No Foreign Transaction Fee Credit Cards

Do you know that most credit cards typically charge a transaction fee 2.5% on your purchases in foreign countries? For example, if you use a credit card to pay $1,000 for purchases or for hotel stays in the United States, Asia, or Europe, you may end up with paying a bill of $1,025 after the 2.5% foreign-transaction surcharge is priced in. A few credit cards do not charge such fees. If you may travel abroad, it is always a good idea to carry a credit card with no foreign transaction fees so that you can avoid the 2.5% surcharge on your purchases.
