There has never

time to travel
With a strong Canadian dollar and some
record-low travel prices, there truly has
never been a better time to travel than
Fewer crowds: Visiting many of the world’s great
destinations and attractions is normally something
of a double-edged sword. While most hot spots have
very good reasons for their popularity, the jostling
crowds of fellow travellers can often detract from the
experience. Now is a fantastic time to visit many “mustsee”
destinations like Orlando, London and New York,
without the normally attendant crowds. The added bonus
is that the locals who depend on tourism — and who are
typically overwhelmed by the annual crush of tourists —
will be less harried. They’ll have more time to chat, service
will likely be better and they’ll be all the more grateful for
Stronger dollar: A very strong Canadian dollar has not
only made US travel more attractive, but less expensive,
too. The Euro, British Pound and American Dollar are
currently trading at very favourable exchange rates.
Greater value: A stronger dollar isn’t the only economic
incentive to travel today. Many travel providers are
currently enticing consumers with a host of special
programs and promotions to increase value and bring in
business. However, as we move out of the recession, travel
providers will begin to move away from discounting and

return to more “traditional” pricing. The travel deals of
2009 and 2010 will likely not extend into the future, and
now is the time to do that family vacation you’ve always
dreamt of. Cruises, Disney, tour operators, hotels, etc… are
all offering great deals and incentives now, but we don’t
expect it will last.
Stress relief: Finally, and ironically, the very thing that
has prompted people to forgo travel is one of the key
things that also argues in favour of taking a vacation now
—stress. A nice, relaxing escape offers a welcome respite
and a chance for the family to spend time together.

Cruising offers a
It’s no wonder the travelling
public says cruise vacations are
an outstanding value.
For just one price, a typical
cruise includes accommodations,
meals, snacks, entertainment,
use of recreational and other
ship facilities, along with the
opportunity to sail from one
destination to another —
sometimes six in the course of a
week’s cruise. And…what’s more
convenient that getting on your
ship and unpacking just once?
For those who have done fly,
drive or all inclusive vacations,
cruising offers a unique alternative.
Here are a few of my tips for firsttime
The price of your cruise is based
primarily on your chosen level of
accommodations, your itinerary and
the time of year you chose to travel.
Pat Rotz, Vice President – Travel & Auto Club
Most ships offer a wide choice of
inside and ocean view staterooms,
staterooms with balconies and
Cruises come in every length,
from three days to three months.
If budget is a high priority, pick a
shorter cruise from a closer cruise
port and consider driving to the
port instead of flying.
Travel during the off-season or
“non-holiday” periods or before/
after major holidays to take
advantage of substantial savings. By
picking an “off season” destination
— Alaska, in May, for example —
you can often save money and
enjoy the same excitement and
pleasure of an Alaskan cruise in the
summer. A New Year’s Eve cruise
is a great time to travel, but by
going the week after New Year’s Eve
the cost of your cruise can be cut
Cruises are an ideal choice
for families, extended families,
and friends who want to share
a memorable vacation. Because
cruise lines offer activities just right
for every generation, consider
bringing the extended family and
creating your own group of cruisers.
Most cruise lines reward you for
booking multiple staterooms.
CAA Niagara has cruise specialists at
all five branches who can help you
determine the cruise that’s right for
your unique vacation needs.

The family that plays together…
Who among us doesn’t have great childhood
memories of summer vacations with their family?
Why not make new memories for your family by
taking a drive vacation this summer? It’s easy,
affordable and fun.
“Drive vacations are a great way to maximize your
family time and explore some historic, beautiful and
famous destinations within a day’s drive of Niagara,” says
CAA’s Travel Product Manager, Lisa Boardman. “You can
set your own pace; stop as frequently as you want and
even wander the road less travelled.”
“Through CAA’s Exclusive Getaways, our Travel
Consultants have a variety of “one-day-away” drive
vacations that we think you and your family will enjoy,”
Lisa said. “We can organize the major components,
like accommodations and attractions tickets, then you
personalize it with family favourites.”
Lisa’s personal suggestions are:
Philadelphia, the birthplace of American independence,
has something for everyone. For history fans, definite
“must-sees” are the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall’s
Assembly Room, where America’s Founding Fathers wrote
the Declaration of Independence. Film buffs and athletes,
be sure to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art and do
your best Rocky impression on the Museum’s iconic stairs.
Montreal, dubbed one of the world’s most livable
cities, is renowned for its relaxed French atmosphere
and its abundant history. The cobblestone streets of Old
Montréal are lined with stone houses, Paris-like cafés,
and architectural beauties like the 18th-century Pointe
à Callière (Museum of Archeology & History). The city’s
downtown boasts a trove of churches and some fine
museums focusing on art, history and architecture.
Washington D.C. is a sophisticated, family-friendly
city full of historical landmarks. No tour is complete
without checking out the Capitol Building, Washington
Monument, Lincoln Memorial and the Arlington National
Cemetery. And for those travelling on a budget, you
can explore Washington’s majestic monuments and
the renowned Smithsonian Museums... for free. All this
combined with excellent hotels and award-winning
restaurants make for an unforgettable vacation.

