currency in canada
evening fellas ive got a question about cash in canada
can i use u.s dolars while im in canada ?
im only asking because ive still got about 1600 in u.s currency from when i was in south africa in 2010 and when i exchanged aussie dollars back then the exchange was alot sadder then
so if i need canadian dollars i will leave these at home and use them next year when im back in gods country
thanks in advance bluey:confused::confused:
I am a US resident and have traveled to Canada dozens of times. US currency is readily accepted everywhere in Canada. Some places charge exchange rate, but it is so close right now it would be minimal at best. Todays rate is 1 Canadian dollar = 1.0087 US dollars.
Visa and MasterCard are also readily accepted. The credit card company will automatically do the exchange rate for you. Most charge a fee to do this.
no worries thanks stretch
i just wasnt sure and ryan berard must be busy at the moment as it s taken a while for the messages to be answered
Id say get Canadian $s and then what you have left over you can spend along with your left over US$ with your Outfitter in Gods Country, dollars in any form (Except Zim) are sought after by all Africans!!!!!
Stretch is on the money. :)
You will likely get tagged for a few percent exchange rate. Retailers cover themselves the same way you have to with the banks.
ha ha ha you think like my wife ,she said them exact words but she meant she could go shopping instead if hunting ,i think i will go for candaian dollars iwas pretty sure u.s.dollars wouldve been fine
