National Geographic : 1921 Jul
The Breeze of the Seven Seas Perhaps you are not sailing any of the seven seas this Summer. No matter-the breeze that blows the traveler happily on his way is a land breeze also. It is money. Not so much in amount, as that it shall be convenient, safe against loss or theft, and good as gold anywhere. American Express Travelers Cheques Are the "insured money" of all nations Sky-blue in color, about the size of a dollar bill, these cheques are issued in amounts of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 dollars. Sterling cheques in 5 and 10 £-French Franc cheques in 200 and 400 francs. They come in a neat leather wallet with perforated ends and cost 50c for each $100. You sign each cheque when bought. To cash them you sign your name a second time. These two signatures identify you as the rightful owner. No form of money is so absolutely safe none so universally recognized the world over-for larger sums American Express Letters of Credit are desirable. They are easily changed into our Travelers Cheques without extra cost. Holders of American Express Travelers Cheques or Letters of Credit command the services of the American Express Company's world organization. These offices and thousands of correspondents everywhere assure the traveler the most helpful advice and practical assistance. Wherever you go this Summer, near or far, week-ends or a tour of the world, convert your money into American Express Travelers Cheques. For all journeys secure your steamship tickets, hotel reser vations and itineraries or plan your cruise or tour through the American Express Travel Department.
