travellers checks

unique money question - UK travellers checks for eurotrip

Hi guys, I have a unique question for you…

I came to the UK to live for three months. Brought about £1300 in travellers checks. I know you guys hate them, but my plan was to put these into a bank account and this was the “safest way” (yadda yadda yadda, right?).

Now I’m going on an impromptu Eurotrip next week for a month. I can’t open a bank account because I don’t have proof of address yet (the banking system is crazy here).

What do I do with my travellers checks? I can’t use my home ATM card because my home account is basically at $0 and I don’t yet have a UK account.
