    Have just picked up my travellers cheques from the Post Office and found that i have a $500 one.

    Will i still be ok to use this as cash?
    Where is the best place to use it?

    yeah course you can still use it as cash its still a TC just a big one

    jeez id take it back and change that one :D

    or take it to a bank out there and change it, you might have trouble spending it for a small item amount

    Our hotel did change TC's, but they would only change a maximum of $100! I am surprised that they have issued you with a $500 cheque - couldn't you take it back & ask for smaller notes?

    Oh.

    I've signed it thinking it will be ok at the hotel.

    I ordered them online so have nowhere to take it back to.
    Unless the Post Office will change it for cash for me.

    i'd complain T, the fact that you have to change that much at once negates the whole purpose of getting travellers checques imo

    I agree - In all the times we have used TC's I have never been given a $500 one.

    When Donna and I went to the UK a couple of years ago the largest they even offered to me at purchase was $100. I've never even seen a $500 check.
