BÉIS Travel officially has a Canadian website. Translation: there’s no more duty fees.

The popular luggage and travel accessory company founded by Vancouver’s own Shay Mitchell and her partner, former MuchMusic VJ and Entertainment Tonight Canada host Matte Babel, first hit the U.S. market in 2018.

The launch of the Canadian site came in response to customer requests due to high currency conversions and shipping costs, per a post on their Instagram account on Oct. 22.

“We’ve been traveling far too long to not go international. First stop… CANADA,” the post read. “We heard you. Shipping select items is about to get easier.”

Some of her go-to sweets in the city are Earnest Ice Cream, Lee’s Donuts in Granville Island, Honey’s in Deep Cove, and Small Victory Bakery in Yaletown, per her social media posts.
