Montréal, May 5, 2009
Together with Travelex – one of the world’s largest retail foreign exchange companies – Marlin Travel and TravelPlus participating agencies, part of Transat Distribution Canada Network, are now offering their customers two unique options to buy travel currency when booking their vacations: My Travel Wallet© and CashPax™.
My Travel Wallet is an online application from which travellers can access a full range of travel money products and services. Furthermore, clients can enjoy the convenience of foreign currency or travellers cheques delivered directly to their doorstep. CashPax consists in envelopes containing small amounts of prepackaged currency. Travellers can obtain CashPax envelopes at Marlin Travel and Travel Plus participating agencies.
These two new convenient added-value services intend to help clients cut down their pre-vacation to-do list and save time. Also, by purchasing travel currency before departing, vacationers avoid the hassles of having to buy foreign currency abroad. They even have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the currency before they use it and track fluctuating exchange rates.
Travel currency can either be purchased in-agency, at participating Marlin Travel or TravelPlus agencies, or online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Visit www.marlintravel.ca or www.travelplus.ca for more information on Travel Currency Exchange services.
