Trip information.

Please confirm that the travel arrangements including travel dates and times, cities, hotel(s) and passenger name(s) are correct.

Note, spelling of passenger name(s) must be exactly as they appear in your travel document (e.g., passport, official government ID, proof of citizenship, etc.). Name corrections after payment/ticketing will result in additional charges or change fees to the passenger. Please notify CAA Travel of any special dietary requirements or special needs as soon as possible. CAA Travel will not be responsible for any omissions or errors that are not brought to our attention immediately.

Please note your credit card may be subject to pre-authorization/hold by some travel service providers at the time service is rendered and this may temporarily limit available credit card funds (e.g. hotel or car rental companies).

Entry requirements.

For travel wholly within Canada, Canadian government photo ID is required at airport check-in for each passenger.

For travel outside Canada, a valid Canadian passport is required. Your passport may be required to be valid for at least six months or more beyond the date of your expected return to Canada depending on your travel destination.

Tourist visas may also be required. Please refer to the Travel Report provided to you and visit travel.gc.ca for more or updated information.

If a parent/guardian is travelling alone with children under the age of 18, an affidavit may be required. Please visit travel.gc.ca/travelling/children/consent-letter for more information.

It is the travellers’ responsibility to ensure they have the appropriate travel documentation. Please note travel documentation is subject to change, therefore, entry to another country may be refused even if the required information and travel documents are complete. Passengers with a passport that is damaged may also be denied boarding by airlines and could be refused entry or exit at border crossings.

Health and medical requirements.

For travel wholly within Canada, this is not applicable.

For travel outside Canada, please refer to the Travel Report provided to you or visit phac-aspc.gc.ca

The Public Health Agency of Canada strongly recommends that your travel plans include contacting a travel medical clinic or physician six to eight weeks prior to departure. Based on your individual risk assessment, a health care professional can determine your need for immunizations and/or preventive medication and advise you on precautions to avoid disease. Travellers are reminded to ensure that their routine (childhood) immunizations (e.g. tetanus, diptheria, polio and measles) are up to date.

Standards of medical care may differ from those in Canada. Treatment may be expensive and payment in advance may be required. Travellers are advised to arrange for emergency medical travel insurance prior to departure. Prescription medication should be kept in the original container and packed in carry-on luggage.

The Public Health Agency of Canada also recommends that travellers who become sick or feel unwell on their return to Canada seek a medical assessment with their personal physician. Travellers should inform their physician that they have been travelling or living outside of Canada.

Air ticket terms and conditions.

Tickets are non-refundable. Tickets are valid on flights and dates shown on the ticket. If permitted by carrier, changes must be requested prior to original departure date & time. Changes may result in a higher fare and are also subject to a change penalty. Routing changes are not permitted. Unused tickets may not be used for future travel credit. Failure to travel on any portion of your itinerary will result in cancellation of all remaining flights.

Airport improvement fees (AIF).

Where applicable, are collected at the respective airports.

Airport check-in.

For flights to/from Canada, please check-in at least 2 hours prior to flight departure time.

For flights to/from outside Canada, please check-in at least 3 hours prior to flight departure time. Note, check-in counters close 1 hour prior to actual departure time and late arrivals may be denied boarding without compensation. Please re-confirm flight times prior to departure.

Travel protection.

CAA highly recommends that you purchase CAA Travel Insurance1 for protection against the high costs of an unexpected travel or medical emergency during your trip.

Professional fees.

CAA reserves the right to charge a non-refundable minimum fee for counselling or in the event of cancellation. Additional fees may apply to reservation changes and/or cancellations.
