Travel Tips for Students

Flying back to school?

Here are 8 things you need to know!


1. Save time and money on student flights with an Air Canada student travel pass.

2. Stay connected on your WestJet flight!  With WestJet Connect, you can plug in to e-mail, social media and web texting while you’re in the air for as little as $4.99

3. Travelling with a laptop?   Remember to take your laptop out of its case when going through CATSA screening. 

4. Come early to EIA!  Labour Day weekend is one of our busiest times. Arrive early so you have time to enjoy over 61 shops and services.  Join EIA rewards for your chance to win monthly flight prizes, save on parking, get shopping and dining perks plus premium high-speed Wi-Fi. 

5. Got your bags packed?  Check your airline’s baggage policy and prepay any fees so you can breeze through check-in quickly with no surprises.  

6. Pack smart! CATSA has the perfect learning tool to kick off your school year travel.

7. Check out budget travel options with NewLeaf travel, with non-stop flights to Hamilton, Kamloops, Abbotsford, and Winnipeg.    

8. Bring government-issued ID.  Student ID can’t be used to board a plane.  Travelling internationally?  Check your documents to make sure you have student visas and other information you may need.
