Don’t get hit by high fees when using your credit card abroad. Look for a credit card that offers no fees on foreign transactions and preferably some rewards as well. Moneysaving Expert lists these credit cards best for travel use:
- Barclaycard Platinum Cashback has no fees on spending OR cash withdrawals overseas. There’s also a handy 0.25% cashback on your spending until the summer of 2023. Unfortunately, existing Barclaycard customers won’t be allowed this card.
- Tandem has no fees for holiday spending or cash withdrawals so long as you repay in full every month. There’s a generous 0.5% cashback on spending at home and abroad.
- Halifax Clarity is interest-free on foreign spending so long as you settle-up in full each month. You do get charged interest on cash withdrawals until you pay, so if you can, do so via online banking while abroad.
