Best Travel Credi Card with no foreign transaction fees?

Postby Cosmo » Wed Mar 01, 2017 12:39 pm

Before you panic I pay my monthly bill in full and have not paid interest for over 20 years. The bank makes nothing from me. I go to Canada and Mexico and sometimes Europe. The currency conversion is expected for any purchase in a foreign currency. No problem there.

The Bank of America card I had was charging (trying to charge me a 3% foreign transaction fee on each purchase, BOHICA. When I realize this I switched to a no foreign transaction fee card called the Bank Of America Travel Card. It offers $.01 pay back on every dollar you spend on travel with lots of small print to read around the campfire. No annual charge.

Can anyone recommend a better card that does not charge foreign transaction fees which I should consider?

Thanks

We've had good experience with the IHG rewards card, but I get some extra benefit since work tends to default to IHG hotels.

No foreign transaction fees, points towards hotels, and platinum status (for what it's worth).

Only real downside is they recently changed from Visa to MasterCard, so it's not quite as universal as before for where i go.
