Now, if you compare us to other bus companies in Alberta, we know we're priced higher. But with our complimentary wifi, comfortable leather seats, single aisle seating, free snacks and refreshments, seat selection, and exceptional customer service - our passengers agree that it's worth it.

However, we know you look for ways to save money when you travel (because we do, too!). So, we've developed some ways for you to save when you travel with us by taking advantage of our promotional offers and discounted fares.

1. Frequent Traveller Program

If you sign up for an account with us, you will automatically start earning points every time you travel. With our Frequent Traveller Program, it doesn't take long to accumulate enough points to end up with a free trip. Our frequent travellers love our coaches and already think we're best way to travel and collecting points towards FREE TRIPS just makes it that much better. (If you have travelled with us before but don't have an account, please call us at 1-800-232-1958 and we'll set you up!)

2.  CAA and AMA Members Discounts

It’s easy for auto club members to save with Red Arrow. If you’re a member of the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA), the Alberta Automobile Association (AMA), or the American Automobile Association (AAA) you'll receive discounted fares when traveling between Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Fort McMurray and Lethbridge. Just provide your AMA number when booking your ticket or if we already have it, make sure you're logged in to your account when booking online.

3. Tell-A-Friend and Save 10% Off Your Fare

When you refer a friend to Red Arrow you both can save 10%! Have your friends book their trip over the phone and tell the Passenger Experience Representative that you sent them. Your friend will simply need to confirm your name and phone number. They’ll immediately save 10% on their fare, and you’ll be credited with a 10% discount towards your next trip! 

4. Daily Discounted Student Fares

Students can save money on Red Arrow every day of the week! This includes students aged 13-17, as well as college and university students who show a valid school ID.

Students love our complimentary WIFI and power outlets to keep those laptops and cellphones plugged in and connected. It's great for finishing off some homework or just relaxing and watching the onboard movie. And remember, there are FREE snacks and beverages in our fully stocked galley on every trip!

Travel Tip: Want to study undisturbed? Book one of our single seats in our privacy row. You'll sit alone while enjoying the many comforts of first-class travel on Red Arrow.

5. Express Packs for Seniors, Adults, and Students

Express Packs are one of the easiest ways to save money. Basically, you're buying your trips in bulk in advance and getting a great deal at the same time. Express packs are available in packs of five for seniors and students, and packs of 10 for adults. Whether you have a frequent commute or you’re looking for the perfect gift for the travel fanatic in your life, Express Packs give you more trips for less money! What’s not to love?

With all these great ways to save money with Red Arrow, you’ll still be collecting Frequent Traveler points towards a FREE TRIP on any Red Arrow route. Just remember to log in whenever you're booking online so that we can give you your points and your student or AMA discount if it's on file. As always, if you have any questions at any time, our friendly Passenger Experience Representatives are available to answer any and all of your questions at 1-800-232-1958.
