Tourists

TouristsTourist exchange rates typically vary due to the relationship you have with the place where you are exchanging your currency. If you are exchanging your cash in your local bank in Canada, prior to travelling overseas, chances are you will be awarded a more favourable exchange rate as the bank values your business and most likely has a sizeable reserve of the foreign currency in stock.

If you decide to exchange your currency in a bank in a foreign country, or through a convenience store in a touristy area, it is much more likely that the tourist exchange rates that you will be offered will be marked up.
