Credit Cards in Canada

In Canada, major credit cards such as MasterCard, Visa and American Express are widely accepted.

Without these cards, you will find it hard or impossible to rent a car, book a room or order tickets over the phone. However, note that some credit card companies charge a ‘transaction fee’ (around 3% of whatever you purchased); so you must check with your provider to avoid surprises. Always carry copies of your credit card numbers separately from the cards and immediately report lost or stolen cards.
