We all without a doubt make mistakes when visiting a country we’ve never been to before, so we can be excused for the minimal social blunders we make along the way. Be that as it may, some missteps can be endured however others tend to show some level of lack of awareness or unadulterated imprudence. Some of these slip-ups could cost time and money as many of these are largely avoidable. As a prominent holiday destination, Canada encounters countless tourists all year round. While setting out to Canada, one will undoubtedly commit the same errors that are basic to visitors who are touring different countries.

Canadian weather

Though the climate in Canada varies from region to region, the country as a whole experiences extreme winters. Be sure to pack decent and suitable clothing for whatever the weather. A thermal jacket or two won’t do any harm. We recommend warmer clothes as these are layers that can be taken off, whereas a lack of clothing could be detrimental to your stay. Not steering away from the fact that parts of Canada experience glorious summers too, depending on what time of year you plan on visiting.

Visa application flaws

One of the top mix-ups individuals make while planning a trip is neglecting to meet the complete visa prerequisites of Canada. These visa missteps may forbid one from entry into the country and could furthermore bring about time and money related costs. Some issues may include:

  • Uncompleted application forms
  • Invalid proof that you plan on returning back to your home country after your holiday, such as a return ticket
  • Absence of supporting documents
  • Inadequate documents to bolster the application
  • Inaccurate information
  • Absence of supporting affidavits
  • Using informal delegates to file the forms

If you can avoid all of these common mistakes, your visit to Canada will be smooth sailing. It is recommended to hire an immigration professional to expedite your visa.

Travel insurance

By now we’re sure you’ve heard about Canada’s reputable healthcare but newsflash, it’s for residents only. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, getting hospitalized in Canada without travel insurance doesn’t sound too pleasing now, does it? Being hospitalized in a foreign country could be incredibly costly, so travel insurance comes highly recommended if something were to happen, to you or a member of your family. So cover yourself and make sure whoever is traveling with you is covered too.

Travel documentation

Getting your travel documents in order is greatly important to avoid disappointment at the airport (so close yet so far). There are a few things to put on your to-do list, such as; checking passport expiry dates, thoroughly reading through an airline’s terms and conditions checking your information when booking flights, carrying the right visa, and ensuring you know what items are prohibited and what items are not.

Plan your activities

If nature and scenic views are your things, then Canada will fulfill all your traveling desires. Canada’s beauty definitely lies outside of its cities, where man has not touched or modified the natural landmarks. Its beauty lies in the mountains and forests, lakes and waterfalls. The perfect itinerary consists of trips to Niagara Falls, Tombstone Territorial Park, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Banff National Park, and the magical Lake Louise. These are once in a lifetime experience, so plan well. Canada is the world’s second-largest country, so much so that it covers 5 time zones so traveling to each province could take hours.

Cellphones costs

Numerous sightseers have borne the costly brunt of forceful PDA suppliers who charge over the top expenses for explorers to Canada. In the event that you wish to keep away from immoderate meandering charges and abroad information charges, either call your administration supplier and ask on the off chance that they have any extraordinary arrangements for voyagers or utilize a neighborhood prepaid telephone/sim card. Another alternative would be to utilize Wi-Fi hotspots. Now that you’ve got the heads up, be sure to be well prepared for your trip to Canada or any country for that matter. Canada is a well-run country that follows a strict set of rules and falling out of line could really dampen your trip. Abide by their rules and you’ll have a pleasant trip.
