Prepaid/travel cards

Typical time required: 1-3 days

Here are a few reasons why you need to get a prepaid card:

  • Your initial expenses in Canada will undoubtedly amount to a large sum. You will have to pay for you rent, food, travelling, and other basic expenses, but your bank account might have certain limitations on the amount of cash you can initially withdraw. Thus, we strongly recommend that you carry your money in a prepaid/travel card as it is safer and more convenient than carrying large amounts of hard cash around with you.
  • Prepaid/travel cards will aid you with your everyday expenditures until you have your Canadian bank’s debit card. It can be used at any place having electronic payment counters (buses, restaurants, etc.) without any additional service fee.

There are many services/offers you can go for, but we would recommend the prepaid/travel cards offered by Thomas Cook or Cox & Kings. The instructions for buying and recharging a prepaid/travel card is relatively simple. It is also PIN protected. You can check the remaining amount in your card online. These prepaid/travel cards work for almost all online payments.
