Tour Operators Tauck gives Canadian travelers Canadian pricing By Michelle Baran / February 01, 2017 Share 1 -- For the first time in Tauck's 92-year history, the tour operator is pricing all of its 2018 tours and cruises in Canadian dollars instead of in U.S. currency for its Canadian travelers. Tauck said that the move will allow the company to guarantee prices for Canadian travelers when they pay their initial deposit, eliminating any subsequent pricing adjustments caused by fluctuations in the exchange rate. A few years ago, the Canadian and U.S. dollars used to trade at a rate not much above 1:1. But since the end of 2014, the U.S. dollar has been gaining strength against the Canadian dollar. The U.S. dollar has been hovering at a rate of around 1.3 Canadian dollars for at least the last year. Agents based either in Canada or the U.S. can take advantage of Tauck's Canadian pricing for any clients with a primary address within Canada. Tauck's Canadian website began displaying prices in Canadian dollars last week. The company's first brochure priced in Canadian dollars will be its 2018 European river cruises brochure, set to publish in April.
