All transactions carried out on Bonjour Québec.com involve directly and exclusively the tourism service providers presented therein and their customers.

Any user making a reservation through Bonjour Québec.com agrees to comply with the terms and conditions for making, changing and cancelling reservations, as described by the service provider in question at the time of reservation.

Fraudulent reservations of any kind are strictly prohibited. Users also understand that any abuse or excessive use of the services offered by Bonjour Québec.com could cause them to be refused future access.
Even though Bonjour Québec.com offers no guarantees concerning the tourism products and services available from the service providers presented therein, it wishes to protect all users who buy such products and services. Thus, all service providers wishing to offer their products and services through Bonjour Québec.com must agree to honour all transactions as announced and sold via the Web site. Any failure to meet this commitment as reported to Bonjour Québec.com in the form of a written complaint may lead to a review of the complaint by a tourism ethics committee created by the Québec tourism minister. Through its subsequent investigation of the complaint, the committee may recommend that Bonjour Québec.com exclude or suspend the service provider in question from its Web site.
Any user who believes he has received mistreatment in the course of carrying out a commercial transaction with a service provider through Bonjour Québec.com may address a complaint to firstname.lastname@example.org . In no way does this provision make Tourisme Québec and Bell Canada liable concerning such a complaint. The customer service department of Bonjour Québec.com will, however, follow up on the complaint with the service provider involved and, if necessary, will submit the complaint to the tourism ethics committee.
The price paid for each product or service reserved or bought on-line is the price that appears for that product or service.
On-line reservations of tourist products and services are subject to applicable Québec and Canada taxes, which are included in the total price. Goods purchased for home delivery are subject to any applicable taxes transport and delivery charges; these are to be paid over and above the advertised price.
Unless otherwise specified, the prices listed in Bonjour Québec.com are in Canadian dollars.

Changing or Cancelling a Reservation
All users who reserve a product or service via Bonjour Québec.com and wish subsequently to change or cancel their reservation acknowledge that they have entered into a commercial relationship with the service provider in question, and not with Bonjour Québec.com. Users must therefore comply with the conditions for changing or cancelling reservations, as specified by the provider at the time the reservation was made.
