Hi there, that sounds rather strange... Did you have ID with you? What reason did they give?

Cheers,

We gave the cheque to our owner of the apartment we are staying in for payment. She presented it to the bank and they refused it saying that it was no longer legal tender in Tobago. It was bought from Barclays Bank England.

No, I meant which apartment are you staying at & which manager?

Once again, it is my best information that all properly accredited travellers cheques are valid in Tobago. Maybe you should go to the bank yourself next time.

Not to sound to suspicious of the apartment owner but maybe she didn't go to the Bank.

Republic offers VISA and American Express Travellers Cheques. So they issue something tht is no longer legal tender in Tobago?

Or is it an issue with Barclays Bank England?

We cashed travellers cheques without any problem when we were there in December at First Citizens Bank in Roxborough so it does seem a bit strange?

maybe she wanted cash immediately. All Travellers are legal tender and all banks say take Travellers Cheques, they are safer than having cash. Recently all banks were competing on selling TRAVELLERS Cheques to people going overseas. so it should work both ways.
