Dream Vacation

Explore the jungles of Costa Rica with an experienced guide or enjoy a quiet after-dinner gondola ride in Venice with that special someone. Summerland Credit Union can help you save and plan for that special dream vacation.

Travel Expenses

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 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 abroad knowing that you're covered if something goes wrong. There are different insurance packages available that cover everything from lost luggage to health care while in another country. Your Provincial Health Care does not cover all medical expenses, so make sure you're protected.  Let McBain Insurance Agency* help with your travel coverage and put your mind at ease.

Travellers Cheques

The safest and most convenient way to carry money while you travel in a foreign country is to buy traveller's cheques in advance. Travellers cheques are accepted all over the world and can be replaced quickly if they are lost or stolen.

A great vacation can be had on any budget with a little planning. Let Summerland Credit Union help you make that dream vacation a reality.
