Did you know that you can connect via Facebook with fellow travelers before your trip begins?  

· Chat with travel companions and start making new friends
· Share the excitement about your upcoming tour
· Learn where other participants are from, and where else they’ve been
· Share travel tips and advice
· Start a discussion about what to pack
 
It’s simple! Follow this link http://on.fb.me/18bD4Bt, or click on the My Travel Mates button on Gate 1’s Facebook page. You will need to know your tour name and departure date. If you’re the first to arrive, you can create and share the group, and will be notified when other tour members join.
 
When you return from your tour and jet lag is a distant memory, overshadowed by your recollection of all the amazing sites you visited and people you met, don’t forget that you can reconnect with your travel companions via Facebook. Share pictures and videos, reminisce about your experiences, and start planning your next Gate 1 tour together!
This is also the content I am using for Connections, but the newsletter will also touch on the Community Forums.
 
This Facebook feature is not accessible via a mobile device.  Please join your group from a desktop.

Like the poster above, our tour does not appear: "9 Day Israel, a Journey for the Believer" on Feb. 7, 2014. It would be great if, unlike the previous event, you can create the page now and not after the group has already left. Thanks!

Hi Richard, I was able to get to the event using my account. I would make sure that your internet settings allow pop ups- sometimes this blocks the function from working. Also, make sure that all of the fields are filled in correctly as well!

If you still cannot get on please post back and I would be happy to see what we can...

No, still does not work - nothing will appear in the date field. I also disabled pop-ups and tried what you posted here, but links are not active.

Hi Richard- please try to past the following link into your browser and see if that works directly. Also, have you tried using a different browser than your default? I am able to access the site using Internet Explorer 11.

Vegas for Now- unfortunately that date is not showing up and we have forwarded the issue to our IT department- it is because of a technical issue. Hopefully the issue is resolved before your departure but we are unfortunately not able to guaraantee that it will be. If we hear that it has been resolved I will certainly post and let you know.

Safe travels and we hope you enjoy your trip!

I was able to use this tool but it took me to a generic page for all tours for all dates just titled Ecuador April 5th. I selected April 10th, Peru.

Hello...! Not sure, but does this group cover the 11 Day Enchanting Italy tour leaving May 4th? After inputting the details of my trip, I am brought to this page:

https://www.facebook.com/events/221361624711474

Not sure if this is right, because the date seems to cover April 24 - May 16 and says it covers 22 Days in Spain...

Explosia,

You did it correctly, and this covers your tour!

At first it appears confusing, but the explanation is that some tours are embedded within other tours, and My Travel Mates groups these together.  In your case, the 22 day Spain and Italy tour that you see listed begins April 24, tours Spain, flies to Italy, and concludes the tour as part of your 11 day tour.  Therefore, some of the travelers that you will meet the first day of your journey will have already been together for the preceding 11 days in Spain.

My next trip is similar.  We are doing Israel and Jordan in May.  Starting in Israel, some will go on to Jordan, some stop at one point in Israel, and some go further in Israel only (to Eliat.)  Some also only do the Jordan part of the tour.  Therefore, the My Travel Mates for this case covers four tours - two Israel, one Jordan, and one Israel and Jordan (ours.)
