Travel Safely and Smoothly In Your Golden Years


Who’s to say travel is just for the young? Nowadays there are no age limits to travel – be it for some well-deserved R&R, family visits or bucket list destinations, seniors can now enjoy the modern world of travel with a number of smart, safe and convenient banking solutions to effectively manage money and their spending while abroad.

How To Carry Cash While Traveling

Gone are the days of traveler’s cheques, money belts, undercover leg wallets and other cumbersome apparatuses designed to conceal your travel money and fend off pickpockets. With a single CIBC Air Canada® AC conversion™ Visa* Prepaid Card, you simply load online anytime, and carry up to 10 different currencies at once. Unlike credit cards that come with hefty transaction fees on foreign currency purchases, you simply spend like cash but with the convenience of a card. What’s more, your card can be used anywhere VISA is accepted and at ATMs worldwide. Not only can you lock-in favourable exchange rates before you travel, you’re protected by chip and PIN security with global emergency card replacement if lost or stolen.

Foreign Cash Made Easy

We know adventurers still need some foreign cash on hand for those day-to-day purchases like your cappuccino in Florence, your taxi in Williamsburg, food market purchases in Bangkok, or souvenirs from your Alaskan cruise. Now you can skip the bank line and inflated rates from third party foreign currency providers. With CIBC, simply order your travel money online and enjoy free delivery to your home or a CIBC Banking Centre near you.

Sending Money Around The World

Whether you need to send money to family or friends abroad, make cross-border remittances for a business or to manage expenses of a home, say goodbye to inconvenient and costly wire transfers and hello to CIBC Global Money TransferTM. Now you can transfer money to over 50 countries including the United States, Europe, Australia, China, India and more – and all with zero transfer fee. Funds will be safely deposited in the recipient’s account in their local currency, and usually within one business day. What’s more, as a leading global bank based in Canada, CIBC provides competitive exchange rates on each and every transaction.
