Summertime and the Living is Easy
Summer in Saskatchewan is sensational. Warmer temperatures mean more time outdoors with friends and family. Whether it’s travelling to the cottage, camping or picnics, trust CAA to help with your summer plans. Road trips can be safer through CAA’s roadside assistance. We can help with flat tires (cars and bicycles), key-lock service, fuel delivery, battery charging and towing due to vehicle breakdowns.
Always inspect your vehicle before you head out. This includes checking tires and tire pressure, windshield wipers and washer fluid, brakes, car battery and engine oil, plus the air-conditioning unit. For a 10 percent discount on labour, Members can take their vehicle to Regina’s CAA Car Care Centre, located at Regina Battery Depot (RBD), which is owned by CAA Saskatchewan.
On road trips, remember that all occupants, including the driver, must wear working seat belts and children should be seated in properly installed car or booster seats. Highways can be congested in summer with more cars, motorcycles, bicycles and RVs on the road. Please be alert and drive with
caution. Remember: Always slow to 60 km/h on Saskatchewan highways for working tow-truck operators and first responders. It’s the law.
Whether you’re road tripping or choosing a staycation, CAA Rewards can save you money on summer fun. The program—one of the largest of its kind in Canada—is included with your CAA membership. Members can earn CAA Dollars®, which can be redeemed for things like membership renewals,
travel, merchandise and gift cards. Just show your CAA Saskatchewan card at participating businesses.
Members also earn 10 percent in CAA Dollars when pre-purchasing an annual Provincial Park Entry Permit at any CAA Store. And you can score six percent off the pre-purchase of a Parks Canada Discovery Pass. While at your local CAA Store, ask about the Canada Golf Card for savings on green fees at many courses in the province and across Canada.
If your summer plans include air travel, connect with our professional and trusted CAA Travel Consultants. They have the latest information on vacation packages, flights, cruises, excursions, theme parks and travel insurance.
Safe travels and enjoy the summer!
