Dol­lar daze With the loonie down, down, down against the U.S. green­back, avoid any ad­di­tional charges for chang­ing cur­rency, us­ing a U.S. ATM or us­ing your Cana­dian credit card, which prob­a­bly has a hefty fee for each out-of-coun­try pur­chase. You could al­ways take cash, but maybe con­sider a U.S. cur­rency ac­count. Some ad­vice from Marc Smith’s Van­cou­ver-based travel site 30dayad­ven­tures.ca: “Banks like TD Canada Trust and Royal Bank of­fer US Dol­lar ac­counts and credit cards. If you travel to the States on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, I think it makes sense to sign up for an ac­count. Beware of the monthly fees and re­search to find the ac­count that is right for you, but I think this is a smart move.” Source: http://30dayad­ven­tures.ca
