UBC Travel Smart

UBC students who travel on university business such as to a conference or as part of a field project might be eligible to use the Travel at UBC program that provides university discount rates.


During registration for the online booking engine (requires UBC credentials), please enter "Student" in the field labeled "Position/Title" and indicate your research unit/department/faculty in the appropriate field. After log in to the system you can search for travel options and pricing.

What can be booked?

The online booking system is very powerful for travel within Canada or to and from the US. Users can easily locate the least expensive fare as the system provides a variety of options including seat sales, internet fares and UBC discounts where available.


  • Only travel that is for UBC related activities is eligible
  • You can only book travel for yourself as the traveller. This program cannot be used to book flights for family members or friends.
