Make sure you enjoy every moment of your vacation with proper planning before you go. We offer advice to help you see the world, worry-free.
"To stay is to exist. But to travel is to live."
– Gustave Nadaud, French poet and singer-songwriter
Go through a travel agency to plan a vacation tailored to your budget and interests.
Do you have a Mastercard credit card with À la carte travel rewards? Redeem your points at a great rate through our À la carte Travel™ online agency and save on airline tickets and travel packages.
Always take precautions before you travel. You've had to save for your vacation, and it's important to protect your investment. Travel insurance lets you hit the road with peace of mind. Be sure to check whether it's already included with your Mastercard credit card.
Don't want to come up short? Order foreign currency online and have it delivered to your home or a branch of your choice. We make it easy—simply log in to your online bank. Check the exchange rates for your destination to see how much your currency will cost.
Make sure your cards aren't blocked while you're away by sending us a travel notification through your online account. Go to the "Online applications" tab at the top of your online banking page or the "Banking services" menu of the mobile app.
You should also remember to note down important telephone numbers in case of an emergency: Mastercard, CanAssistance travel assistance service, etc.
Remember to pay attention to the withdrawal fees when you use an ABM outside of Canada. See the FAQ to find out which ABMs you can use and how much they charge. You can use THE EXCHANGE network within Canada without network fees or fees from the other financial institution.
