Americans--Travelers checks/cash/debit or credit cards???

26 Feb 2007 Pirate Tara asked

I'm from the U.S. and was wondering what it would type of "currency" it would be best for me to bring. My credit card has a high enough limit, but my mother still insists that travelers checks are best...and I know I should probably bring some "just in case" cash, but how much is too much? I'm only going for thirteen days (the 12-day Amsterdam to Barcelona tour with one extra day in Amsterdam). Thanks in advance!
