If you’re like me (organized and super type A), or opposite of that, (totally last-minute and muddled), you’ll find that convenience when planning to and during travel is overtly paramount.
Especially if you plan to travel in a foreign country, you need to ensure all the details are ironed out and you’re all set at least a week before you depart, leaving you with just the packing to focus on.
Sometimes we tend to forget about the currency exchange, leaving us to withdraw in the foreign country (which will be costly with fees + may be a communication difficulty if you’re not fluent in that country’s native tongue) or scrambling to our bank and dealing with the crazy line-ups adding more stress to our plate. Deep inhale, now exhale. And don’t worry about that part!
Here’s where CIBC Foreign Cash Online comes in!
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. It can also be picked up at the Toronto Pearson Airport location (T1 international departures, post security) before you take off!
Talk about convenience!
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, their exchange rate is locked in as they purchase! Their bank account is debited immediately, and they can get it delivered to their home, Toronto Pearson Airport and any CIBC branch in Canada. Delivery time: Two-to-three days for most urban branch/home locations. Three-to-five business days for most rural locations.
Non-CIBC clients can also order Foreign Cash Online via CIBC’s eCommerce portal fx.cibc.com. This eCommerce solution provides non-clients with the same number of currencies, the only differences are that you pay via credit card and delivery options include home and Toronto Pearson Airport. Delivery time: Two-to-three days for most urban branch/home locations. Three-to-five business days for most rural locations.
CIBC Foreign Cash Online works to provide customers with innovative and convenient ways of ordering/receiving their foreign currency. CIBC is the only financial institution to offer this complete suite of delivery options: with CIBC Foreign Cash Online you have access to up to 75 currencies representing 90 countries. Now, not only can you have cash delivered to Toronto Pearson airport, but you can purchase it last minute on your way out of the country as well!
Whether you are a CIBC customer or not, using the service is easy and you are all set anytime you need foreign cash!
