Hello fellow Ziners, I finally had to say something about travel
checks. I had always used travel checks as about half of my
money but after going to Turkey I will only use them as a small
emergency fund. You can not use Travel checks to pay or buy
in Turkey because of stolen checks. They all have to be cashed
bank after a very long line. I use ATMs but I did not want to
the time to find them. From now on it will be atms or bank window
arriving airport, small denomination of us dollars for tips
purchases, ATMs for cash, credit cards for major purchases.
