I’ve been banking with CIBC ever since I was old enough to open up my own bank account. I still remember the day my Mom brought me to CIBC to open up my first bank account! I’ve been a loyal CIBC customer since!
Even though my closest branch is now a bit of a drive from Manitoulin Island, I still do my banking with CIBC. With online banking and e-deposits and e-transfers, banking is easy and convenient.
Speaking of convenience, CIBC Foreign Cash Online is an incredibly convenient service that allows you to order the currency you need online before you travel!
For those who travel internationally like we do, know how convenient this is!
I took my daughter on her first international trip when she was three years old. We went to the Philippines to visit my grandmother in her final days before she passed away. Our journey took us from Manitoulin Island to Toronto, to Vancouver, to Narita (in Tokyo), to Manila and then to San Jose, Batangas. We traveled for almost two days and with the jet lag and a toddler, I remember feeling stressed out about making our connections, wondering how my toddler would fare, and of course, having the proper currency for the countries we were stopping in.
Though I purchased my yen and pesos prior to our trip, being able to do it online would have been much simpler and would have given me more peace of mind. Truth be told, I’m one of those people who prefers to do things online and get things done rather than have to run around and make extra stops to get things accomplished.
This is the same when we take trips to the United States. I always send my husband to the bank to purchase U.S. currency. Amidst all our travel prep, he’s the one who has to run to the bank while I get everything else ready for either New York, Florida, or wherever else we are traveling to.
My husband says that now we’ll be using CIBC Foreign Cash Online.
