Thanks, Awbaker. My copy and paste function did NOT seem to want to work that night. Or perhaps it was the operator?

Amapola, You took the words out of my mouth.

Whatever the problem with travelers' checks and a rental car in Puerto Rico, it can't have involved the exchange rate--unless Shrink was trying to use travelers' checks in some other currency than US.

That being said, this is a very useful thread, one that has helpled me decide to use my credit card rather than my debit card as much as possible during my visit.

I have a related question (regarding when/where to get Euros) which I will post in a separate thread.

Thanks all!

1. If it were me, I wouldn't rely on just cards... I have had my ATM card rejected by some banks in Italy, and most hotels will take the traveler's checks, if you are in a pinch. Some of each, some of each...
2. I rode Ventimiglia-Cinque Terre 2 years ago.. no A/C, but windows do open for a good breeze.
7. Pickpockets- I did see people watching my backpack sometimes, but I had locks on it, so no worries.
