Travelex Advises 2010 Winter Olympic Visitors to Use Canadian Dollars
NEW YORK, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ — As a global leader in currency exchange services, Travelex is informing all 2010 Winter Olympic visitors that the Olympic venues will only be accepting Canadian dollars and Visa(TM) (the Olympic sponsor). To assist customers, Travelex has introduced “Winter Games Deals” currency Value Packs designed to save customers time and money. In Vancouver, Travelex is partnered with the Travel Currency Exchange located in Marlin Travel agencies which are conveniently located near many Olympic venues. Most of these stores will be open seven days a week with extended hours in order to accommodate customer needs. Additionally, service fees will be waived for customers presenting a ticket to the games, a volunteer badge, or athlete identification card.
Due to the heavy influx of visitors to Vancouver during the Olympic Games, travelers are advised that using Canadian Dollars will help to streamline their local transactions even when outside of the Olympic venues. When faced with long lines and large crowds, Canadian dollars will be the fastest and most hassle-free form of payment for visitors attending the games.
The 2010 Winter Olympic Games attracts a global audience, and Travelex aims to assist these visitors with their currency exchange needs. “We want to help travelers spend more quality time at the events and less time hassled with foreign exchange concerns,” said Patricia Bradshaw, Regional Sales Director for Travelex Canada Ltd.
