In the weeks leading up to your trip, it can be fun but stressful creating your to-do lists, researching points of interest, packing, unpacking and re-packing bags. With so much on your mind, it’s easy to forget to manage your mail or grab foreign currency for your trip. But with Canada Post, it only takes a few minutes to organize what you need.

Get foreign currency for your trip 

We’ve got two great solutions to help you take care of your foreign currency needs:

Get foreign cash delivered to you

There’s no need to head to a bank to purchase foreign currency before you leave on your trip. You can order foreign cash through Canada Post, delivered by CIBC, and have it shipped straight to your door – or to the post office of your choice.

Getting cash delivered is easy. Just set up a foreign cash profile, including identity verification; select the amount; type of currency; and whether you prefer large, small or a mix of denominations; and pay by debit or Interac online.

With no fees, great rates and quick delivery, it’s the easiest way to purchase your foreign currency.
