Travellers cheques

Saga offers customers a mixed travel wallet including foreign notes and American Express® Travellers Cheques. Travellers cheques are accepted at thousands of locations worldwide, including banks and bureaux de change.

Benefits of travellers cheques

Safety
As soon as your cheques are signed, travellers cheques are safer than cash and can be replaced virtually anywhere in the world should you lose them – usually within 24 hours.

Easy to use
Simply sign the cheques when you receive them, and sign again when you want to use them.

Worldwide acceptance
Welcomed around the world and available in Euro, Sterling, or US Dollar, travellers cheques are accepted at a variety of shops, restaurants and hotels as well as banks and foreign currency exchange bureaux.

No expiration

American Express Travellers Cheques do not expire, so you can save your unused travellers cheques for your next trip.


How to use your travellers cheques

Sign your name in the upper left-hand corner of each travellers cheque immediately upon receiving them.

Always record the unique serial number of each cheque
. If you need to report lost or stolen travellers cheques, you will be asked to provide the serial number of the cheque in question. Keep your list of serial numbers in a safe place and separate from your travellers cheques.

When you’re ready to use a cheque, sign your cheques again in the bottom left-hand corner in the presence of the acceptor.
