More hotels added to quarantine program list – and traveller's can now book direct

More properties have been added to the federal government’s list of quarantine hotels in the four designated cities.


Problems with the hotel quarantine program have included long hold times, up to 10 hours according to some reports.


The government site, which serves as an info resource for travellers looking to book the mandatory 3-night quarantine hotel stay, went live on Feb. 18 with a limited number of hotels: 2 in Calgary; 1 in Vancouver; 4 in Toronto and 4 in Montreal.

And to add traveller's are being encouraged to book direct, to ease the high volume of calls coming into the call centre.


It’s your responsibility as the traveller to ensure that you have a confirmed government-authorized hotel booking prior to boarding a flight coming to Canada.


Enforcement action in Canada, including a fine of $3,000, may result if you don’t provide evidence of pre-paid accommodation at a government-authorized hotel prior to boarding.


The mandatory 3-night reservation at a government-authorized hotel is a fully pre-paid, non-refundable rate. It will be charged to the credit card provided at the time of booking.


However now from the looks of things several hotels on the expanded list are accepting online bookings. Also it appears travellers can now call the hotels directly for bookings.
