    Default travellers cheques-where to cash

    I discovered some travellers cheques from a previous trip I did some years ago and phoned the bank to cash them. According to the bank they do not handle or cash cheques anymore. It is Thomas Cook Mastercard cheques. Any idea where I can cash them in the Pretoria Centurion Midrand area. Have travellers cheques gone out of circulation completely?

    Kobus, I havent seen one of those in years. Have you tried Thomas Cook themselves? Are they still in business even?

    Your best option is Bidvest. Give them a call, they took over Thomas Cook years back.

    Legally speaking, you were supposed to exchange it back after your return from your trip.

    But, I suppose the bank where you bought them should honor it and exchange it. Do you still have proof of purchase?
