  • Peak travel period - Recommendations

    Tips for travelers during this busy season

    Montreal-Trudeau International Airport is gearing up for a busy season with a major resumption of flight operations.
    This high volume of traffic combined with a shortage of manpower could result in longer than usual wait times, especially during peak periods.

    Here are a few tips to help you prepare....

    Before you leave - Departure

    • Be sure to check your flight schedule at least 24 hours before your departure/heading to the airport by visiting the ADM website or contacting your airline company.
    • Reserve your parking lot in advance to ensure you have a spot for the duration of your trip.
    • Plan your travel and traffic patterns before heading to the airport.
    • Prepare your carry-on luggage well for the security checkpoint to facilitate the process.
    • If you are bringing wrapped gifts, they should be placed in your checked baggage as gifts in carry-on baggage should not be wrapped.

    Upon return

    • Complete your customs and immigration declaration 72 hours prior to your arrival in Canada using ArriveCAN to accelerate the process.
    • Pay for your parking online (if available) using your cell phone by scanning the QR code on your parking ticket and follow the instructions.
    Tip: Arrive early !
    • Please arrive at the airport 3 hours before your departure time, regardless of your destination.
    • As soon as you have completed your check-in, we suggest that you go through security immediately.
    • To take advantage of accelerate access, you can now make use of two new free services offered at YUL:
    1. (For flights to the U.S.) Mobile Passport Control an application that allows you to submit your passport information and customs declaration in advance. Enjoy a priority line at the airport and save time!
    2. (For domestic & international flights) YUL Express an online booking platform that provides a schedule for customs clearance.(It is still in pilot form and may offer limited capacity)
  • What makes Voyages Bergeron different from other travel agencies?

    Voyages Bergeron has been in business since 1950. We are located in Montreal and Longueuil. Voyages Bergeron has been a recognized and respected name in the tourism industry for 70 years, thanks to the trust our customers place in us.

    Over the years, we've weathered a number of world events, including the 2 Gulf Wars, SARS, H1N1 and September 11, and in every case, we've come through them all. Many of the travel consultants on our team have lived through these events and could tell you that they all had a major impact on our lives at the time, and yet we're still here today. 

    What these disasters have taught us is to be more resilient. We are an industry that is sensitive to the events that shake our planet, be they political, climatic or health-related, and we are unfortunately used to being among the first to be affected. This has given us great resilience, and over the years we have learned to always be ready for what comes next...

    Our job, our passion, is to make you dream of discoveries, to make you experience emotions and to fill your head with memories. It's our life, the choice we've made to be dream merchants.

    And it's as enthusiasts that we're here for you today, and that we'll be here for you afterwards, and that you can count on our team, our family, to be with you for at least another 70 years! 

  • Are there service fees at Voyages Bergeron?

    Fees are charged when changes are made to a reservation. Therefore, when there is a name correction,
    addition of passengers, a name change, a change of departure date/hotel or destination, change of hotel room occupancy,
    a change of credit card or methods of payment used at the time of booking or if the final payment date is exceeded, a change fee
    of $100 + taxes will be charged.

    This fee will also be charged for a cancellation request, whether a full or partial refund by the tour operator. 

  • What are CPO fees?

    These are mandatory additional fees of 0.10% ($1.00 per $1000) for the contribution to the Compensation Fund for Customers of Quebec Travel Agents. These fees will be automatically added to your invoice for all new bookings. The FICAV contribution no longer needs to be collected as of January 1, 2024.

    These fees fall under the jurisdiction of the Office de la Protection du Consommateur (Consumer Protection Office). Therefore, you may receive a refund directly from the Compensation Fund of our agency if a service provider, such as an airline carrier, is no longer able to fulfill its obligations (bankruptcy).

  • Do you have all-inclusive formulas at the agency that are not on your website?

    All of our all-inclusive packages are available on our website. Our website is also our best search tool.

  • Is it safe and secure to make a reservation on the Internet?

    SSL technology codes your credit card number, name, address and telephone number before it is transmitted over the Internet. This process gives electronic transactions the same security guarantees as purchases made by telephone. In the final step of making your reservation, note the padlock symbol in the upper left corner of the webpage address bar. That symbol indicates it is a secure transaction.

  • Can my trip be paid using the credit card of a person who will not be travelling with me?

    We must also make sure that your infant can stay at your hotel. Some hotels are adult-only, and some will not accept more than one child per room.

    Attention: If your infant will be turning 2 years of age during your trip, he or she has to be considered as a child before leaving and must therefore pay the child rate.

  • What happens with my trip in case of a hurricane or natural disaster?

    When a natural disaster strikes, it is difficult to predict damage. According to recommendations from the Government of Canada, the tour operator is responsible for cancelling your trip and changing your destination to repatriate you, etc. The tour operator will decide if the destination will be changed or if you will be reimbursed for the trip in totality or in part, or if it will give you a travel credit. The tour operator can also decide that the trip is nonrefundable.

  • Who picks me up at the destination airport, and brings me back to the airport when I leave?

    Your representative at the destination is aware of your arrival and will be waiting for you at the airport. The person will be clearly identified as your tour operator’s representative. That person will tell you which bus to get on to take you to your hotel, and will give you the schedule for an information session to help you find out what is available at the hotel. He or she should also be able to answer any questions you may have.

    The procedure is similar on the day you leave. Your representative will let you know the time and place to wait at your hotel for the bus that will take you back to the airport for your departure.

  • How much and who should I tip?

    We advise you to ask this question to the representative at your destination. He or she will know about tipping customs at the hotel. Certain hotels categorically refuse tips, whereas others have no rules about tipping. Tipping is at your discretion and can be distributed among the quality services that you’ve received. You may even see tips given in the form of clothing, hygiene products, school supplies, objects, etc., particularly in Cuba.

    In certain hotels, tips are included in your package. Usually room-cleaning staff are not part of this tipping package. You may want to leave a small amount each day or a lump sum at the end of the trip, depending on whether you always have the same person taking care of your room.

  • Who do I see about taking an excursion?

    If you are interested in taking an excursion, you can speak with the representative at your destination. They will be able to give you information and book something for you.

    Certain tour operators sell excursions here, before your departure. Contact us to find out more.

  • What time do I have to leave my hotel room?

    International hotel check-out time is 12:00 noon. In certain hotels it may be 11 a.m. If your return flight is in the evening, ask the hotel about what arrangements they offer to accommodate their guests. There may be a courtesy room for people with late departures. If your room is available, the hotel might rent it to you for a few hours for a modest fee.

    Unfortunately you travel agent cannot organize this for you before departure.
