Falling Canadian Dollar is music to the ears of US, UK and Australian travellers

As the Canadian Dollar continues to fall against most other major currencies, it’s not all bad news. In fact it’s good news for travellers coming to Canada from the US, the UK, and Australia. This week the Loonie opened at 69 cents for each US dollar, an exchange rate that hasn’t been seen since since April 2000.

That’s the equivalent of a huge 31% discount on your accommodation, lift passes, rentals, dining, and travel costs.

So why wait? The stars are aligned, the snow is falling, and the savings are high!
