(Worldkings.org) Travelers cheques (TCs) date back to the end of the 19th century, with American Express and Thomas Cook as the first issuers. Thomas Cook had issued a precursor to the TC, Cook's Circular Note, in 1874 in New York. But the world's first traveler's cheque was issued by American Express in 1891.
