Pop Quiz! Have you ever arrived at a foreign destination without some local currency in your purse or pocket? How did that work out for you? I’ve been guilty of that frustrating travel fail. Like the time we travelled across the border from Germany to Switzerland, and all of a sudden poof! – the Euros are currency non grata. Swiss Francs only please, and oh did we mention? The banks close early on Saturdays. Sorry!
Proper trip planning is an important part of a successful family holiday. CIBC has just made it easier for you to check off ‘get foreign cash’ from your lengthy Pre-Trip To Do list. How? CIBC’s Foreign Cash Online service offers foreign cash delivery to your door, any branch across Canada, or departure gate (Toronto Pearson Airport only). The best part? No delivery fees.
CIBC Foreign Cash Online is an incredibly convenient service that allows you to order the currency you need online before you travel, and the best part… it’s delivered free, straight to your door or your branch, anywhere in Canada. How great is that? If you live in the GTA, it can also be picked up at the Toronto Pearson Airport location (T1 international departures, post security) before you take off.
Existing CIBC clients can use the Foreign Cash Online services through Online Banking, by clicking “Order Foreign Cash” from the left hand navigation pane. This experience is fully integrated and allows clients to order within a few simple clicks – even better, your exchange rate is locked in as you purchase! Your bank account is debited immediately, and you can get it delivered to your home, Toronto Pearson Airport and any CIBC branch in Canada.
