INNOCULATIONS

Travelers do not require inoculations to visit British Columiba.

 

TRAVEL INSURANCE

Taking out an insurance policy before traveling to BC protects against injury, illness, theft and loss. While a travel insurance policy may cover for loss of baggage, cancellations, tickets etc., many exclude activities listed as “dangerous sports” unless an additional premium is paid. Make sure to check the fine print. 

In BC, these activities can include trekking, whitewater rafting and scuba-diving. Kayaking, however, is usually not considered a potential “dangerous sport.”

Make sure to keep receipts for medical treatment and/or medicines. Also, obtain a statement from the police if you find yourself needing to make a claim.
