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.

The service was great in the U.S

The service was great in the U.S. however we had some issues contacting anyone from abroad. We traveled to Italy and only found one Travelex ATM. The card worked great at all merchants. A few of the bank ATMs would not take the card. The couple that we were traveling with had some real issues with reloading funds and could not reach any tech support. I was able to load my card with no problem. I would definitely use and recommend this card again.

Overall it was quick and easy

Overall it was quick and easy, only 24 hour notice was given, my money was ready to go when I got there, and they gave it to me in a variety of bills. It does cost a little more money than getting it through the bank, but way less notice was needed, so for me it was worth the extra cost

Very helpful staff

Very helpful staff. It was a little far for me to drive. I probably would have saved a little money if I had waiting to get cash because of the exchange rate. Because this was my first time, I needed the peace of mind.

Easy to use.

I found the ease of setting up currency on the MC very easy. The pin number gave me some heartburn at first however, the online FAQ's assisted me in getting my pin number by calling. I reloaded the card once while overseas and that was a breeze. I would do this again next time I travel overseas.
