    Just returned from Greece via LAX. There were about 75 people going through customs. Luckily I have Global Entry - 8 scanners, no one in line. Took about a minute to let the scanner take my picture, then a customs official called my name and I was free to go. Global Entry cost me $100 for five years and includes domestic Pre Check. I've used it many times and it's terrific. Sign up at

    So many of our 2024 trips are filling up! If you see a trip you like, jump right in and make a deposit. Our Collette trips often fill before the deadline for guaranteed and/or discounted pricing. Before that deadline, you can cancel without ANY penalty and get all your monies back (even the travel insurance). The refund of travel insurance is an exclusive Collette benefit. Booking early also gets you the flights/seats you want and the chance to upgrade on those long flights!

    We have limited seats on the following 2024 trips - see links below:

    • Croatia and Its Islands, June, only 3 yacht cabins left

    A huge giant thank you to all the UC Retirees, friends and family that have made UC Travel such a success. When you participate in UC Retirees Travel trips, you help to support CUCRA (Council of University of California Retirees Associations), a systemwide consortium of volunteer representatives from all of the UC retiree associations. CUCRA represents retiree interests and advocates for retiree benefits in regular meetings with UC leadership.

    Our  trips have been so popular we sometimes have had to plan two trips to the same location because of overwhelming popularity.  We want to accommodate every single one of you! It is  a chance to meet up with old friends and meet new ones. Please if you see a a trip you would like to go on (CUCRA Travel) , sign up right away.  If you register before final payment is due you can confirm your space with just a deposit and optional travel insurance. We don’t want to disappoint any of our retirees friends or family by having them go on a waiting list. Our trips have become so popular that many  months prior to a trip you may be on a waiting list. You all have made UC Travel a fun group  to join and we are getting more travelers all the time.  We have gotten great feedback on all of our adventures.  Please book early and be part of the UC Travel adventures
