Preparing for Ottawa: Tips & Hints

It should be noted that currency can be exchanged only in large banks, most of the bank departments provide the currency exchange service only to regular customers. It is better to exchange the currency at home before a departure or back up a journey with enough quantity of traveler checks.
2. Alcohol drinks as well as tobacco goods are sold only in specialized stores. These types of products feature two rates – daytime and nighttime. In some stores these rates can sufficiently differ. It should be noted that tobacco goods and alcohol drinks are sold only to adults. That is why in order to avoid misunderstanding and troubles one should have an authorized passport copy by oneself.
3. Being on shopping and having too much of purchases one can employ courier service to take the haul to a hotel. For a small cash reward the haul will be supplied to a place in the shortest period of time.
