Each country has its own set of requirements when it comes to Covid-19. We do recommend that you carefully read the Canadian travel advisories before you book along with the Covid-19 travel, testing and borders websites for all travel related advice. The government of Canada website is your best source of information:
In addition, it is important to find out about specific policies in airports and on planes. You need to read the documentation that each air carrier supplies you with.
Travel insurance is not mandatory but we highly recommend it to cover the unexpected. We recommend cancellation insurance for your trips in Quebec and a complete insurance package for all your trips outside Quebec including Covid-19 coverages. Send us a request for a quote or visit Manulife. Note that insurance companies have time limits as to when you can purchase coverage prior to departure.
If you do not have cancellation insurance and you cancel your trip, a non-refundable fee will be charged. See our terms and conditions for cancellation fees.
Yes you do and so do your kids. Some countries even require that your passport be valid for up to six months after your arrival. In addition, Passport Canada recommends it be valid beyond your scheduled return date. You could be stuck in another country if you do not abide by the rules. In addition to a passport, some countries require a visitor visa. For more information on visas and passports visit the travel advice and advisories section of the Government of Canada Website.
