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.

It was easy

It was easy. Choose the amount and choose when you want it delivered and done. And the exchange rate was reasonable. It was great be able to arrive in country with cash in hand and not have to search for an ATM. I was so glad I had done it because it was very hard to find an ATM that would take our cards.

Currency shipped directly to home at minimal shipping cost

I had not traveled internationally for a few years. When I started doing so again I had forgotten what a hassle and expense it can be to obtain foreign currency. Then I remembered Travelex. I got on line and looked them up. I was able to have currency for two different countries shipped directly to my home. It arrived very quickly with minimal shipping cost.

Money exchange

Lower cost than other money exchanges and safe way to exchange money. We'll hit the ground running with local currency in hand. Took a little more time than I expected because of verification with credit card company.

No more nearby location.

4 stars only because you no longer have a downtown Sacramento location where I can pick up my currency. Otherwise, great.
