What are traveller’s cheques and are they still useful?

Rounding it up

  • Traveller’s cheques are hundreds of years old and slowly but surely going out of style

  • Lost or stolen traveller’s cheques are reimbursed, making them a safe payment system

  • Credit cards, debit cards, and prepaid cards are popular modern alternatives to cheques

  • Digital payment systems like PayPal and Venmo are also popular with tech-savvy users
