Your Budget - No Surprises

We want everything to be fully transparent – no surprises. We understand that budgeting for your trip is important to you.

 

  • Pricing is in CANADIAN dollars (CAD). 

  • All taxes & fees are INCLUDED in the outlined price. We are sharing this because sales tax is normally not included in pricing in Canada – and it is significant.

  • No booking processing fees - pay your way with most major credit/debit cards, Interac or Transferwise

  • The prices are split out by type e.g., trip pass, accommodations and access fees so that you understand where/what is being spent where.

 

For those paying in a foreign currency here are a few example currency conversions (as of Jan 2020). Your trip might cost less than you think. For example a $1000 CAD is £580 pounds, €680 EURO or $1100 AUD.

  • UK / Pound Sterling: 1.00 CAD is 0.58 Pounds

  • Euro: 1.00 CAD is 0.68 EURO

  • Australian Dollars: 1.00 CAD is 1.11 AUD
