As government taxes on credit/debit card transactions occurring outside my country are high (traveller's checks/cards too), the cheapest way to pay my expenses is to buy Canadian dollars at an exchange store before leaving. The downside is carrying so much money, so I figured I could buy a prepaid debit card once in Canada.
I searched for such cards, but I either found some that require permanent resident status while most others are limited to $500. I'd be interested in a cheap (ie. low/no taxes, easy withdraw when leaving) card with a limit of at least 1500 to CA$2000.
