WestJet Vacations says it has no plans for a currency surcharge

CALGARY — WestJet Vacations has no intention of imposing a currency surcharge on vacation package bookings in the wake of most major tour operators imposing a $35 fee because of the falling Canadian dollar.

“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.”
