Credit Card / Holiday Money

The Cheapest Credit Cards to use Abroad

With many people gearing up for their annual summer holidays, now’s the time to think about sorting the holiday finances.

Many of us still like to take our trusty plastic when we travel, but is the card in your wallet that you use in the UK it really fit for purpose when overseas?

The table below shows how much each credit card will cost you based on a spend of £2250 (in foreign currency), including 5 ATM withdrawals of £150 each.

Pick the wrong card and you’ll see the charges could hit your holiday budget hard – just think what you could do with that when you’re away – it could be the equivalent of good meal with a few drinks thrown in!

Check the table below to see how your existing credit card stacks up and whether it’s time to apply for something more suitable.
