CAA Travel Tips

Plan Ahead

Do some homework so you can spend your holiday enjoying yourself instead of searching for accommodations and directions. Plan your route with maps and this guide, available free through Travel Manitoba and at CAA locations.

 

Be "Reserved."

Avoid disappointment by making advance reservations for hotels, attractions and events, and keep a list of these telephone numbers handy for quick changes. If changes are made, check if the original booking has a cancellation penalty. Use toll-free numbers when booking and have a calendar and credit card at hand.

 

Make a List

Leave a list of traveller's cheques and credit card numbers with relatives in case of loss or theft.

 

Border Crossing?

If you're travelling out of your home province or state, protect yourself against extra medical expenses with travel health insurance and make sure you have ample medication.

 

If your Flying

Be careful with you luggage. Use your business address on luggage tags so you don't advertise an empty house. Lock your luggage and never leave it unattended.

While you're away...

 

Don't Flash Your Cash

Carry as little as possible. Pay be credit card or traveller's cheques for large expenses. Buy traveller's cheques in small denominations and know how to replace them. Divide your cash among family members and consider wearing a money belt.

 

Be Smart at Your Hotel

Make sure door locks work properly and use the dead bolt. Know where the fire and emergency exits are located. Don't open your door to any strangers. Verify hotel staff with a call to the front desk before giving access to your room.

 

Stash Your Cash

If you must travel with large amounts of cash, jewelry or expensive sports or camera equipment, ask hotel staff for a safe deposit box outside your room.

 

Dining out?

Reservations are important at most major city restaurants.

 

Show Them Who You Are

Carry photo ID with you at all times.

 

If You're Driving, Don't Forget Common Sense Safety to Protect Your Valuables

 Lock your doors, use an anti-theft device, close all windows, lock valuables in the trunk or stow them out of sight. Park in well-lit areas. Never leave keys in ignition or spare keys in the car.
