Canadian Tour Operators and Suppliers are simply not going to advise U.S. Residents to book and pay in Canadian Dollars to reap the benefit of the strong U.S. Dollar. Knowing which currency saves customers the most money is another benefit of booking with Vacations by Rail.

Vacations by Rail, a Chicago-based specialty travel company selling independent rail vacations and group train tours around the world sees a rare opportunity for customers to take advantage of the sudden strength of the U.S. Dollar verses the Canadian Dollar. Customers booking in Canadian Dollars and paying in full can save $100's of dollars on rail vacations in Canada.    Less than 60 days ago the exchange rate was almost par, but today customers who book their trips and pay in Canadian Dollars would receive almost a 25% savings based on current exchange rates.

"Vacations by Rail customers can have amazing savings by combining the strength of the U.S. Dollar, $1.00 U.S. buying $1.25 Canadian, with other early booking specials," said Todd Powell, president of Vacations by Rail. "Canadian Tour Operators and Suppliers are simply not going to advise U.S. Residents to book and pay in Canadian Dollars to reap the benefit of the strong U.S. Dollar. Knowing which currency saves customers the most money is another benefit of booking with Vacations by Rail."
