Air Canada motorcycle promotion to run again this year

The Air Canada motorcycle cargo promotion will run again this year.

For the past few years, Air Canada has offered a discounted cargo rate between major Canadian cities and some overseas destinations. The offered discount has varied over time, and it hasn’t always been easy to figure out. However, it’s been a fairly popular topic, at least amongst CMG riders, and remains a fairly affordable way to ship your bike across the country.

We’ve been told Air Canada is reviving the promotion again for 2017, with full details most likely available at end of March. We were not given pricing information, nor were we given the exact dates the promotion would run, but we’d expect it to run May 1-September 30, as it has in past years, and we’d also expect flights between Canada and the EU; the South American flight discount was discontinued in a previous year after Air Canada’s customers encountered too much government red tape after landing their bikes.

  1. Always check with your insurance company before entering a foreign land. Mine covers north america and includes the united states. They told me i have no insurance on my bike once i cross into Mexico and that i would have to purchase extra i checked on insurance and it was a fairly high $1200 per week. I quized the guy on why so much and he went over deductables and he also said it comes with a free flight ticket back to the destination.

  2. Excellent initiative Air Canada. Hopefully you make money with it, so others will follow to other destinations. South America red tape depends very much on where you land. Chile is as straightforward and efficient as any European or north American country…

      1. The airline was not an issue…. the customs agent and the airline were arguing about the logistics, a simple problem really! It had nothing to do with my bike. It was otherwise an easy process with air Canada.
