Resources, Tips & Tricks

  • Joining various travel Facebook groups are a great place to ask questions even during crazy times.
  • Elite Status (Aeroplan) - Consider upgrading your points cards to an Elite package if possible.
  • Tickets can take time to process when using points. So booking last minute with points (without an "Elite" Status) might not be available when you're ready to depart.
