Just want to clarify as I'm renewing this summer.

1.  I bank with UK Barclays and can ask for a bank draft, which is a money order, in USD?

2. I live in England, but could re-new in person in Edinburgh.  It's closer to me as I live in Durham.

If you are close to London, I highly recommend going to the new US Embassy.  You can make appointments online - which have about a 2 week wait.  I asked online for an emergency appointment - traveling within 2 business days.  I got an appointment for the next day.  I took my passport pictures there, paid in cash with US Dollars instead of my US credit card, and it took less than an hour to get my passport.  I spent more time taking picture, filling out application, and waiting for cashier to pay than the wait between agent reviewing application and getting my passport.  You can fill out application online.  I forgot it at home so had to fill application there.
