Must-sees in Canada

  • Whistler
  • Whistler is quite possibly the most famous ski resort in all of North America. Known for it's epic slopes and stunning views, this is a must-do for ski lovers the world over.
  • Vancouver Island
  • Only accessible by ferry, this remote island is home to quaint towns and epic surf spots. You can also use the island as a jumping off point to reach Alaska.
  • Quebec City
  • Get your French on in the capital of Quebec, where you'll feel more like you're in a pretty little European town than a major North American city.

A deep dive on Canadian dollars

Back in 1821, the Montreal Bank issued the first notes. 20 years later, the first Canadian pounds were born. However by 1858, the Canadian dollar was issued to more closely align with the US dollar, and the Bank of Canada's first banknotes came along in 1934. In 2011 Canada began to produce a more duarble plymer note similar to those used in Australia.

More info on Canadian dollars

The most commonly used Canadian dollar bills are the $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills. There are also $500 and $1000 notes, but these aren't seen often because of their high value.

  1. Check the rates – Use our handy currency rate tracker to check how rates change over time

This was the easiest and most efficient way to exchange currency. I would strongly recommend it to anyone and will definitely use it again myself. Due to the amount of Euros I ordered, they were delivered to my house at no extra cost. How can you beat that??

This company went out of its way to render excellent service.

This company went out of its way to make sure that my daughter, who was flying to Italy alone, was able to promptly obtain her currency for her travel. I am truly grateful for over-the-top service and concern shown.

Regina Ries

Easy and fast

I have used this company twice with no issues. Ordering money or a travelex card online is very easy. Both times picking up the money, the employee was very friendly and helpful. As a frequent traveler, I plan to use this service again. I was able to use my Travelex card in England with zero issues.

I wish the balance would be easier to get while travelling. I kept a running total in my head and was spot on, but was always concerned I might have forgotten something.

It was so easy to get currency prior to travel. The order was delivered in 2 days and the exchange rate was excellent. I would highly recommend. One less thing to deal with in travel, have your currency prior to leaving. Especially if you're visiting a country that is not cc active.
