Traveler's Cheques (TC's)

Traveler's cheques are pre-printed fixed amount cheques that have to be signed twice, once upon delivery and once at the time of use, to encash. Traveler's cheques have been losing popularity and have been mostly replaced with prepaid travel cards. Although safer than currency notes, traveler's cheques are not as safe as pre-paid travel cards and are also not accepted by most foreign establishments. It is therefore recommended to use prepaid travel cards in place of traveler's cheques.
