Does the Vancouver airport (YVR) accept US currency? We will be taking a cruise to Alaska and they will drop us off at Vancouver and take us straight to the airport. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to visit the area so we’ll just be waiting at the airport so just trying to figure out if the airport accepts US currency for us to grab lunch before our flight. Thank you!
