  • 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.

I was very pleased with my dealings with Adnon, the Travelex representative at the King of Prussia Mall in King of Prussia, PA. He was very helpful and gave me my euros in a very timely manner.

Easy and Convenient but the exchange rate is the weak link.

Convenience is the prime advantage of your currency exchange. Your exchange rates, on the other hand, are not very good. In my recent trip to Canada, I could have gotten at the airport a much better rate than what Travelex offered. But, as I say, the convenience part is hard to beat.

I ordered Euros for my friends wedding as they are headed to Germany in a few weeks. The currency arrived on time and they were very happy to get a thoughtful gift and when they land in Germany they can hit the ground running! I ordered them for myself when I went to Ireland last year and I hope to order them again next year when I take my girlfriend on another trip!

It was very safe and secure

It was very safe and secure. My only concern was that the date I picked on the calendar was bolded. However, the date selected for me was a different day so I had to take the day off from work. All in all, a great experience and I've used Travelex twice so far.

Judy Barfell

No the best exchange rate but more…

No the best exchange rate but more convenient than traveling with a bundle of cash. Web page a bit difficult to navigate and log in, especially if you are on the move traveling. But it can be done.

Pros and Cons

Pros: Ease of access internationally, easy reloading process, accepted in most places. No fees. Cons: Very high exchange rate fees, exchange rates not optimal for large amounts.

Anon

Super convenient

Lower fees than would have been at the airport and fast home delivery! Note on delivery: somebody must be home to sign for the package so plan ahead

Lynn

Why not an immediate email receipt?

I was very concerned that I ordered my currency, paid with my credit card and then got no receipt or email as proof of payment immediately after. I had to email to enquire. Wasn't happy about giving my card details and having nothing in return.
