I realise that this may well be an "old fashioned" way of carrying money, but here goes anyway ....
The only places we have been able to cash our travellers' cheques were at the El Luxor Exchange/ bank and Thomas Cook (2% charge).
When I bought them (from M&S!!!) I was told that there have been trouble in Spain & Italy, well, now they can add Egypt to their list.
Add that to the Ramadan bank hours & money has been a bit of a sore subject!
I "don't do" ATMs in Egypt, well, not since a nasty experience, but looks like I'll have to think again for next year.Edited: 06 August 2011, 20:31
