WestJet Vacations says no to currency surcharge


Despite the fact that most major tour operators have announced currency surcharges to combat the falling Canadian dollar, WestJet Vacations says it has no intention of imposing a currency surcharge on its vacation package bookings.

Tim Croyle, vice-president and general manager of WestJet Vacations, said, “We are committed to the transparency of our advertised prices. 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.”

He added, “We want our guests to book with confidence with WestJet Vacations, knowing that we are striving to provide the best possible pricing available.”
