Tour Operators

Book now, fares to go up: Sunquest


Due to the ongoing depreciation of the Canadian dollar, Sunquest is advising travellers and travel agents that it plans to increase the prices of its package vacations.

The price changes will take effect after the Jan. 11 weekend allowing anyone who is thinking about booking a vacation, a few days in which they can do so at the current, lower price.

“Tour operators generally pay for the cost of hotel accommodations in US dollars. The Canadian dollar’s value has deteriorated to such an extent that we must raise our prices,” the company said in a statement. “However, by giving some notice on these plans, we are also giving customers the opportunity to book today and save.”
