Can I pay for my trip in Canadian dollars?

Famous for its enormous icebergs, towering glaciers and shimmering summer light, Antarctica offers some of the planet's most awe inspiring landscapes. The North Atlantic and Arctic evoke images of sparse snow covered lands, but when summer comes it bursts with colour and life.

Can I pay for my trip in Canadian dollars?

Postby maryann-ns » Mon Aug 25, 2014 9:50 pm

I have emailed G Adventures to ask but they are slow in replying to emails. I want to book a trip and it would make a difference if I could pay in $CAD since that is where I am.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Here's an idea... since G is based in Canada, why not just call them directly with your question? It might be quicker.

The G website advertises prices for me in Australian dollars, so don't see why you couldn't pay in canadian.

Alternatively book through a travel agency.

Yes I had already emailed them and the answer is that I pay in CAD. That makes it considerable less expensive to book with them than an agent charging in $US. I am going to double check everything and take the plunge today or tomorrow.

I learned that if you are British, American, or Australian you pay in your own currency.
