Sales Taxes

Quebec has a 5% GST (Goods and Services Tax), and a 9.975% PST (Provincial Sales Tax) . These taxes are applicable to most goods, purchased gifts, food/beverages and services in Quebec. Visitors from outside Canada may be entitled to claim a rebate of the HST paid. For rebate forms and more details, visit Canada Revenue Agency.

In addition of the GST and PST, the Quebec City hotels will add a Lodging Tax of 3.5% to your final hotel room bill.


Tipping

Some hotels include tips or gratuities with group programs to simplify bookkeeping. This usually includes gratuities for housekeeping, bell service and food service. In a hotel, bell service should be tipped about $1 per bag, and housekeeping $1 to $5 dollars a day (in proportion to your room rate). Visitors should know that the standard tip in restaurants is 15%, with 20% for very outstanding service. Tip taxis about 10%, and a dollar a bag they carry for you (not just unload), or at the very least round fares up to the nearest dollar. Tipping is customary in bars, restaurants, salons/spa and taxis.
