Majority of McGill travelers flying with Porter are missing out on potential savings

Posted on Friday, March 28, 2014

Porter.webAccording to data for 2013 provided by Porter Airlines – 86 per cent of McGill travelers are booking directly online with Porter Airlines rather than going through the McGill contract and potentially benefiting from the negotiated discounts. Porter offers McGill discounts on all destinations and fare types (excluding the deeply discounted fares).

Often the transaction fee of the Travel Management Company exceeded the discount accorded by Porter. To combat this effect, it is now possible to book online through VisionLink. This online booking tool allows access to the contracted rates of Porter Airlines (and other carriers) for a minimal ticketing fee of $15.00. Start booking now online – savings are expected to exceed the ticketing fee.

For personal service contact one of our three Travel Management Companies.

Important to note: You can pay for your airline tickets with your FOAPAL when booking through VisionLink or one of the University designated TMC’s. Send your feedback to travel.procurement@mcgill.ca.
