Taxes and gratuities
In Quebec, there are two taxes applicable on all the transformed goods and on all the services. These taxes are the GST (Goods and Services Tax) and the PST (Provincial Sales Tax). The GST is 5% and the PST is 7.5% and is added on top of the GST. Most of the tourist regions also charge a lodging tax of $2 or $3 per room per night, to which are added the GST and PST.
Gratuities in Quebec are not included in the prices. At the restaurant and in bars, you need to leave a tip of about 15% of the bill.
Electric current in Quebec is 110 volts and outlets cannot receive European plugs. If you come from Europe, you will then need to buy an adapter.
