Register early and take advantage of discount pricing for day trips. After the early bird cutoff, you can still save money by paying online.
Early registration helps the Club. Trips with too few registered participants may have to be cancelled.
Non-members may purchase one trial day trip before buying a membership.
The option of purchasing trips by mail or by phone is no longer available.
To Buy a Day Trip
Online: Purchase the trip online at the RA website before 9:00 pm on the Wednesday before the trip.
Waiting List: Once a day trip is full, there is no waiting list so you must try the ‘Walk-On Procedure’ described below.
Walk-On Procedure for Day Trips: If you have not been able to reserve a place, you may still be able to go on the trip as a walk-on. There may be seats available or sometimes members who have prepaid seats don’t show, so you will have a good chance of getting on the bus. Go to the last bus pick-up point. Priority will be given to members.
Important: Once you have been registered for a day trip, the fee is not refundable.
To Sell A Day Trip
The Club no longer provides this service.
If you are unable to make a day trip for which you are registered, you may sell your place to anyone you wish, such as a friend or relative.
For US trips, you are solely responsible for having the required documentation to enter the US. A valid passport is required, whatever the mode of transport. Holders of passports from countries other than Canada or the US may require a visa. Some may even need to be fingerprinted and photographed. If you do not have adequate documentation, we may be obliged to leave you at the border.
Please ensure that your annual membership is active before purchasing a weekend trip.
To Buy a Weekend Trip
Online: Purchase the trip online at the RA website before the registration cut-off date specified in the trip description.
Waiting List: Once a weekend trip is full, there is a waiting list for prospective buyers. To be placed on the waiting list, mail a cheque for the full amount to the Club. If a place becomes available, you will be contacted and given the option to purchase the trip. Your cheque will be returned if a place is not found for you.
Important: Once you have been registered for a weekend trip, the fee is not refundable unless the club can find a replacement buyer.
To Sell a Weekend Trip
If you have registered for a weekend trip and are unable to go, email the club at email@example.com as soon as possible, and at least 7 days before the trip.
Because of room-sharing constraints, all sales must be done through the weekend coordinator, who will contact you if a buyer is found.
The Club does not guarantee the sale of your place on the trip.
