Finally, I leave for Spain. I wanted to bring with me Euro money. Here’s a bit of the fruit of my sobering fact relevant.
- Always buy your foreign currencies (eg: euro) in a place where there is competition (Downtown Montreal is perfect for that!!!)
- Make phone calls to different foreign exchange offices to find out how much you will cost 100 Euros in Canadian dollars. Don’t forget to say that how you are going to pay (some charge an extra fee for payment by ATM card for example) and tell it to include everything (e.g. transaction fees).
Personally, Calforex’s office on Peel Street in Montreal (1230 Peel Street) was by far the cheapest. They are selling out to do the best prices. For this time it was true in any case. I called the caisses Desjardins, CIBC, the six other exchange offices in the downtown area.
