By AMA Staff

You can now access AMA Travel’s expertise, insider info, exclusive deals and more with the click of a mouse or swipe of a tablet. Our travel counsellors are more than typical travel agents—they’re world adventurers, industry experts and savvy researchers who can scope out great deals just for you. On our new web portal,, you’ll be matched with a counsellor in your area who specializes in the type of trip you want. Planning a cruise? A cruise specialist can recommend ships, itineraries and excursions based on firsthand experience. If you’re going to Disney, we’ll connect you with Magic Kingdom guru to suggest the fastest roller coasters and tastiest food. Our experts have seen it all, done it all and can share it all with you. With AMA Travel, you can research trips, get insider tips and book your getaway—online, at an AMA centre or over the phone—with the same counsellor.

’Tis the season for giving to loved ones—but also to those less fortunate. There’s no question: It’s been a rough year in Alberta. Across our province, communities have endured economic challenges and natural disasters. That’s why AMA invites you to “Fill Our Fleet” and help make things brighter for everyone in the province. Drop off food and new toy donations to an AMA centre and we’ll fill up our fleet of vehicles to help local charities across Alberta. Last year, AMA members, employees and the public filled more than 70 pallets with donations for those in need. Drop off donations at any AMA centre between November 17 and December 12.

Founded in 1966, the Western Hockey League (WHL) has become one of the top training grounds for future NHLers. The 2016-17 season is in full swing as Alberta’s home teams power through tough opponents. Helmed by veteran iceman Brent Sutter, the Red Deer Rebels continue to claw their way up the central division. Over in Calgary, the Hitmen are looking to centre Radel Fazleev to lead the scoring charge again this season. AMA members save up to $12 on tickets: Rebels available at AMA’s Red Deer centre and Hitmen at Calgary centres.
