Posted by Red Arrow on Aug 23, 2016 11:00:00 AM


Traveling can get pretty expensive, and can often be a great hassle. Too often saving money on travel means spending a lot of time, or traveling in unpleasant circumstances.

With Red Arrow, there are plenty of ways to save money on travel without sacrificing your comfort or time.

Don’t Fly

Flying can add up in terms of both money and time. As of January 2016. The average domestic flight costs  C$508. Don’t forget all the hassles that come with flying, such as getting through security, luggage fees and restrictions, limited carry on space, trying to find your gate and terminal before boarding starts.

If you can’t avoid flying, you can save on parking or cab fees by using the Red Arrow stop at Calgary International Airport.  And remember, Red Arrow also has handy stops right in the heart of downtown Calgary and downtown Edmonton!

Don’t Drive

Taking your own car on that next trip can seem like a good idea.  However, after you factor in the cost of gas and having to focus on the road for several hours, it makes more sense to relax and not be stressed about getting behind the wheel.

Renting a car can also be expensive and a hassle. Along with gas, you have to pay insurance and rental fees. However, if you need to travel to a location that Red Arrow service, never fear! Our partnership with Enterprise helps you save money on travel without preventing you from going where you need to go.

Make Your Reservations Early

Making your travel reservations in advance is a great way to save money. Ticket prices tend to increase as the departure date draws nearer, so the sooner you book, the more money you will save!

Save Money with Red Arrow Frequent Traveler Points and Express Packs

Red Arrow offers many ways for repeat passengers to save. Frequent travelers can gain points with each trip, which can be used to take an important trip or visit family and friends at the last minute. Student, Senior, and Adult Express Packs help travelers save hundreds on fares over time.

Take a Coach!

Taking a red arrow luxury coach has many benefits! With free wifi, complimentary snacks and plenty of laptop plugins, you can stay productive while you travel in style. If you’re traveling in a group, you can save money by chartering a coach instead of having everyone drive separately and deal with the hassle of gas and parking.  

Red Arrow is committed to making your travel experience a pleasant one. We hope these ways to save money on travel can help you make the most of your trip, and even look forward to traveling with us again soon.
