I personally have never used a traveler’s check. I don’t really see the value in them- they cost money, many companies don’t accept them, and you don’t earn points on them. However, I’m sure there are still people who use them out of habit. I just wish they saw the light and used debit/credit cards that have the same protection and have tons of other benefits.

Anyway, I was interviewed for a Mainstreet.com article about them, so feel free to read my entire view of them here.

Do you still use them? Am I missing anything?
