Thinking of visiting our neighbors to the north this summer? More than 35 million people visit Canada each year.

Before you head out the door, make sure you bring a credit card with no foreign transaction fees. Otherwise, you’ll get hit with a fee (usually 3%) every time you buy something in Canada.

Here’s our top picks for the best credit cards from our partners for use in Canada, all with no foreign transaction fees:

Barclaycard Arrival Want 2x miles on travel and dining purchases? Barclaycard Arrival World MasterCard earns 2 miles per $1 on travel and dining purchases. Plus, you earn 20,000 miles (worth $200 off your next trip), after you make $1,000 or more in purchases in the first 90 days from account opening. There is no annual fee.

To be sure, a strong Canadian dollar, increased border security, and high gas prices can be discouraging, but Canada is still a great place to visit. Just remember to visit the State Department’s website on traveling to Canada for up-to-date travel advisories.
