When destination-hopping around Canada, it’s important to pace yourself, especially if you’re a visitor who’s older or not yet used to the climate. Jet lag can set in quickly if taking multiple flights or crossing different time zones. Hurrying to make a travel connection could end up slowing you down if it results in a twisted ankle. The symptoms of heat stroke, sun stroke or dehydration can take their toll well before you feel their effects if you’re spending time outdoors. When planning for possibilities such as these, leave plenty of time for travelling to and catching connections at airports, cruise terminals and other points of departure. Also, be sure to make time to rest along the way – and get plenty of sleep to help feel refreshed and ready to enjoy the day. Just in case, have a plan in place if the unexpected does happen.
While there are lots of great tips available on how to pack for a great trip, probably the best packing tip is to make sure you have Visitors to Canada travel insurance.
