice to share regarding Employee Travel, or words of wisdom which you think could benefit your colleagues far and wide? If so, please send them to us at, or via our Facebook Page at w


Hopefully this upcoming webinar will be useful to our members, junior and senior alike! As always, this webinar will be recorded and made available to all members for viewing at your leisure.
