A recent article about the end of the HST had a list of goods and services that will have savings due to lower tax. One big-ticket item that was not listed is package travel in Canada. We have re-priced all Wells Gray Tours packages in Canada leaving from April 1 onwards and there are some huge savings. The price of our
Maritimes and Newfoundland tour, for instance, has dropped $400 per person due to charging five per cent GST instead of HST. The savings are not quite as good for travel within B.C. as the hotel tax of eight per cent will be implemented. Tours to the U.S. and cruises are not affected.
