Some do better rates than others as I just found out!!!!!!!!!! Check out each one's website under 'foreign exchange' to see who will give y'all the best rate.

Actually, I think you'll find that 'travellers cheques' is a well-established set phrase and the first word;

Travellers, is an adjectival noun rather than possessive.

Therefore, the apostrophe should be dropped.
Thus, travellers cheques is correct and not travellers' cheques, but I haven't used them recently.
