Cashing Travellers Cheques in Prague

Travellers ChequesTravellers Cheques are easy to use. Banks usually charge around 2 % commission for cashing traveller’s cheques. Exchange offices will charge you between 3 to 10 % commission, but their rates might be slightly better. Thomas Cook and Amex change their own branded cheques without commission. Amex and TC have a few branches around the city. Several banks accept Euro-cheques up to a maximum of 6.500 CZK per check. 

Travel Cheques Advantage

The main advantage is protection against theft, but in the Czech Republic, they are not popular, and their use is limited. They are not accepted in shops or restaurants but can be exchanged for cash in banks and exchange offices.  Most banks accept travel cheques issued from American Express, Citicorp, Thomas Cook, Master Card, Switz Bankers and Visa.

American Express

Tourists with American Express traveller’s cheques can cash them at the American Express office in central Prague (no commission charged).
