We always use Travellers Cheques since the ATM was taken away, and even now after it is back. There are many places to change them in Arillas, and we have always been charged the proper rate - the standard 2%. The cost per transaction is definitely less than our bank charge on an ATM withdrawal, and the exchange rate is usually better.

Hope this helps.
Phil
