A deep dive on Canadian Dollars

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

More info about Canadian Dollars

The most commonly used bills in Canadian Dollars are the $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills. There are also $500 and $1000 notes but these are not as often because of their high value.

Travelex was very easy to deal with. I ordered my US money online and it was available to pick up from my local Post Office. The exchange rate was very good and it was very convenient to collect locally. I would definitely use them again.

Great rates and free delivery!

I had a very good experience using Travelex and thought that the free delivery of my currency to my house was an excellent service. Plus, due to the large amount that I converted, I got the best rate possible so I will definitely use them again in the future!

Travelex has been great for ordering my US Dollars currency for my holiday.

Travelex has been great for ordering my US$ foreign currency. The conversion rate is good and I don't pay any commission if I convert a minimum of $1000. The online form-filling process is user-friendly, and I am able to collect my cash at my local post office. I was also happy that the $US currency is in new bills. I cannot nominate the breakdown, but they give a good assortment of different denomination notes. I ended up finding the whole process easier than previously withdrawing cash from my bank and going to an American Express money exchange. I can do my withdrawal and payment all online. Very happy.

Service was good

Service was good. Strange that the money arrived in a Startrack satchel that clearly says on the outside "Warning: This satchel is NOT for shipment of dangerous goods or valuables". I had the equivalent of over 1000AUD in it. Is that not valuable enough??? Also, it's better to not change ALL your cash into foreign currency as I found many local money changers offering somewhat better exchange rates than Travelex.


Everything went well when I placed the …

Everything went well when I placed the order for my Travelex Card and some New Zealand Cash. I called into your Warringah Mall store to collect the cash and the Travelex Card, the staff at the store were helpful and courteous. I returned home to register the card, the registration of the card was simple and straight forward. After registering the card I then attempted to Top Up the funds on my newly registered Travelex Card. The next hour and a half was a nightmare. The first half a dozen times I tried to Top Up the card your system demonstrated the funds we wanted to invest in Aus $ and the corresponding amount in NZ $. We then moved to the next step "How do you want to pay" we clicked BPay and at that point in time your system failed to recognise the card that we had successfully registered. I then rang your help desk and spoke to numerous people and was on the phone (Mobile) for over 1 hour. One of your technical representatives was able to reproduce the error problem. I was passed around to a few different people but nobody could understand why it was happening. While I was talking to your help desk people, an hour had passed. While I was waiting on the phone my wife and I continued to try to get the system to accept our Bpay request. Your help staff were still unsure what was happening. Then all of a sudden the system accepted our Bpay request and the transaction was completed without a problem. We have now made addition Top Up transactions without any problems. When we finally completed the first Top Up transaction I was still on the phone to your help desk. The help desk staff said the transaction failure was related to the website. They thought the website must have been having difficulties. The problems we experienced is the reason that you only received a 4 star rating, instead of a 5 star rating. I am heading to New Zealand Saturday 27th January and I am hoping I have no trouble with my Travelex Card & transactions. I must add your help desk staff were very polite and seemingly did everything the could to rectify the problem. I also have to admit I was becoming more frustrated as I waited on the outer end of the phone. Kind Regards Michael Horne
