With all of its information, it has been of great value to Coach and Tour Operators across Canada and the U.S. Its main benefit is that it provides Coach and Tour Operators the help they need in planning tours to Canadian provinces and territories. Not only does it provide help in planning tours, but it provides specific information on border crossings, Canada Customs and Immigration, and provincial/territorial operating requirements. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has confirmed that June 1, 2009 is the date on which travelers to the U.S. will be required to present a passport or other approved secure document denoting citizenship and identity for all land and sea travel into the U.S. Since motor coach travel is the most environmentally friendly mode, we believe we can attract more passengers with the right promotion. MCC is doing its share in promoting environmental awareness among its members. For this reason, the article on page 38 of this year’s Guide will be of particular interest to tour and coach operators.This Guide provides information that will assist you in promoting motor coach travel. As you peruse this 4th edition of the Canadian Tour Planner and Operator Guide, we hope that it will continue to be of great value to you.
