Where possible, Intrepid uses local transport options and traditional modes of transport - which usually carry less of an environmental impact, support small local operators and are heaps more fun.

Tipping is very much a part of the culture in Canada. Tipping is expected in restaurants and cafes, and is not already included in the bill. Generally, add 15% to the bill or feel free to tip a higher amount if the service is particularly good or you're feeling generous. Overall, it's your choice but remember that wait staff are usually receiving the minimum wage, which is quite low in Canada. Tipping taxi drivers and valet attendants is also customary.

Internet access is good in Canada, and it's easy to find in most cities and towns. Hotels, hostels and internet cafes are usually the best places to access the internet.

Mobile phone coverage is generally very good in Canada but coverage may be patchy in remote areas such as national parks and other mountainous places. Ensure global roaming is activated before you enter Canada.

Western-style, flushable toilets are the standard in Canada.

Cup of coffee = 1.70 CAD

Drinking water from taps in Canada is considered safe unless otherwise advised. For environmental reasons, try to use a refillable water bottle rather than buying bottled water.

Major credit cards are accepted by most retailers and restaurants in Canada. As in most countries, be sure to carry adequate cash for smaller purchases.

ATMs are very common in Canada, so finding one won't be a problem in most towns, cities and suburbs.

Absolutely. All passengers travelling with Intrepid are required to purchase travel insurance before the start of their trip. Your travel insurance details will be recorded by your leader on the first day of the trip. Due to the varying nature, availability and cost of health care around the world, travel insurance is very much an essential and necessary part of every journey.
