Whats the Best method of payment to use when visiting Canada?

While traveling in the Creston Valley area, the best way to pay is often with credit or debit cards, as they are widely accepted and usually offer a competitive exchange rate. However, it's important to inform your bank and credit card company of your travel plans before leaving to avoid any issues with transactions being flagged as fraudulent. Also, note that some banks may charge transaction fees on purchases outside your home country, so it's best to check with your bank about any possible fees before arriving.


It's also a good idea to carry some cash for smaller purchases, especially in small businesses where card payments may not be accepted. Note that US Dollars are also widely accepted in Canada, though usually not at as competitive exchange rates as with a card. Thus, it might be a good idea to get some Canadian cash from your bank before arriving or at a bank or Credit Union in Creston when you get here.
