What is a Bank Draft?
A Bank Draft is a physical means of providing payment to a third party. Funds are immediately taken from your RBC bank account in exchange for the draft, guaranteeing the funds for the recipient.
Bank drafts can be used to make a payment to a third party, both in Canada and abroad1 and are available for a fee of $9.95 each. Some banking packages include a number of free bank drafts per year, so be sure to review your account features prior to requesting one.
Currencies available for brank drafts: CAD, USD, GBP, and Euro.
To order a bank draft2, go to any RBC Royal Bank branch in Canada.
