Canada turns 150 this year. In honour of the momentous occasion, InsuranceHunter.ca wants to help you explore the greatest country on the planet with a $1,500 travel credit toward the destination of your choice.
All you need to is to do, is a) be a proud resident of Canada b) read and consent to the contest rules outlined below, and c) provide your name and email for your chance to win.
With sprawling borders, breathtaking landscapes, unique natural wonders and innumerable welcoming towns and cities, there is no shortage of suitable destinations to explore. So sign up and begin planning your getaway.
You could fly across the country to spend a week camping and hiking in the sprawling shadow of the majestic Rocky Mountains, or opt to visit one of the most distinctive landscapes the country has to offer in the Alberta Badlands. You could take a leisurely road trip across the prairies, or divert from the beaten path to catch a glimpse of the northern lights in Canada’s northern territories.
If you’re more inclined to keep it urban, you can check out the offerings of Canada’s largest metropolis, which include the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre and many of the country’s most highly regarded restaurants. Alternatively, you could pay homage to our nation’s past by visiting museums in the capital city of Ottawa, or seek the European flare of Quebec City. Perhaps you’ll decide to relax on the red sand beaches of Cavendish, or spend some time in tranquil cottage country.
You can even go international and spread some of that famous Canadian charm to the countries of your choosing.
However and wherever you want to travel this year, let us help pay your way. Just complete the form above for your chance to win a $1,500 travel credit.
But before you get lost in daydreams of jet-setting around the country, here’s a little advice for making the most of your travels.
Get travel insurance: You’re probably aware that travel insurance is important when you visit another country, but did you know that it is also required to cover certain costs when you cross provincial lines?
You may already be covered by your employment benefits or credit card. If you’re not sure, check to see if you’re protected; you don’t want to waste money by buying something you already own.
If you’re not covered, you can find the best deal by comparing different quotes with InsuranceHunter.ca's comparison tool. It’s quick, easy and will save you money.
Make your money stretch: Just because we’re giving you $1,500 to put toward your trip, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look to save money where you can. Before booking your trip, research how to save money. Here's some advice for how to make every dollar stretch a little further.
Plan for the trip you want: Going solo is different than putting your travel credit toward your honeymoon, or taking the whole family on a trip. Before settling on the details, determine who is going, what your destination offers each travel companion and the ultimate purpose of the trip. Taking the time to think about these things will lead to a more rewarding vacation. If you want to get through the details as efficiently as possible, use a helpful travel app to assist you.
Consider your mode of transportation: Canada is a massive country, but you don’t have to fly across it. You’ve got options. Look into trains, buses and road trip routes to determine the best course for your vacation.
Now that you’re ready, prepared and excited to go, we wish you the best of luck.
Happy travels, from the entire InsuranceHunter.ca team!
