How to use your Travellers Cheques

Convenient and simple to use, American Express Travellers Cheques never expire which means you can use any leftover cheques on your next trip.

Sign your cheques as soon as you get them. You won’t be covered if they get lost or stolen if you haven’t signed them.

Keep a note of the serial numbers, you’ll find them on the top right-hand corner of the cheques. Again, you’ll need these if your cheques get lost or stolen. We recommend you keep this information separate from your cheques and don’t forget to take it with you when you travel.

When you want to use them, sign your cheques again in the bottom left-hand corner, in front of the cheque acceptor.
