Numbers That Will Help
Do you want a debit card instead?
If you can't get a credit card due to a weaker credit rating, or would prefer a bank account with a debit card to spend on abroad, you have a few options:
- Norwich & Peterborough BS current accounts have 0% overseas spending fees and no cash withdrawal fee worldwide. However to avoid all charges you must meet some requirements.
- Gold Classic
The Gold Classic card charges a £5 fee unless you pay in £500 per month (approx £6,100 salary). There's also a £5 monthly fee if you go into your authorised overdraft by more than £10.
The Gold Light card charges £5 if you make fewer than five transactions a month. There's no authorised overdraft for new customers, so ensure you don't spend more than you have in the account or you'll be hit with big fees.
- Top prepaid card. You top these up with cash, then can spend as much as is on there. See the specialist overseas prepaid cards section.
- Load-free debit card (London area only). New high street player Metro Bank charges no foreign exchange loading or cash withdrawal fees on the card that comes with its current account. However, you have to go to one of its branches, all in and around London, to get one (it's opening more in future, but all in the south east of England).
Getting the cheapest foreign cash
If you want to get the best deal for spending overseas, it involves a combination of the best exchange rate and the lowest commission (read more on commission versus rate).
To cut through this, we’ve built a special daily updated free website at TravelMoneyMax.com. It whizzes to all the main online bureaux de change to compare who'll give you the most foreign cash, after all charges and exchange rates.
Though do remember if your money is held by a currency provider - if you're buying in advance, for example - it's not protected if it goes bust, so be careful.TravelMoneyMax.com can only search companies with an online presence, though luckily these usually undercut their high street competitors. It’s occasionally possible to get a better rate at some local specialist dealers.
Yet this is rare and they’re only located in areas with large amounts of overseas visitors where competition on rates is very high, such as Bayswater in central London.
