I realize this topic has already been broached but I would still like a little more info. I am going to england soon. If I take American travelers checks are they easy to convert to Pounds? Are any ATM cards good to use or should I open an account with a specific bank before I go? How about credit cards? I do have a Capital One card. Are ATM's generally easy to come by? I would hate to exchange money, then come back to the US and have the rate of exchange get even worse.
