It’s important to be able to compare currency conversion charges when making a card transaction in euros and other European Economic Area (EEA) currencies. This could be a purchase or an ATM withdrawal.
What you’re charged depends on two things:
- the currency conversion rate – the VISA exchange rate, which is set daily
- the non-sterling transaction fee – some of our cards include a fee when you make a transaction in a different currency.
All banks and building societies are required to use the European Central Bank (ECB) reference rate to help you compare these charges.
