I called my Credit Union last week to check on travelers checks. In "010" they told me they may not carry them anymore. They did have SOME but will not reorder when these are gone. So I almost cleaned out their supply, I left the small denominations so I would not have the bulk to carry around. Well, I went to the bank where I purchased additional checks in "010" and they no longer carry them. Then I went to another large bank and they no longer carry them either. So back to my Credit Union and yes, I totally cleaned them out! I have been told that the checks are easy to duplicate and there is to much fraud with them so they are on the way out. People have brought them back to the Banks/Credit Unions saying businesses would not accept them. Has anyone else run into this situation? What else are we to do when we can not get travelers checks anymore? I know most international outfitters do not accept credit cards unless they have a booking agent in the states, or they charge a premium fee to use them. Let's hear from all parties here for future reference. Roger "A Dream can be relived, again and again in Africa".
