Here’s your Rewards Canada update! Your near daily dose of
loyalty program, credit card and travel news, bonuses, deals and more.

The Canadian Government announced the resumption of COVID-19
mandatory random testing for those entering Canada by air. As of July 19
the random tests will return for fully vaccinated travellers arriving
into Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Click here to learn more.

Air travellers who qualify as fully vaccinated and who are
selected for mandatory random testing, as well as air travellers who do
not qualify as fully vaccinated, will receive an email notification
within 15 minutes of completing their customs declaration. The email
will contain information to help them arrange for their test with a
testing provider in their region. Unvaccinated travellers can complete
their tests by a virtual appointment or an in-person appointment with
the test provider at their store or at select pharmacies and still
respect their quarantine requirements.

Sonesta Hotels are offering 2x Travel Pass points
for stays at all their hotels until the end of September. Locally the
brand has two locations in the Toronto area, The Yorkville Royal
Sonesta Hotel Toronto
(formerly the InterContinental Yorkville) and the
Sonesta ES Suites Toronto Markham. where you can earn this bonus. Click here to learn more about this offer.
