AMA is advocating on your behalf for fairness in advertising, fair pricing and taxation, personal security and protection for travel industry failures.
Domestic and international travel reminders
- Clean out your wallet before you leave. Take only essential cards with you.
- Don't carry large quantities of cash. Traveller's cheques provide security and can be replaced if lost or stolen.
- Keep your airline tickets in a secure location, separate from your original passport.
- Take business cards with you from your hotel. It makes it easier to tell a taxi driver where you are staying.
- Be cautious about people trying to divert your attention – this could be a scheme to steal your possessions.
- Wear a money belt under your clothes when carrying traveller's cheques and cash, or other valuable documents.Carry a purse or wallet with enough cash to meet your daily needs.
- Transfer cash from your money belt to pockets or wallet in your hotel room or washroom.
- Use only authorized hotel or airport taxis. Understand your total fare before you depart. Is it metered? Flat rate? Per person?
- Are you planning on shopping? Make sure you know which products are allowed into Canada and which will have to be left at the border. Visit Health Canada to see a list of banned and regulated products.
