I brought Canadian currency travelers checks with me from America, because of the safety involved.
I was greately dismayed to discover that MANY places in Toronto didn't know how to handle travelers checks. That was a great shock!
One place even said, "I don't think we take this kind of money." My reply, "What...you don't take Canadian CASH!"
In every case, except one, we had to wait for managers to come up and they all knew how to handle them. You would think a city that gets as many tourists as Toronto could handle travelers checks.
Someone needs to put cashiers through better training.
Other than that inconvenience, our trip in Toronto was EXCELLENT!
