Taking a Vacation


The hectic pace of everday life can start to wear on all of us and it's nice to have a break and get away for a bit. Whether you load the kids into the van and take off on a family road trip, head off on a jungle adventure in Costa Rica or are looking for a quiet gondola ride in Venice with that special someone, Encompass Credit Union can help you save and plan for your next vacation.

Travel agencies offer packages that are designed to meet all kinds of holiday desires. This can be a good way to save money, but may not suit your individual needs. Traveling by car provides a lot of freedom, but the distance you can travel is then limited.

The most popular method of vacation travel is by plane. Full-fare tickets offer the most flexibility and fewest restrictions, but they come at a price. If you can travel outside of one of the peak seasons, and know the dates you want to leave and return well in advance, discount airfare is available. Seat sales are limited and can't be counted on, especially for large families.

Staying in hotels and eating in restaurants can get expensive. Do some research before you leave. There are a lot of books and websites to help you find the accommodations and places to eat that are right for you.



It's easier to relax when you're away knowing that you're covered if something goes wrong. There are a variety of insurance packages that cover everything from lost luggage to health care while you're away from home. Your Provincial Health Care does not cover all medical expenses so make sure you're protected.
