I reckon I've got more chance on winning the Lottery than getting a reply to this ( based the fact that I posed a question in 2005 and it is still unanswered) Note:That question is still on the page but does not now require a reply.
Anyhow , Current question and it is really aimed at the NON Nudist crowd.
(Some of us go to Cap:D. for other reasons than the Naturist requirement)
Does anyone happen to know (ie perhaps Fred , who lives there,) if or which of the Banks will change Euro Visa Travellers Cheques. I was kinda hoping that Fred might even give them a ring to find out for me. But If I presume too much I apologise and hope that some one else has had experience of favouable exchange
Thanks in advance
If you don't already have the Travellers Cheques, it would actually be easier to just get cash at a bank machine with your debit card. Your credit card would also work but fees are usually higher than with a debit card.
BTW, I hope you win the lottery . . . LOL
I've been travelling extensively in Europe for many years.
I haven't used travellers cheques since 1992.
I believe they are about to be phased out.
I buy enough currency in advance for immediate needs, then use debit/credit cards.
Thanks LOL and Peter
I appreciate you taking the time and trouble to reply.
Yes ,I suppose I am being a bit of a dinosaur for trying to stick to T/chq's.
I just liked the idea of caahing up a bunch of cash and keeping it in the Hotel safe to withdraw bits of it each day INSTEAD of having the daily grind of finding or going to an ATM ech day or every other day.
But Peter , you are right , it certainly looks as if the days of Travellers Cheques , in France anyway, are over.
LOL is computer talk for Laughing Out Loud. It would be a fun name though! I seem to recall a LOL on "As Time Goes By" on BBC. Wasn't he the handyman?
You can take a bunch of cash out of the ATM and put it in the hotel safe also. It doesn't have to be Travelers Cheques. We usually don't visit an ATM more than once a week unless we run into quite a few places that won't take a credit card. Cash is quickly becoming a nuisance.
Hope you enjoy your trip!
Sorry about that Beau......
Trust me to get hold of the wrong end etc...
Points taken and thanks.
