    If you can I would just keep it until you are making a larger purchase - DC photo package perhaps

    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.
