More Tour and Travel Advice for Europe
Travelers cheques are a useful way to carry cash as if you loose them they can be replaced.
If you do choose to use travelers cheques we recommend you bring them in Euro for European tours and Pounds Sterling for tours through Great Britain. US Dollar travelers cheques are sometimes accepted and exchangeable however other currencies such as Canadian, Australian, New Zealand Dollars, Rand, etc, are often difficult to exchange.
Internationally recognized cheques from a company such as Thomas Cook (official site), Travelex (official site) or American Express (official site) are highly recommended as are small denomination cheques (10’s, 20’s and 50’s)
Remember to make a copy and keep a record of your travelers cheque numbers, leave one copy at home and carry another copy separate to the cheques in case of loss or theft.
