Happy Holidays, Happy Trails
Our warmest wishes and handiest tips for the festive season Saskatchewan is a real winter wonderland. During the holiday season, the province’s parks and recreation facilities become playgrounds for cross-country and downhill skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, snowboarding, walking and hiking.
Wherever your snowy adventures take you, rest easy knowing that CAA Roadside Assistance is here to help. CAA Roadside Assistance is always ready—365 days a year, seven days a week, 24 hours a day. There are three easy ways to request service: Call 1-800-222-4357; request service online; or use the CAA Mobile app.
To winterize your ride, we asked Regina’s Car Care Centre at Regina Battery Depot to provide their top tips for the season. First, check your oil, wipers and fluid, belts and hoses. And get your battery tested—cold conditions can weaken it and cause it to fail.
In Saskatchewan, winter tires are a must. They provide better traction on roads: The rubber in snow tires is specially designed for snow and ice conditions. Don’t forget to check your tire pressure too—including the spare.
If you’re not sure about your vehicle’s maintenance, get a tune-up at Regina’s CAA Car Care Centre or visit any of CAA’s AARS shops around the province.
Pack a roadside assistance kit. If you don’t have one, purchase one online at caask.ca/shop or at a CAA Store near you. Some kits include a collapsible snow shovel, battery-booster cables, candles, a blanket and a first-aid kit. Remember to supplement your kit as well. Add items like non-perishable food, water and additional clothing and footwear for all vehicle occupants.
If you’re skipping winter altogether and heading to a warmer climate, speak to an experienced CAA Travel Consultant. Whatever your travel style—guided touring, cruising, solo travel, all-inclusive or family vacationing—CAA can help.
