Traveler's Check

Travelers’ checks are the cheapest method of paying the program fees. And it’s the most foolproof one too. International bank transfers costs tens of dollars, and many students have no idea how to make an international money transfer. Bank checks (bank drafts, as they are sometimes called) are no different. Stories of money sent to wrong places, or unusable bank checks abound.

Compared to that, traveler’s checks are simple. They are not “issued”, you simply buy them, like you buy for instance post stamps. In many places, such as directly in American Express, they sell them to you for free, i.e. a $100 check costs $100. Elsewhere, in banks or currency exchanges, the fee is very small. And finally, you just send them to us in an envelope like when you are sending a letter (registered mail recommended), no special knowledge needed.

The only mistake some people make is when they fill out the purchased checks. You need to put 2 (two) signatures on them!

  1. Your Signature
  2. Date
  3. APEX International, LLC. (to make it payable to us)
  4. Your Signature

    Dear Admin i just have a small question please what can be the max ammount of Travelers’ checks per one checks thank you :)

      Hello, largest I’ve seen was $500, best to ask directly at American Express or at your bank as not all banks carry all denominations.
