Traveller’s cheques

Great guide, but one important update. The banks Barclays and Stanbic (even the main branches) no longer change American Express Traveler’s Cheques. Neither do any other bank. The only place I’ve found that will still change them is the Metropole ForEx on Entebbe Rd. It may be easier to take cash then traveler’s cheques on your trip.

    Has anyone who has been to Uganda recently experienced this? I’m headed there in February, and from my research it seems like a mix of cash, travelers checks, credit cards, and ATM cards are the way to go. Are travelers checks exchangeable at banks or exchange houses?
