Money can be exchanged in banks and specialized exchange offices. Tourists should abandon the services of private individuals who offer to make an exchange. It is also worth noting that payments by credit cards have become very widespread in Calgary, so tourists do not need to carry large amounts of cash.
Tourists, who plan to devote much time to shopping, are recommended to ask sellers to issue special checks at the time of a purchase. These checks will entitle tourists to a tax refund when they leave the country.
Tobacco and alcohol are sold in specialty stores only. Ordinary supermarkets sell low alcohol drinks only. There are tariffs of two types on cigarettes and alcohol - a day and night one. In some trading pavilions these tariffs can vary widely.
Tourists are not recommended to go for a walk to remote areas of the city alone and plan long journeys in the evening. However, it is absolutely safe to walk in the main streets of the city at night. There is plenty of entertainment there, and so they are crowded even late at night.
