How do I cash Travelers Cheques?

To cash a Travelers Cheque:

  1. Date it in the upper right-hand corner just like a personal check
  2. Fill out the "pay to the order" line
  3. Countersign in the lower left-hand corner

Make sure the cashier watches as you sign, so your signature can be verified.

If you encounter difficulties in cashing a Travelers Cheque in the US, encourage the cashier or merchant to call us for instructions at 1-800-525-7641. Outside the US, please use this directory to contact us. Just click the first letter of the country in which you need assistance: A-C, D-K, L-R, S-Z.
