Traveler’s checks are still an option, but students are finding them less convenient to use as a primary means of accessing their money.  Traveler’s checks must be exchanged at American Express offices, banks, or currency exchange offices – all of which have limited hours and charge a high commission for their services.  If students decide to bring traveler’s checks, Centro MundoLengua recommends that students use them only as a backup plan in case of problems with credit or ATM cards, not as the primary source of funds.
