Trip Pricing
Ever wonder how the Travel team prices our travel adventures?

Each trip is based on the following criteria to ensure that our customers pay a reasonable price as well as receiving an enjoyable and interesting experience: 

  • Price that the venue charges us per person. This can vary depending on the venue 

  • Cost of any meal if included in the trip.

  • Price of the bus (whether it is a School Bus or a Residence’s bus).  The cost of chartering a school bus has risen over the past year due to gas and drivers costs. The charge is also based on the mileage to the destination or venue.

  • Cost of printing flyers and other administration costs.

If anyone has any further questions with regard to the costing of our trips, please contact John Kern at: jh.kern@rogers.com

Kanata Seniors Council Travel News

With a few more folks joining the Kanata Seniors Council Travel Team in the past few months, we now have more hands on board to cover the workload.  More live theatre, music, museum and gallery visits are on the agenda, as well as summer jaunts to local small town events.   The City of Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley have so much to offer and we are bursting with ideas we hope you’ll love. From Celtfest in Almonte to a Summer Solstice Celebration in Vincent Massey Park, we’re working hard to offer something fun for everyone.

Come and join us for our excursions to our local area.
