AMEX TC vs VISA or Master Card TC
19th June, 2007
Just wondering if someone can help me with this issue.
I've been reading as much as I can about how convenient it is to take TC to mainland ASIA. It seems that with an ordinary ATM card and some cash TC are a good option, what i havent found yet is what type of TC are the best to take.
Is it Amex TC? I know they are the easiest to find in Mexico (where I live) but im more interested in the type that would be easier to cash in Asia and the one with fewer comissions.
I'll be travelling through Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and VN

As far as I know the commission is the same regardless of what brand the travellers cheques are and have not heard of any problems with any particular brand. If AMEX is the easiest to get in Mexico, then I'd say go with that.

i've never had difficulty cashing TC's denominated in USD no matter which brand. another advantage of the AMEX checks is that you'll be eligible to visit the AMEX offices wherever you go (if there is one) for additional services and sometimes fee-free cashing if you need. cheers.
