Traveler’s Checks – Do I Need Them?15 Dec 2011

Using Traveler’s Checks has become nearly obsolete for travel today, as the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) has made it quick and easy to get foreign cash in MOST tourist areas abroad.  Of course, some areas you visit may not have an ATM or the network may be down, and they may not accept a credit card.  In this case, you will need cash – this is where a Traveler’s Check may come in handy.  Due to a lack of popularity, however, some businesses no longer accept them and younger clerks may not even know what they are, so be prepared to cash them at a bank if you decide to use them.
