The legal drinking age in British Columbia is 19. If you don’t look 16 you will never get carded.

Can I use US cash in Victoria B.C?

The currency in Canada is the Canadian Dollar (duh). US dollars are generally accepted everywhere.

The exchange rate has been 1:1 in the past few years.

Some places may charge you an exchange rate of 2-5%.

When the exchange rate is close to par it is best not to convert your cash to Canadian. If you did not bring cash, ATMs will give you the best exchange rate, airports and exchange kiosks close to the border give the worst.

US credit cards and ATM cards work almost everywhere.

Most will charge you a small “international exchange rate” (check with your bank). It is also best to inform your bank of your travels so they don’t accidentally put a hold on your card.

Victoria B.C is a mostly English-speaking part of the country.

While most of the population speaks English, few speak both English and French.

If you’re coming from the US…you will be fine!

We have the complete understanding that knowing a definite party number at the initial planning stages is not easy.

We only require a rough idea of numbers initially. We can then book activities and accommodation for you based on your estimate. We do need you to book with what you feel your maximum group size will be because it’s much easier for us to reduce numbers than increase them later on.

This is largely to do with availability and is particularly important if you’re planning your stag in the peak holiday season.

Exact group numbers will not be necessary until the payment date, please note that you are not liable to pay for the members of your group that may have dropped out.

We don’t include flights in any of our packages so, if you’re looking to go overseas for the weekend you will need to book your own flights. Note that prices change very quickly and flights become very full in peak season, so make sure you book as early as possible.
