The travel landscape has changed dramatically over the last year and there are a lot of new rules and regulations to keep in mind. Stay up-to-date and knowledgable with our post-pandemic travel tips.

After a long wait, the return to travel is exhilarating! Many travellers are feeling inspired with ideas for their first post-pandemic trip, and with so many dreamy travel options, selecting a destination is easier said than done. Maybe it’s time to carry through with a previously cancelled vacation or even visit a new place you discovered binge watching different travel shows? From planning to booking to hopping on a plane again, it can all feel a bit overwhelming.

If you’re feeling a bit out of practice regarding travel planning, here’s a checklist to help you safely plan for Canada-wide travel and future global adventures.

Canadian Passports with Boarding Tickets.
  • Create a spending budget, including meals, attractions, shopping, etc.

  • Book your accommodation and mode of transportation: your flight, train or a rental car.

  • Buy any advance tickets for events or attractions.

  • Get records of your vaccinations, including dates.

  • Arrange for a neighbour, friend or family member to pick up your mail and check on your house.

  • Buy any gear and supplies you’ll need for the trip, keeping in mind that due to demand, some items may not be readily available.

  • Get travel insurance (yes, even if you’re travelling in Canada!). While there are interprovincial agreements in place to provide healthcare for Canadians outside of their home province, the agreements may not cover the full cost of all medical emergencies. Did you know kids can get free travel insurance if travelling with parents? New Covid-19 Insurance is available for out of Country destination. If you do get Covid-19 while you are travelling your medical insurance is covered.

  • Familiarize yourself with airport protocols by checking directly with the airport you are flying out of. COVID-19 restrictions continue to evolve so things could change quickly.

Once you have all this tips for post-pandemic travel crossed off your list, it’s time to enjoy your adventure!
