Foreign Currency Banknotes
Offering competitive rates, often surpassing those of local financial institutions, Calforex has the ability to meet all of your currency needs. We carry over 50 different foreign currencies, and we offer excellent availability of currencies at each of our branches. In the unlikely event that Calforex does not have a currency in stock, we would be pleased to attempt to order it for you. Please contact your local branch to inquire about currency availability.
Calforex accepts cash and personal Canadian debit cards (subject to transaction limits; please call your bank in advance for larger purchases) for foreign bank note purchases. We do not accept personal cheques or credit cards.
Calforex deals only in notes considered “in circulation” in their respective countries and is not responsible for the removal of notes from circulation by foreign Central Banks. Central Banks may remove their own currency from circulation with little notice, and while Calforex strives to alert our clients when such an event occurs with ample time to exchange their notes, we are subject to the decisions made by our suppliers regarding the purchase and sale of bank notes. Calforex does not guarantee the buyback of out of circulation or outmoded currency notes. Notes that are mutilated or in poor condition may not be accepted.
