MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 12, 2012) - Aéroports de Montréal, in partnership with International Currency Exchange (ICE), is pleased to announce the launch of Click & Collect, ICE's innovative online foreign currency reservation service, at Montréal Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport.
Click & Collect is a free online service available at www.ice-canada.ca. Customers choose from over 25 major and exotic foreign currencies, then simply select their desired pick-up date and location. ICE is conveniently located throughout the Montreal-Trudeau airport and over 70 other locations across Canada, including St. Catherine St and Peel St. in Montreal. Orders can be placed from 24 hours to a year ahead, with no advance payments or credit cards required. Customers pick up and pay for orders in person.
Benefits include ICE's TravelCash Guarantee, no service charges and free buy-back service. The TravelCash Guarantee gives Click & Collect customers access to ICE's lowest exchange rates, only available to Click & Collect customers. In addition, the bilingual specialists at ICE's signature Currency Concierge Team (accessible toll-free, 7 days a week), provide currency expertise and customer support.
The "Summer iPad Contest", sponsored by ICE, kicks off the travel season and marks the arrival of Click & Collect at Montreal's major airport. All orders placed before August 31st, scheduled for pick-up at ICE's Montreal airport locations, will automatically be entered to win an iPad, (valued at over $570).
"We are thrilled to offer this new service in partnership with our foreign exchange specialists, ICE," said ADM's Vice President Real Estate and Commercial Services, Charles A. Gratton. "Offering new and innovative services that improve the travel experience for our travellers remains our focus and the new Click and Collect option is a most welcome addition."
"We developed Click & Collect to give travellers leaving from Canada a new, innovative option in preparing for their trip. Although the use of debit and credit cards is more widely accepted globally, taking some local foreign currency cash is still a smart choice. Having local travel cash in your pocket means that you can pay for things like tips and taxis upon arrival in your foreign destination. It also means not having to worry about finding an ATM or bank immediately and avoiding unexpected bank and credit card fees when returning home," said ICE Canada's Marketing and Product Manager, Gabrielle Durning.
"We make it easy for Click and Collect users to obtain major currencies such as the Euro, UK Pound, Japanese Yen and US Dollars to the more exotic, like the Brazilian Real, Indian Rupee, Thai Baht or Malaysian Ringgit."
