Now is the time to take a trip to the Great White North

[/mk_fancy_title][vc_column_text title=”” disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″ animation=”” el_class=””]A trip to the Canadian Rockies is more affordable than it has been in over a decade with the exchange rate sitting at levels not seen since 2004.

It may just be the perfect time to travel north: explore Banff National Park, ski almost 8,000 acres of terrain with 2 gondolas, 26 chairlifts and 30 feet of light powder annually – all while cashing in on a favorable exchange rate.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text title=”” disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″ animation=”” el_class=””]

To give you a better idea of how far the US dollar will stretch on your trip north, here are quantitative and qualitative representations of where the exchange rate sits currently:

Tips for adopting our colorful currency

[/mk_fancy_title][vc_separator color=”white” align=”align_center” style=”” border_width=”4″ el_width=”80″][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][vc_row fullwidth=”false” attached=”false” padding=”0″ visibility=”” animation=””][vc_column border_color=”” visibility=”” width=”1/1″][vc_empty_space height=”32px”][vc_column_text title=”” disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″ animation=”” el_class=””]

While most Canadian businesses will happily accept your American dollars, they may not always provide you with the best exchange, which means you aren’t making the most of the favorable exchange rate.  So be ready to exchange or pay with credit in order to keep more of your all-green American bills in the bank.

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner attached=”false” padding=”0″ visibility=””][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”35px”][vc_column_text title=”” disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″ animation=”” el_class=””]1)            Plan ahead and exchange some money before you arrive. Visit your local bank at home where they can typically find you the best exchange rate.

2)            When in Canada, use a currency exchange counter or Canadian bank if you need additional money exchanged. Currency exchange counters and local banks are plentiful in Banff & Lake Louise.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”35px”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”32px”][vc_column_text title=”” disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″ animation=”” el_class=””]3)            Need more cash? Use one of our many conveniently located  ATM machines to draw some Canadian dollars directly from your US bank account. (Remember, bank ATM machines will always provide better  value over those privately owned machines found in restaurant lobbies)

4)            Use your credit card for payments.  You may want to check with your credit card company on associated fees as some cards are better than others when it comes to exchange rate fees.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”35px”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_empty_space height=”32px”][mk_fancy_title tag_name=”h2″ style=”false” color=”#666666″ size=”30″ font_weight=”inherit” font_style=”inhert” txt_transform=”none” letter_spacing=”3″ margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”18″ font_family=”none” font_type=”” align=”center” animation=”” el_class=””]
