A student who is passionate about the University will get to know a lot more about the institution in the process of booking their own tour.
University of Queensland students can book their own tours with online operators like Expedia, TripAdvisor and Kayak.
They can also book online with the tour operator in the event they don’t know them personally.
While the majority of students do their research online, there is one area where students are still limited by their local university.
Students are currently unable to book their travel through Expedia because of a rule against booking for the school year.
But there are ways around that, including using Expedia’s online booking tool.
University students can access their university’s booking information in the Expedia booking interface.
They’ll be able to select the time and date of their trip, which they can then click on the link in the booking window to book.
If the student selects “go to the University for your visit”, the tour company will be able tell them the time, date and destination.
Students will be given a number, the day of the week, and a booking address.
They will then be directed to the next step, which will be the next stage in the journey.
Once the tour is booked, the student will then have to click on “check-in” to make their reservation.
If they have already booked a trip through Expander, they’ll be redirected to the Expander app, where they can check in their information and book their tour.
“The University of New South Wales has an excellent online booking system,” Dr D’Angelo said.
“It’s a bit more complicated than some universities, but you’ll be fine.”
Students who have booked a student tour through Expedit will be directed by the app to an “app-based booking” system.
“If you click on that link, it will redirect you to the same page you used to book your travel, so you’ll see all the information you need to do the booking,” Dr Mee said.
She said the app-based system was a better option for those with more experience with Expedit.
“There’s a lot of flexibility there, you can book through an app, you’re going to see the booking details, it’ll give you an estimate of how much you’ll pay for the trip and it’ll show you a breakdown of the dates you’ll need to check-in for,” she said.
Dr D’angelo said while students were able to book through Expedite, it was not the best option for the average student.
“You want to book something like Expedit, and if you book through that, there’s a ton of flexibility to what you can do, and the booking options are pretty good, too,” she added.
Students should be aware that their trip will not be booked through Expedited if they do not book a student travel pass.
“Students have to pay a $35 annual student travel fee to use the Expedited system,” she advised.
Dr Mee explained that students would need to have a student pass to use Expedit or Expedit Express.
“I’ve seen students book Expedit with a student trip pass, and that’s fine, but that’s not really the best way to go about it,” she explained.
“That’s why the student travel passes are important.
Students should have a way to ensure that their student travel is not booked through the Expedit system.”
Dr Mie said she was confident that students could book their trip through the university’s travel app.
“We have a really good student travel app, so I’m confident that it’s a good solution for many students,” she told ABC News.
“With Expedit and Expedit for Business, we have that same user interface, but we’re actually using the Expedited system.”
A student will be redirected from Expediate to the university app if they are unable to use that system.
The app is available in the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
A student who cannot use the app will need to call Expedit on 1300 688 723.
