Traveller’s Tip: Book cars and accommodations in advance.

10 Mar 2016

If you have plans to visit Newfoundland and Labrador this summer, there are a couple of things you should know:

The first, make sure you book at least some of your accommodations in advance. This is the height of convention season as well as touring – and early indicators are showing that this year there is an increased interest with travellers booking further in advance compared to previous years.

The second thing you have to keep in mind – with so much to see in this off-the-beaten-path location – be sure to book car rentals early. Please also ensure when you are booking your car rental in the St. John's area, that you are booking for St. John's Newfoundland & Labrador (YYT), and not Saint John New Brunswick (YSJ). That way you can concentrate on the things that really matter when you arrive here…like the incredible scenery, the fresh coastal breeze, the delicious food, and how to wrangle more vacation time so you can extend your stay just a little bit longer.
