About Awesome Travel Stuff

Most international vacations and business trips go off without a hitch.

  • Unlimited 24/7 access to security/medical experts and crisis response specialists, via an international toll-free telephone number. CAP will have your itinerary and know if you are in an area under threat. If you wish, you can download 'My Trac' to your iPhone and allow CAP to know your location using GPS at all times.
  • If required, a crisis consultant will be dispatched to provide you with immediate emergency assistance.
  • In the case of a natural disaster, you will be provided with emergency shelter, food, and medical assistance. Arrangements to return to Canada as quickly as possible will be made.
  • In the event of an accident, ambulance and medical treatment can be arranged immediately.

CAP is an Emergency Response Service and is not insurance, you should also obtain travel insurance to cover medical bills, flight cancellation, and rebooking costs.
