Been using travellers cheques for the last 20 years in Benidorm , every hotel ive been in has taken them ,also eurochange shops , the barrell and the exchange shops in the indoor market take them .

You sometimes get half a cent more when you use them , but never less .

Just make sure the cheques are sterling not euro .

Why would you rather have travellers cheques over a prepaid card?

If your anything like me, you have your card Eaten~ by those hole in the wall machines. You do get a decent rate (Slightly more than with cash) with sterling travellers cheques in Benidorm, they are safer than cash and insured. If sterling you can just pay them back into your bank account back home. If you have any left that is.

Thanks for all your help. We've ended up with the currency card - fingers crossed the hole in the wall doesn't swallow it.
