Even better than money "A. B. A." Cheques are better than actual money for the tra veler for several reasons: They are more convenient to carry less bulky. They are safer, be cause no one can use them until you have countersigned them. Your countersignature on an "A. B. A." Cheque in the pres ence of the person accepting the cheque, is the only identification required. They do not have to be changed into another kind of money when you go from one country into another. They are like dollars in the United States and Canada; like pounds, shillings and pence in the United Kingdom and the British Colonies; like francs in France, lire in Italy, and so on. In other words they are accepted internationally for payment of goods and services-"The safest, handiest travel funds."
