Travel Cuts

Canadian Student Travel


Canadian students have long recognised that education goes beyond the classroom and that travel can be an intrinsic part of the educational process. Travel provides an opportunity for increased learning and helps to broaden cultural contact and enhance understanding. Over 40 years ago, Canadian students established a national travel bureau to provide for this need. This was the beginning of the Canadian Universities Travel Service (Travel C.U.T.S.).

As Canada’s only national student travel bureau, Travel CUTS provides unique student-oriented products and services to over 300,000 students each year.
