CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Travel Advisory: RV Rental Cancellation Policies

Adventure Touring sends our regards to our customers during these uncertain times. Our principal focus at this time is the health and wellbeing of our customers. The COVID-19 virus has brought many changes and unexpected challenges to all of us. Including, highly impacting the travel industry. (Included below is a list of updated CoronaVirus RV Rental cancellation policies).

With travel across the nation coming to a halt, our reservations team is working hard to get through hundreds of cancellations. Our rental partners across the country are doing the best they can to meet the needs of our customers at this time. Due to the high volume of cancellations, processing, and sorting through individual cases is taking much longer than our normal, making it difficult to meet the high service standards we pride ourselves on. Thank you for your continued support and rest assured we are working hard to process every case. Trust that our reservations team will respond to each of you as soon as we can. 

With recent travel restrictions imposed we wanted to share the revised CoronaVirus RV cancellation policies of our rental partners and how they may impact your booking. Please be aware of the pre-emptive steps being undertaken by our partners to continue to ensure that all RV’s are both disinfected and fully sanitized.

Please note many of our rental partners are still operating and that a 14-day campervan trip does meet the requirements of self-isolation. 

We will continue to provide updates as we receive new information. Suppliers are refining their Terms and Conditions on an ongoing basis as Governments amend policy’s on the movement of people.

CRUISE CANADA – Updated March 24

We continue to monitor the situation closely with regard to the travel ban and restrictions surrounding Covid-19. For International travelers affected traveling to the USA and Canada and have now updated our policy for reservations and cancellations to all Cruise America & Cruise Canada departures as follows:

  • Cancellations: For all Cruise America and Cruise Canada departures (for International travelers affected) booked to depart through to May 31st, 2020, Cruise America and Cruise Canada shall waive ALL cancellation fees.
  • Reservations Changes and Re-bookings (with 20% discount!): For all departures during this period (for International travelers affected) booked to depart through to May 31st, 2020, Cruise America & Cruise Canada will be happy to modify or change any bookings during this departure period to any other dates during the 2020 season.

Details of Re-booking offer with 20% discount:
  •  We do understand that due to European Travel regulations, some tour operators may have no choice but to cancel every booking during the official travel ban period (currently in effect through April 12th). In these cases, if the client cancels and then re-books, we will treat this the same as a change or modification and we will happily honor the 20% incentive mentioned above.

  •  Group bookings are not included in the above offer – please contact Cruise America / Cruise Canada reservations directly to discuss re-booking options for existing Groups.

Before you Begin your Winter RV Adventure

  • Check the weather!! The weather can change quickly and it’s smart to be prepared.
  • Have a backup plan. Flexibility, when you are RVing in the snow, is a nice option. Spend an extra night at your favorite ski resort and travel on when the weather is looking better.
  • Check which campgrounds are open for winter camping. Find winter campgrounds here.
  • Read this article on pro tips for driving an RV in the snow.

What to Pack to RV in the Snow

  • RVing in the snow means pack warm clothes. But, make sure you bring extra clothing layers, gloves, and hats.
  • Pack extra snacks and water.
  • Shovel: you never know when a shovel will come in handy! A shovel will help dig you out if you get stuck. Also, you can dig yourself a nice flat area to park.
  • Boardgames and movies: if its too cold to go out and play, bring fun family activities to keep you entertained.
  • Snowshoes, ski’s, camera, and whatever winter activity gear you require for this adventure.

 General Tips to RVing in the Snow

  • When parking your RV in the snow, place wooden blocks under the stabilizing jack to keep them from freezing and sticking.
  • Keep an eye on the propane tanks. Running out could lead to a chilly night.
  • Keep your gas tank full. This will prevent ice from forming in the gas tank. Also, it will give you peace of mind if you do hit a detour or need to take another route.
  • Watch for black ice, if you do slide, try to avoid the brakes and keep the RV pointed straight.

Tips to keep the RV Warm and Cozy!

  • Keep the snow shoveled off the roof.
  • Park in the sun, and naturally heat the RV. This will melt the snow off the roof and brighten your day of course!
  • Park the RV with protection from the wind, if this isn’t possible park the RV so the wind is hitting the front of the RV rather than the sides.
  • With our insulated RV’s and weatherproofing to -30C, running the furnace will keep everything warm. Including, water pipes and hoses.
