Travellers Cheques at Club Faru

Hey - am travelling to Club Faru soon and am wondering if the resort will accept US Dollar travellers cheques as payment for trips etc or is Credit/Debit or US cash preferred.

Would appreciate anyone who could advise - US cash is OK but always worry about carrying too much and would prefer carry some in travellers cheques.

Thanks

Thank you Spammie - but I am probably one of the only people left who does not own a credit card. Only debit cards for us but with some bank charges using this can cost a small fortune..

Faru is Ai, so cash only needed for tips, but if you want to pay for trips on cash, fine and unless you go mad £500 will be plenty, and being the safest country we have ever been to cash is not a problem, you could also inform your bank as to when and where, then nip over to Male on the next to last day and get cash from a bank on your debit card.

Hi Earls4,

You can use your TC's at all resorts. We prefer to use TC's rather than take our cards abroad.
