WestJet Vacations plans no currency surcharge

23 January 2014

WestJet Vacations said that it has no intention of imposing a currency surcharge on vacation package bookings.

In response to the falling Canadian dollar, many major tour operators are adding currency surcharges to their bookings.

“We are committed to the transparency of our advertised prices,” said Tim Croyle, vice-president and general manager, WestJet Vacations. “We believe the base price should reflect the true price of the package, and that the only taxes and fees charged should be those that are passed on to government and regulatory bodies, not used to offset cost increases. We want our guests to book with confidence with WestJet Vacations, knowing that we are striving to provide the best possible pricing available.”
