Trip Interruption & Vehicle Return

A Carefree Trip

Did you know that your CAA Manitoba Membership automatically covers you with our Trip Interruption & Vehicle Return benefit?

It’s included – free – with your Membership!

If you're travelling in a vehicle and your trip is interrupted for more than 24 hours due to an automobile accident, mechanical breakdown, auto theft, or unexpected illness or injury, you may be eligible to claim certain expenses through CAA Manitoba.

If your car is disabled for more than 24 hours because of a collision, and you’re more than 160 km from home, CAA has you covered. We’ll reimburse your meal expenses, accommodations or alternative transportation for the first 72 hours after the accident.

You may receive reimbursement for one of the following:

  • commercial transportation (i.e. bus, train or plane) to reach your destination or home
  • commercial car rental to reach your destination or home
  • accommodations and meals during the first 72 hours while waiting for car repairs
