ST. JOHN’S, Nfld. — It was nice while it lasted, but the fuel surcharge relief provided by Marine Atlantic on trips to Newfoundland since April has come to an end.
The ferry service, which reviews its fuel surcharges quarterly, has added a 6% surcharge on trips between North Sydney and Newfoundland, according to local media.
The surcharge was at 9% until April when it was removed altogether. Last year as fuel prices peaked, the ferry provider was charging a fuel surcharge of over 25%.
The latest surcharge takes effect July 17.
