Can I use American Express travelers checks in Aruba?
I would think so. I am sure your hotel would cash them for you if you find some local places won't take them.
All casinos will cash traveler's checks. Most large hotels have a casino. You do not have to be staying there to cash a traveler's check. We use American Express traveler's checks and cash them at any casino we are near.
Thanks for the quick responses. We are looking forward to going in March, staying at Renaissance Aruba Ocean Suites.
Yes we used them frequently years ago. Best place to cash them is at the hotel or a casino.
You can usaally cash them in at the front desk of your resort also.
Cashing them is easy , buying them is tough , none of the banks by me sell them anymore , I found them at my credit union .
If you are a member of AAA you get them there
I get them at AAA NO FEE. My bank wanted 3% fee. Yikes!
Not all AAA have them either at this point....they were used much more in the 90smand early 2000s. Could not getmthem a few yrs back and have not tried since.
Jay what do use then , the lady in the bank said people use debit cards these days , any drawbacks to them .
