Does the Vancouver airport (YVR) accept US currency? We will be taking a cruise to Alaska and they will drop us off at Vancouver and take us straight to the airport. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to visit the area so we’ll just be waiting at the airport so just trying to figure out if the airport accepts US currency for us to grab lunch before our flight. Thank you! ~Candy
I am flying WestJet from HNL to YVR. Can I buy duty free at the airport from a merchant of my choice or is my only option to buy it on the flight from WestJet? Either way, are you charged in Canadian funds at HN? I'm pretty certain West Jet purchases are Canadian funds. Thank you.
There is duty free in the airport that you can use with your boarding pass bound for Canada. That will be charged in USD.
Do not buy anything from the Boutique i store if you are going to be away longer then 14 days as that is their return time policy if something does not work. I work up north three weeks at a time and had bought a defective Stylus and when I explained my situation by calling the store I was told they had to stick to a 14 day return policy in person even though I had called them in the 14 day time period.
I was very disappointed when I called to inquire if I could order food over the phone for a friend staying at the airport and the reply I received was "sorry can't do it bye bye" and then was hung up on.
