do Wells Fargo Banks in the USA sell travelers checks? If not, who does?
Wells Fargo banks in the USA sell travelers cheques at any location. They can also be purchased online from Wells Fargo or American Express. American Express president James Fargo found it difficult to get his personal checks accepted in Europe while on a trip in 1890. Hearing his boss complain that Americans may always have money problems in Europe, American Express employee Marcellus Berry created the travelers cheque in 1891.
