Should I Buy Canadian Dollars Now?


Buying Canadian Dollars before you go avoids costly international exchange rates and ATM transaction fees. Bear in mind that most ATMs in Canada charge between $1 and $9 per transaction and some banks may also charge international transaction fees [1]


Is Canada expensive?


In 2023, Canada was ranked the 21st most expensive country in the world [2]. How much money you need depends on which province in Canada you’re visiting. The big cities including Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa are significantly more expensive than smaller cities such as Quebec and Saint John and the rural areas of Canada [3].



Exchange Rate


Finding a good exchange rate for your money is all about planning. You may find you’ll get less for your money if you buy foreign currency at the airport, as it will usually be at the most expensive rate. With that in mind, it’s best to get ahead of the game and buy Canadian Dollars well in advance of your trip, so you can take advantage of lower exchange rates.


Great British Pounds to Canadian Dollars (GBP to CAD)

When you buy Canadian Dollars from an Asda Money Travel Bureau, you’ll benefit from our Price Promise. We’ll beat the exchange rate of any competitors within 5 miles to make sure you get the most competitive exchange rate available.
