There's more to the USA & Canada than celebrities & theme parks, with dramatic scenery, iconic sights & the All-American vibe to encounter.

Head to the top of the Rockefeller Center in New York for a 360 degree view of the city, or in Los Angeles, wander down Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Enjoy the nightlife in Las Vegas. Take a trolley tour of Boston. And see where Elvis lived in Memphis. Catch a glimpse of a bear or moose up north in Canada or cross the border in the south to Mexico and explore the ancient Mayan pyramids. USA & Canada has it all.

      Label your suitcase inside and out with your name and your home address and perhaps attach a sticker, ribbon, patch or other unique identifier to your luggage to make it easier to spot.

      Carry a copy of your passportvisas, travel and other important documents as well as your travellers cheque numbers (if you use them) with you in your luggage. You should also leave a copy of all this information at home with someone trusted and contactable while you are away.
      Don’t pack your travel documents and passport in your luggage, rather take it with you in your carry luggage.

      Remember to bring more than enough of any medication you might need along with you and carry prescriptions for any medications that you carry with you.
