    We have been taking Travelers checks for the past 7-8 years. Most places readily accept them - Restaurants, Food stores, etc. Your Hotel will also cash them for you. We are fortunate that our bank does not charge their customers for them.

    We preferred them for our casino money, but they are too difficult to get as neither our back or credit union sell them anymore.

    Travelers checks are a thing of the 20th century. You can accomplish the same thing more easily with a credit card. Also, with a CC you can earn points (dollars) to pay for future purchases.

    We used to use them, but haven't in years. Back then they were readily accepted at the resort front desks & casinos

    We used them until last year. We were unable to buy them anywhere that we bank. The only place I found them for sale was at a local credit union that we do not belong to and they only sell to members.

    We take them every year and have never had a problem using them. We get them at AAA- for free. We budget for our trip and only use credit card for renting a car and an emergency. It works for us and so far we have been going at least 1x a year since 2011 by sticking to the budget.
