Before You Leave



You and every member of your family need valid passports to travel to any foreign countries, including return travel to Canada. This includes children, regardless of their age. Never assume that you can travel internationally without a passport. If you do not have a valid passport, we encourage you to apply for one well in advance of your anticipated travel date. Learn more about passport fees.

International Drivers Permit

Make sure that your holiday isn’t spent waiting at the car rental counter. Making certain you have a valid international drivers permit drastically decreases this risk. However, don’t forget your valid local driver’s license and passport. These will definitely need to be shown.
