Re: Canadian Credit cards to travel with

Thanks guys. Our plans have us moving through the US first, then the Bahamas and the rest of the Carib. After that who knows... Either south into S. America, or west through the canal and beyond.

A US-dollar account will do us well for the first little while. Might go that route, but I think just getting one of those zero annual fees/zero foreign exchange fee cards seems to be the easier solution.

To be clear, I plan to operate large in local cash, using my debit card. I'm trying to find a reasonable balance between financial costs and simplicity.
