I guess I am old as we have always used travelers checks when we traveled. Last year we could only find one bank within 60 miles of home that handled them and they told us they were going stop. I don't care for loadable "travel cards" as it seems to me that you double pay for them. Travelers checks have the upfront fee, but the cards have the upfront fee PLUS you then have the ATM fee as well. Any suggestions, or do I have to catch up with the times?
