Why a Canadian should pay in US$$ for hotels located on Canadian soil?
Please read below:
- We are proud to be Canadians. We love Canada. Most of us are living on this graceful and peaceful Canadian soil.
- Most of us are aware regarding GroupOn Toronto / ON / Canada. I have observed that now a days, most of the hotel deals on GroupOn Toronto / ON / Canada (Like Niagara ON, Ottawa ON etc) are available ONLY with payment in US dollars. Disappointingly, GroupOn is not even giving us an option to pay in Canadian $$.
- USA is our closest neighbour and I respect USA as well but, my point is - Why a CANADIAN should pay in US $$ to stay in hotel/s located on a Canadian soil??? Isn't it frustrating?? While making payment is US $$, we end up paying currency exchange, conversion charges, credit card charges and may be additional charges, which we are not even aware of... I We are RFDers, why should we spend our hard earned Canadian $$ in such currency exchange and conversion charges?
- In a way, even being a Canadian, we are not even respecting our own CAD$$ and we are inflating other foreign currency... So very unfortunate...As such, since last few years, our CAD$$ is much southwards than US$$.
- In nutshell, these hotels are on Canadian soil + GropuOn is using GroupOn Toronto/ON/Canada to mislead us (?) + Canadian Citizen BUT, we have to pay in US$$ and, WITHOUT even an option to pay in Canadian $$? Isn't it weird, frustrating and disappointing?
My suggestion is - Why can't GroupOn Toronto / ON / Canada or any such website are not providing us an option to pay in Canadian $$ for any deal/hotels which are located on a Canadian soil??? Any such website MUST give an option to pay in CAD$$.
As such, I have completely stopped buying deals on GroupOn Toronto, if there is no option to pay in Canadian $$.
What do you think? May be, our united voice can reach to GrouOn Toronto and/or any such website and RFDers will be able to make a difference....!!
Happy 150 years, Canada. I love to be a proud a Canadian Citizen.
