Looks like this is a big year in travel birthdays, or anniversaries if you think that’s a little classier. (Birthday cake is usually better though, so I’ll stick with that.)

Travel CUTS turns 40 this year, and doesn’t have a single grey hair. They’ve probably managed to stay young and cool through their 50 locations near colleges and universities in Canada and the US.

Do you know what the CUTS stands for? Because they’re not just shouting at you. It’s the Canadian University Travel Services.

Travel CUTS is co-owned by the Canadian Federation of Students and
the Canadian Student Horizons Group. Student ownership means that
the money CUTS earns helps to fund new and innovative student products
and services.

Celebrate the big 4-0 with one of CUTS’ deals on a Contiki tour, rail pass or other student travel discounts

100_Days_DownunderHostelling International is doing lots to celebrate their 100th birthday, including a contest to offer you 100 Days Down Under. The winner will get a trip to Australia, including 100 free nights in YHAs across the country.

And yes, Australia has really good birthday cake, too.



  1. Great lead on the 100 days in Australia contest. Thanks!

  2. [b]Definately will not go to Vilamoura anymore, 6 Hour rounds of Golf and 4.5 Euros for a beer , we will stay clear of the Vilamoura golf courses this year, and the so called free shuttle bus turns up if you are lucky.[/b]
