    Pre-TC or Post-TC Trip Suggestions

    September is a great time to visit the Canadian Rockies as it’s not too cold and not too hot. Below are some suggestions:

    Hiking: Kananaskis Provincial Park (50 minutes from Calgary) Banff National Park (80 minutes from Calgary). Below are some suggestions.

    • Barrier Lake in the Kananaskis Provincial Park is a nice and easy hike. And it’s close to Calgary.
    • Consolation Lakes is an easy hike (60 m elevation gain) near Moraine Lake.
    • Larch Valley and Sentinel Pass is a great one day hike (7 hours, 732 m elevation gain).

    Hot Springs (Banff Upper Hot Springs)

    Scenic Drive (One Day: Calgary-Banff-Moraine Lake-Lake Louise-Columbia Icefields and drive back)

    • CURRENCY AND BANKS
      Visa and MasterCard (Access or Eurocard) are widely accepted; AmEx cards are useful at more upmarket establishments. In general, all three cards can be used in shops, supermarkets, for train travel, car rentals, autoroute tolls and cash advances. Remember you'll need to know your PIN number (le code) to use a credit card in many hotels, shops and restaurants.
      The cheapest and most convenient way to change money in France is via ATMs; they accept all the major international credit and bank cards. You get the best exchange rate by using a credit card for purchases and a debit card for cash. Travellers cheques are safe and almost universally accepted. Post offices that exchange travellers cheques give a good rate. Major train stations and fancy hotels also have exchange facilities which usually operate in the evening, at the weekend and during holidays, but the rates are generally poor.
      Euro notes come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500. It is often difficult to get change for a €500.00 note. One euro is divided into 100 cents or centimes. Coins of 1, 2 and 5 centimes are copper-coloured; coins of 10, 20 and 50 centimes are gold-coloured; 1 and 2 euro coins are gold-and-silver coloured.
      Exchange rate given by the Universal Currency Converter is now about 1 USD – 0.762 EURO.
    • POST OFFICE
      Letter boxes are yellow. Stamps can be bought in post offices, open Monday to Friday and Saturday morning, as well as in tobacconists.
    • ELECTRICITY
      The electrical voltage in France is 220 volts. France uses the standard European grounded and non-grounded socket, the most common in the world.
    • TAX-FREE
      If you live outside of the EU you can claim taxes back if you have purchase more than 175 € of value. Customs telephone information: + 33 (0)820 024 444.
    • TIPPING
      Leaving a pourboire (tip) is done at your discretion - restaurants and accommodations add a 10-15% service charge to every bill, making a tip unnecessary, but most people leave a few coins if the service is satisfactory.
    • TOBACCO
      Smoking is forbidden in public areas as well as in restaurants and bars
