Alumni travel programs

Boston University Alumni Travel/Traveling Terriers, along with university partners, our tour operators, and government authorities, continues to monitor the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. As this is a fluid situation, we or our partners will update alumni travelers who are booked on Boston University trips accordingly.

More information can be found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Boston University’s Coronavirus information website. BU’s site will be updated with information as it becomes available.

Our Alumni Traveling Program—known as the Traveling Terriers—offers a unique way to see the world and continue the tradition of education at the University. The program engages alumni, friends, and faculty of the University in educational and cultural tours throughout the world.

BU alumni receive a discounted Zipcar membership. Zipcar offers self-service access to cars by the hour or the day.

Zipcar is a car-sharing program, an alternative to car ownership that gives you wheels when you want them. Cars are self-service and on-demand (the keys are right inside the cars!).

Gas, insurance, maintenance, and 180 miles/day are included in every reservation. As a Zipcar member, you’ll have access to our vehicles 24/7.

Cars are located in easy-to-find parking spaces in neighborhoods throughout Boston, New York, San Francisco, Toronto, and Washington, DC. It’s owning a car without the headaches and costs. Find cars near you and learn more or join.
