What CAA Members need to know about COVID-19.
COVID-19 continues to cause concern among travellers and the general public.
This is an evolving situation and your safety continues to be of utmost importance to us.
Important information to consider:
- Global Affairs Canada has advised all travellers to avoid non-essential travel outside of Canada until further notice. Canadians abroad have been urged to return as soon as possible. Travel advice and advisories are updated regularly.
- Many countries have put in place travel or border restrictions and other measures such as movement restrictions and quarantines.
- Airlines have cancelled flights and new restrictions may be imposed with little warning.
- Travel supply companies have advised us that paperwork related to refunds may take time to be issued. We require the paperwork from your travel supply companies to review a claim.
We are experiencing a very high volume of inquiries related to the impacts of COVID-19. We ask for your understanding and patience. We are currently focusing on those who are currently travelling and require medical treatment, as well as those who are travelling within the next 30 days. We have compiled some of the most commonly asked questions below to help serve you better.
For COVID-19 related trip cancellation and interruption claims:
Step 1: Contact your travel supplier immediately to cancel your travel plans.
Step 2: Have your travel supplier send confirmation that the travel plans were cancelled, including cancellation and refund policy.
Step 3: To initiate a claim, visit CAA Assistance.
