School’s almost over! Only nine more school pick-ups in that crazed parking lot, not that I’m counting. It’s finally time to sit down with the big family calendar and do one of my very favourite things ever; plan those summer vacations. I foresee road trips and shopping excursions to the United States, and even an adventure to somewhere tropical! All of these little adventures come after a little bit of day dreaming and a whole lot of planning. The key to a successful holiday? You have to be organized! Every good trip starts with a great “To Do” list. Now as much as I would like to be able to say I’m always fully prepared for every trip, that’s just not true. The truth is, life is busy and no matter how hard I try I often find myself scrambling at the last minute, running around to pick up the dog food I’ve forgotten for the sitter, the new sunscreen for the kids, or trying to figure out how to get my hands on some foreign currency.
This is why I’m so happy to be able to introduce you to CIBC Foreign Cash Online. It’s a service that will help scratch one more thing off that “To Do” list. This convenient and easy to use service allows you to order any currency you might need online before you travel. Insider tips; you don’t have to be a CIBC customer to use this service and your ordered currency will be delivered right to your door. Perfection.
Here are some reasons I love the idea of CIBC Foreign Cash Online:
*Ease of use. They will deliver currency right to your door. (or to Toronto Pearson Airport location (T1 international departures, post security). Worth noting, this is not the trans border crossing that is used for the USA
*It’s an easy way to check the rates on foreign currency and figure out how much you will need for your trip.
*Not only do I love to travel with local currency, but I love to have a little bit upon return. It can be a great memento of a vacation. I still have a few Pesos from my very first trip to Mexico.
*It’s innovative; CIBC is the ONLY financial institution to offer this complete suite of delivery options.
*CIBC Foreign Cash Online has access to over 70 currencies. Delivery can be made to your home, so I can do other things while my delivery comes to me!
