I am short one Bancotel Cheque and am leaving for my trip in one week. Does anyone want to sell one check? The catch is that I need it before I leave.

If nobody has one to sell, does anybody know how to go about getting one?

Thanks in advance.

I have exactly one check left over that I'd like to sell. But, I'm in Madrid. Will you be coming to Madrid? I don't think there is time to send it by mail. Let me know if you could use it once you are here.

What is a "Bancotel check", and if it's a check, how can it be transferred from one person to another? What is it used for?

Hi Winston,

Bancotel checks are a way to pay for certain hotels at discounted rates. You have to buy a book of 5 checks (each check $50) and you pay 1, 2 or 3 per night for the hotel. You can end up saving about 50%. You can find more information at

I have one Bancotel check still in the coupon book. but I doubt you'll get it before you for Spain.., personally, I would make whatever hotel you staying at an offer to give them the cash equivalent of a Bancotel coupon for the one night you are missing. Bill in Clearwater, Fl
