Plan ahead and save on foreign currency
- Order currency for pickup
Save time and money getting currency from TD instead of the airport. Order at least 2 business days in advance so you’ll have cash for transportation, tips and emergencies
- Exchange foreign currency
When you get home, exchange your foreign cash for U.S. dollars
- Find a TD Bank near you with foreign currency
On our locations page, enter your Zip or city/state, then check off Foreign Currency to find a TD with the currency you want. Order by phone or in person
Cards – the safe, convenient way to travel
Save on foreign transaction fees
When you use your TD Bank cards overseas, you’ll pay no foreign transaction fees.
A foreign transaction fee is typically a 3% charge on any transaction. That can really add up: a typical family vacation overseas could cost $5,000 – a possible savings of $150 in fees! That’s another dinner in your favorite city, a babysitter for the kids plus parents’ night out, or even another night at your hotel.
When you save on fees, you can spend more on what makes a vacation great – adventures and memories.

Don't keep all your cash in one place – and use a money belt to protect any cash and documents from pickpockets
- Stay smart, safe and on budget
The TD Connect reloadable prepaid card is a great alternative to cash and helps you stay on budget. Load funds before you go and set up balance alerts through Visa’s prepaid site to stay on track
