  2. If possible bring a credit card with you while traveling. Credit cards can be used as identification and for making deposits on rentals if needed.
  3. Don't forget your camera - we will guarantee that you will want to take photos of new friends, beautiful scenery and wild animals!
  4. Book your pre-departure accommodation in advance. Moose tours pick up at major hostels in Vancouver. Not sure where to stay? Contact our office for recommendations.
  5. Join our Facebook travel community and hook up with you future bus mates. If you have any questions we can surely answer them there. Possibly peruse some of the pics of passengers past!
