Subject: Credit card vs. check
Hi Ziners,

I've decided on a walking tour of the Dordogne this May (lucky me) and will need to pay for the trip via one of these methods. The company tells me that I'll do better financially paying by personal check, as they'll charge me a 3 1/2 percent of the cost of my trip if I use a credit card.

Any advice as to the better method? I've never pre-paid before leaving the U.S. before, and am not sure what to do.
