Right to cancel within one year
14(1)  In addition to the right of cancellation under section 13, a

contract is entered into

(2)  The notice of cancellation may be given by any means, including

cancel the travel club contract and enables the consumer to provide
evidence of the date that notice of cancellation is given.

(3)  Where the notice is given other than by personal service or orally,
the notice of cancellation is deemed to be given when sent.

(4)  The notice of cancellation may be sent or delivered to the travel club
operator at the address set out in the travel club contract or, if the

referred to in subsection (4), the consumer may send or deliver the notice

Effect of cancellation of contract
17(1)  The cancellation of a travel club contract in accordance with this
Regulation operates to cancel the contract as if the travel club contract
had never existed.

(2)  A cancellation of a travel club contract in accordance with this
Regulation also operates to cancel

     (a)  any related sale,

     (b)  any guarantee given in respect of money payable under the
contract, and

     (c)  any security given by the consumer or a guarantor in respect of
money payable under the contract,

as if the travel club contract had never existed.

(3)  Where credit is extended or arranged by the travel club operator, the
credit contract is conditional on the travel club contract whether or not
the credit contract is a part of or attached to the travel club contract,
and if the travel club contract is cancelled, that cancellation has the
effect of cancelling the credit contract as if the travel club contract had
never existed.


Return of consideration after cancellation
18(1)  Within 15 days after a travel club contract is cancelled under
section 13, the travel club operator  must refund to the consumer the total
consideration paid by the consumer to enter into the contract.

(2)  Where a travel club contract has been cancelled under section 13 and
the consumer has received goods or services under the contract, the travel
club operator is entitled to reasonable compensation from the consumer for
the goods or services provided by the travel club operator, but the travel
club operator's right under this subsection does not arise until the travel
club operator complies with subsection (1).

(3)  Within 15 days after a travel club contract is cancelled under section
14 or 15, the travel club operator must refund to the consumer a pro-rated
portion of the total consideration paid by the consumer to enter into the
contract, based on the percentage of the term of the contract remaining
after the date of cancellation.

Code of conduct
19(1)  In this section, "travel club operator" includes every individual
who acts on behalf of a travel club operator in the travel club business.

(2)  A travel club operator must comply with the following code of conduct:

     (a)  when first contacting a consumer, a travel club operator

               (i)  must truthfully inform the consumer of the travel
club operator's identity, and

               (ii) must indicate that the travel club operator is
soliciting the consumer for the purpose of entering into a travel club
contract with the consumer;

     (b)  a travel club operator must not use print that due to its size
or other visual characteristics is likely to materially impair the
legibility or clarity of documents the travel club operator provides to a
consumer;

     (c)  a travel club operator must not commit an unfair practice.

(3)  Where a contravention of subsection (2) occurs in the course of
inducing a consumer to enter into a travel club contract, the contravention
is a breach of the code of conduct even if the travel club contract is not
entered into.

     SCHEDULE

     CONSUMER'S RIGHT TO CANCEL
     A TRAVEL CLUB CONTRACT

The Travel Clubs Regulation specifies that a consumer who enters into a
travel club contract may cancel the contract from the day it is entered
into until 10 days after the consumer receives a copy of the signed
contract.  A consumer does not need a reason to cancel the contract.

If a consumer cancels a travel club contract within the 10-day period
described above, the travel club operator has 15 days to refund the
consumer's money.  To cancel, the consumer must give a notice of
cancellation to the travel club operator by any means that enables the
consumer to prove that notice was given, including registered mail,
facsimile, courier or personal delivery.

A consumer may be entitled to additional cancellation rights in accordance
with the Travel Clubs Regulation.

A consumer who wishes more information about cancelling a travel club
contract or who feels unfairly treated with regard to a travel club
contract may contact Alberta Government Services at 427-4088, or toll-free
at 1-877-427-4088 if calling from outside Edmonton.
