family travelWith the hustle and bustle of the holidays upon us, many thoughts turn to travel. In Alberta, the roads get busy, the weather gets bad, and the airports get jammed. This makes travel within Alberta both challenging and expensive. Wouldn’t it be nice if you our your family members could travel in comfort, peace, and tranquility so they can be relaxed and refreshed when visiting with family and friends? With Red Arrow, they can arrive completely rejuvenated — without breaking the bank.

The Challenges of Traveling During the Holidays

The thought of traveling in December usually conjures images of packed airlines, ridiculous airfares, lost luggage – and stress! To avoid traveling by air, many go by road. However, driving can be a struggle for college students who lack their own car, cannot afford an expensive rental, and may have to travel through dangerous dark, snow, and ice. In short, both air travel and driving yourself are stressful, costly, and risky.  For elderly adults, driving in snow or hazardous conditions might add too much stress to an already stressful time.

Traveling by Coach

Taking a coach provides affordable transit, especially with express packs that give you more travel for less. And with students and seniors in your family, you can even book the reservation for them and look forward to welcoming home your college student or making sure your kids get to see their grandparents this holiday season.

For example, on every Red Arrow coach, each seat has reclining, extra-wide leather seating and footrests. There’s also a galley stocked with complimentary snacks and drinks. Solo travelers who just want a little peace and quiet can book single seats – perfect for sitting back and watching the time pass by. Free onboard WiFi and power outlets help everyone stay connected on the road. Plus, each passenger is allowed two regular-sized suitcases and two carry-on bags – double what you can take on a plane!

Focus on What Really Matters

This holiday season, the best gift you can give and receive is time with your family and loved ones. With holiday travel costing both money, time, and energy, it can be tough justifying what it takes to get everyone together. However, traveling by Red Arrow can save your family big this holiday season and give your travelers the luxury and convenience they need. Book your holiday trip today by visiting Red Arrow.
