Taxes

Québec has two taxes: the 5% federal goods andservices tax (GST), and the 9.975% Québec sales tax (QST). An accommodation tax of 3.5% per night/per room also applies in the Laurentians.

Tips

In Québec, tipping is de rigueur in restaurants, bars, taxis and hair salons. The amount, which is not included in the bill, generally represents 10% to 15% of the total bill before taxes. For quick tip calcultations, Québecers normally add up both taxes. Tipping bellhops or porters is at your discretion (generally $1 per bag carried).
