Hurricanes, vacation plans and your legal rights

September 18, 2017

Does the current news about hurricanes, over-booked flights and lost luggage make you think: What would I do if it happened to me? What are my rights?

We have information to help you avoid legal problems while on holiday. Or if you’ve got a problem, our pages can help you work it out. We offer in-depth, step-by-step guidance for dealing with a holiday problem — from before you book, to the time you return.  

So, plan your holiday. And make our resources part of your planning.

This website explains in a general way the law that applies in British Columbia, Canada. The information is not intended as legal advice. The cases we refer to reflect real experiences, but names have been changed. See our full disclaimer.
