No matter where in the world you live, it's hard to escape the impact of coronavirus. It dominates the news cycle, and people have started buying out toilet paper, hand sanitizer and Kleenex across the country. Understandably, some Canadians want to change their travel plans, in order to minimize exposure to the virus.
I personally still plan to fly this weekend, but that's mostly because I'm travelling through airports that have been mostly unaffected. However, if you do want to postpone your vacations or business trips for the time being, some airlines have introduced new policies to help you out. WestJet and Air Canada, for example, are waiving their usual change fees – which means you won't have to pay to reschedule flights.
At WestJet, this applies to travel booked between March 5 and 31, 2020. Their "one-time change fee waiver is available for any itinerary change made more than 14 days from departure." All details are available online, and you can also find more information WestJet's coronavirus response, including their cleaning procedures.
Flights aren't the only thing impacted by the novel coronavirus. As you might have already heard, this year's Roll Up the Rim contest starts TODAY at Tim Hortons, but you won't be issued a physical cup to roll. Instead, you'll earn entries in a digital contest and have a chance to win your purchase at one of their restaurants.
