                  Benefits of planning ahead

                  It’s always smart to carry some of the local currency, so you can pay for necessities like transportation, gratuity tips – typically between 10% and 20% in Canada – and food and drink when you arrive.

                  Buying Canadian Dollars in advance also means you won’t need to waste time looking for an ATM or be charged for cash withdrawals – meaning you can get on with enjoying your holiday.

                  It’s also worth remembering exchange rates can fluctuate. When you buy your Canadian Dollars in advance, you know what rate you are going to get. If you decide to buy currency or withdraw cash when you arrive in Canada, the exchange rate may be different.

                    Get your currency when it’s convenient for you

                    Use Click & Collect and arrange to pick up your Canadian Dollars as part of your weekly shop, either from a Tesco Travel Money bureau or selected customer service desks. Or, you could try our home delivery service – free on all online orders of £500 or more.

                    Exchange rates can change throughout the day and will vary depending on whether you are buying in store, online or over the phone.

                      Handy information about Canadian Dollars (CAD)

                      Canadian Dollars fast facts

                      • Single dollars are also referred to as “loonies”, which comes from the name of the aquatic bird on the reverse of the coin.
                      • Two-dollar coins are therefore known as “toonies”, based on the words loonie and two.

                      Currency denominations

                      Canadian Dollar Cents: 5¢,10¢, 25¢, 50¢

                      Canadian Dollars: C$1, C$2, C$5, C$10, C$20, C$50, C$100

                      Remember to keep any leftover Canadian Dollars so you can exchange them on your return.

                      Tesco Travel Money bureaux can buy and sell bank note denominations of C$5 or more. Most places in the UK don’t exchange Cents – so it might be an idea to try and spend them before coming home. Or you could hang onto them as a reminder of your trip.
