Destination BC is currently modernizing the HelloBC website to be a high performance, mobile first, traveller focused digital
platform. The goal is to assist travellers to better plan and book a BC trip while creating handoffs to our industry partners who
can close the sale.
As such, the partnership between Destination BC and Check In Canada will be completed as of December 31, 2017. If you are currently
listed in the Enhanced Booking Option, you will receive your final invoice and statistics up to and including December 31, 2017, in
February 2018. Starting January 1, 2018, live rates and availability will no longer appear on HelloBC.com, however your property's
Book Now button will still redirect consumers to the booking engine page of your website.
