I recently posted a query regarding Travellers Cheques on this forum and would like to thank those who responded. The replies were spot on.
Basically we had a sizable amount of TCs that had been purchased a few years ago, and during each holiday have changed a few here and there at hotels we stayed at.
This trip, we were staying at a hotel that did not accept TCs.
I asked the forum about where we could go as we needed to use the TCs as we were talking about 500 plus Euros needing to be exchanged.
The TCs were American Express and were in Euros.
NO bank wanted to look at them nor take them. Even SANTANDER who are affiliated with AMEX.
Forum participants were smack on the money (no pun intended) when they said it would be difficult to present TCs.
So a BIG thank you for your warnings posted in response to my original query regarding TCs. Hopefully there are others who will not get stung by this by also being forewarned.
Thankfully our story has a happy ending and we found somewhere that accepted and only charged 1Euro per 100.
Again, thank you for your wealth of good factual information in reply to forum queries.
