Save time when planning your next trip with #CIBCtravelcash @CIBC

sponsored by CIBC

We often plan a trip to cross the border, do a little shopping or grab lunch and spend a few hours away. Lately with the dollar being what it is we have not been traveling to the USA as often as I would like. Our last minute trips have been more planned out,  calculated and budgeted. After all when traveling with children every dollar counts and sticking to a budget is important. Before we would cross-over and pull off to the side before going through customs to exchange our money. Too many times we would pull up and the exchange office would be so busy and the self serve exchange ATMs would be out of money. Yes, you an exchange rate but how current is it, and good luck finding a parking spot and getting back into line smoothly to go over. Even when flying I am really bad at waiting until the last minute and exchanging money at the airport, causing me so many unneeded headaches.

Have you ever done this before? Exchange at the airport when you land at your destination? Good luck finding the place to do the exchange in the huge airport you only ever go in when you are rushed and better luck hoping they are open. I had the worst time exchanging money at the airport, last minute when we went to Mexico. Luckily I had a bit of currency in my purse and was told I could exchange at the hotel. It would have made me feel better to have had it all ahead of time. I was able to exchange but paid a premium to do so and the language difference caused some issues for me.

When traveling with your family you are never too prepared. This means making sure you have enough cash on hand in the correct currency for your destination. When driving and flying you are faced with many obstacles and no matter how well you plan things out, something will always cause you a delay. To avoid the stress and delay of exchanging money at the last minute CIBC has a wonderful service all can use. Even if you are not a client you can use their service to exchange money easily without headaches ahead of time safely and conveniently.

  55. What a great service!! Traveling out of the country can be so stressful, what a great way not to worry about the currency. Love the home delivery!

  57. This is definitely a useful service. I tend to just use ATMS and contact my bank before my trip and just withdraw cash while there. I worry about having a lot of cash, so this service is a good alternative.

  58. I have never traveled out of the country, to be honest. What a great way to not have to worry about currency.

  59. I have not traveled out of the country in over 10 years! This is a great service and will keep it mind next time go abroad.

  60. I hope I get to travel out of country soon. If I do I will look into this service.

  62. CourtneyLynne says

    Omg what a great service!!!! I always make sure to get cash before a trip! It’s just easier that way!

  63. We have tons of ways to get a better trip planned. Thanks for this advice. We love travel!