Let CAA Niagara Travel Help
The Most Out Of Your Next
As the last blasts of winter give
way to the first days of spring the
thoughts of many families finally
turn toward warmer weather and
planning a summer vacation.
The good news is that there are
popular, proven family travel
options that actually require little
to no planning. Here are three
options to consider that take care
of much of the planning for you:
All-inclusive resorts don’t require
extensive planning, as the resort typically
provides your accommodations, meals,
drinks, nightly entertainment and a
variety of activities and water sports.
Many all-inclusive resorts have invested
heavily in “kids clubs” designed specifically
for toddlers, tweens and teens, giving
parents ample time to relax and enjoy
the resorts amenities. However, guests
are usually free to leave the property and
explore the local culture at their leisure.
Most all-inclusive resorts also include
airfare, transfers and gratuities, virtually
eliminating additional expenses. With
a variety of free on-site amenities and a
more relaxed pace, all-inclusive resorts are
ideal for the family looking to unwind.
Modern cruise ships are basically floating
resorts, offering superb dining, “kids-only,”
“tweens” and “teen facilities” and exciting onboard
entertainment. However, with numerous
ports of call and available shore excursions,
cruises typically provide a more diverse and
exciting experience than all-inclusive resorts.
Most cruises stop at a different port each day,
allowing you to absorb a variety of new
and unique cultures and visit several
countries throughout your vacation.
For the restless family, waking up
in a different port each day is a
fun way to travel and keep
the kids entertained. Shore
excursions are a great
way to experience
the unique culture
of each country you
visit. Shore excursions
come at a variety of
price points, and can
range from historical tours
to adventure sports to
culinary courses. Every shore
excursion has been tested
and inspected by the cruise
line, guaranteeing you a safe
and enjoyable experience. In
addition, most shore excursions
include transportation to and
from the ship, making them even
more convenient and hassle-free.

Escorted Family Tours
Arranging transportation and accommodations, planning activities
to please different age groups and keeping everything under budget
are just some of the challenges families can face when trying to plan
their summer retreat. Fortunately, tour operators are stepping up and
designing escorted tours with families in mind, and the options they
present are guaranteed to tempt any traveller.
for under $200
The price of the tour typically includes flights, hotels, most
meals, attraction tickets and transportation. Sometimes all
that’s left to budget for are the “wish you were here” postcards.
Family members are guaranteed a comfortable room to sleep
in each night, and picky eaters will be grateful for a little
flexibility in their meals. Most importantly, parents won’t have
to worry about navigating unfamiliar roads.
One of the trickier aspects of the family vacation is planning
activities and sightseeing trips that appeal to children and
adults alike. Modern parents like their children to have the
most enriching, educational experiences possible, but kids
can only tolerate so many historical, ‘look-but-don’t-touch’
exhibits. Quality tour operators balance
this element with interactive, imaginative
and often playful activities — a day or two
watching animals at a national park, rafting
down a river, visiting a medieval castle or eating real
Italian pizza or gelato. With the chance to burn a little energy
and enjoy hands-on experiences, children are more likely to
have a positive impression of the trip, which keeps the adults
happy as well.
As an added benefit, tour operators can often offer
discounted air when you make your flight arrangements
through them instead of on your own. Other money-saving
ideas to consider are group discounts for larger families and
reduced rates for young travellers.
• No medical declaration required up to age 59
• Children may travel separately
