yes, any major store will accept traveler's cheques, street vendors can be a different story, they all like American dollars, be aware that your change will be in local currency, so its almost better to charge any major purchase or have exact change.Mark H wrote:

Chuck is correct that the Pursers Office will cash TC's but be advised that some places on land will not. I have seen a number of places who will happily take a Visa or even a Master Card but will not accept Travelers Checks. I can only guess that there may have been problems with checks that are no good or are claimed to be stolen. My personal suggestion is to use plastic and for the small purchases use cash that you either take with you or safer, obtain from the Purser Office.
