Whistler is one of the main transit hubs for people traveling between the United States and Canada. It is however very important for US residents to have the passport while traveling to Canada since this is required while returning to the US even if not needed it while entering Canada. Along with the passport, it is also very important to have proper international travel health insurance since domestic US health insurance does not provide good coverage outside US borders. Canadian health care is not available to Non Canadians and US citizens should have proper health insurance if forced to visit a Canadian healthcare facility. US based business travelers who travel to Canada often can buy the annual multi-trip travel insurance to supplement their domestic US health insurance. This insures US travelers while outside the United States for the whole year, with each trip however limited for a fixed period of time depending on the annual plan chosen.
Canadians traveling regularly to the United States can also buy the Annual multi-trip insurance plans as long as they have domestic health insurance in Canada.
