How can you get your money in your UK bank account when you don't have a bank account in us and that's where you are?

If you have an ATM card you can use it at an American bank. It will take the money out of your UK account, charge you fee, and give you American dollars in return at the current exchange rate. You can also go into a bank and get dollars through an exchange of pounds from your bank. Again, there will be a fee. I did this while in Europe in the opposite direction. Took money from my American bank account to get Euros in the country where I was on tour.

Why cheques not cleared today?

In the UK it depends who you bank with, traditionally cheques have always taken 3 days to clear through the UK banking system, this allowed the banks time to check that the money was available to pay the cheque, however technology has improved so much that it no longer takes 3 days in many cases the cheque can be cleared almost instantly, some UK banks now offer to credit your account at the time you deposit the cheque, although others still insist on waiting up to 3 days. Check with your bank for clearance terms.

What is a check guarantee card?

For more than thirty years, UK banks have issued cards for use with cheques. The card would guarantee payment of the cheque up to a specific amount (£30, £50 or £100) even if funds were not available in the account. It made cheque payments secure for retailers. The cards were either dedicated guarantee cards or they could be use as debit or credit cards, depending on the issuing bank. In 2012, the cheque guarantee scheme was ended and paper cheques are no longer guaranteed. This move is in line with the UK banks' plans to withdraw cheques completely in the coming years.
