The bags are packed, the kids are in the backseat and you’ve got a full tank of gas. It’s time to hit the open road in search of new adventures and lasting memories. Or perhaps you’re hopping on a plane and going to a far away place.
Whatever your destination, vacations are one of life’s great enjoyments. Before you go, take a minute to make sure you are well prepared for your journey. A trip to an AMA centre can meet all your needs, from travel insurance to road maps. This is your time to relax, so leave the rest to us.
For your property
If you are touring the country in an RV for your vacation, be sure your home on wheels is properly insured. AMA offers RV insurance to protect your home away from home. RV insurance provides coverage if your vacation trailer is damaged or if you are involved in a collision. And if something should go wrong, RV insurance can help your trip continue uninterrupted. If your RV is damaged or destroyed while on vacation, your insurance may reimburse you for a portion of the extra costs you incur, so you can keep on trekking. You also require liability insurance when you are driving your RV on the highway. Liability insurance is normally provided by your auto insurer. Contact us to see if you are eligible for liability insurance.
Or perhaps your vacation involves slipping away to a cottage on the lake. If you have a property that you retreat to on weekends and for vacations, you may want to consider AMA’s vacation home insurance. Your regular home insurance does not cover your vacation home or its permanent contents. If you already insure your primary residence through AMA, you may be able to insure your vacation home with AMA as well.
And while you’re away enjoying your vacation, be sure your home is protected with AMA’s home insurance. AMA can provide insurance for your house, condo, mobile home or if you are renting. Get an online home insurance quote today!
For your health
No one plans on getting sick or injured while on vacation. An unexpected illness or injury can derail vacation plans and be a huge hit to your wallet if you have to pay out-of-pocket for health care. AMA’s emergency travel medical insurance protects you from the unknown.
Are you protected?
Visiting new locations and enjoying new adventures brings with it great excitement, but also added risk. If you unintentionally injure someone or damage someone else’s property while on vacation, you could find yourself on the receiving end of a lawsuit.
Particularly if you enjoy visiting the United States, where the claims climate is a greater concern than in Canada, you may want to consider personal umbrella liability insurance. You may think the liability insurance that comes with your home or auto insurance would cover you in such an event, but that’s not necessarily true. Personal umbrella liability insurance gives you that added level of protection against risks that aren’t covered under your other insurance policies and can give you an extra level of protection for risks that are covered. Contact us for more information.
An accident can happen at any time – even while you’re on vacation. Protect your family from the financial impact of an accident with AMA's personal accident insurance. It is also an affordable way to protect you and your family in many travel-related circumstances.
If you are a thrill seeker and enjoy vacations that involve a degree of risk, such as skydiving or mountain climbing, protecting yourself and your family is even more important. Personalaccident insurance provides funds in the event of a fatal accident or an accident that results in the loss of a limb or eyesight. Contact us for more information.
Everyone enjoys saving money, especially while on vacation and carrying your AMA membership card in your wallet can mean big savings for you and your family. AMA’s Show Your Card & Save® program is an easy-to-use program that gives AMA members the opportunity to take advantage of substantial savings on everything from hotels to travel attractions to golfing.
The SYC&S program has partners across the world, from the U.S. to Australia and South Africa, as well as local partners in Alberta and throughout Canada. A current list of partners is available in AMA’s SYC&S Savings Directory.
You may also want to look at what level of AMA membership best suits your needs as you get ready to go on vacation. Basic membership provides roadside assistance, while a Plus membership offers enhanced roadside assistance, up to 160 kilometres in free towing, and free gas and delivery. AMA’s RV Plus membership provides all the benefits of a Plus membership, with extra coverage for motorhomes and trailers.
Discovering new things is part of the fun of a vacation, but it’s still a good idea to be prepared before you walk out the door. Learning about dinosaurs during a trip to the Royal Tyrell Museum is one thing. Realizing your car’s radiator has a leak is quite another.
AMA offers tips for road trips as well as suggestions for keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape to help make your vacation as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.
