What’s a TripTik?

A TripTik itinerary is a route map created using the online TripTik Travel Planner, a one-of-a-kind tool presented by the AAA and CAA. It includes maps, directions and plenty of other useful information. You can even create your itinerary yourself, if you like.

Are you a CAA-Quebec member? Ask one of our specialists to prepare your itinerary—this service is free! You’ll get a personalized route map based on your needs; for example, if you’ll be driving a recreational vehicle or you want to follow a specific route, even if it isn’t the most direct one. Get the most out of our counsellors’ extensive knowledge!
