Canada is very expensive in terms of travel, to the point that for many the cost is prohibitive to their movement. The reason as my friend Lisa explains is that there are only 35 million people in Canada and so there isn’t the demand. I don’t buy it, the reason as far as I can see is absolute lack of competition. Air Canada is absolutely crazy and has to have the most expensive flight tickets on earth followed extremely closely by so called budget carrier West jet which, in any other country on earth would be a premium airline verified by extortionate prices. Trains in Canada are eye-wateringly expensive and a coach of just 147miles cost me just sly of £100 for one adult and 2 kids, and that was leaving at 5am! Prices for the two coach companies plying the Vancouver – Seattle route are suspiciously similar and stinks…
