Just got my card and made a foreign purchase in USD. Got charged an authorisation commission of £1. What's the point? The whole reason I got this card was to avoid foreign transaction fees.


So I was right about charges then.

If you've got any sort of Nationwide current account (Flex, FlexDirect or FlexPlus), then you can get the Nationwide Select Credit card. Absolutely no fees (percentage or each time charge) for using abroad / online for purchases in a foreign currency.

From NW Site;

Cash fee 2.5% (minimum £3.00) of the amount withdrawn on each cash advance.

To be fair, taffyt did not mention cash withdrawls.

And thanks to the original poster.
I am applying for a new card as mine is up for renewal. Putting £50 quid on it I don't mind, but putting £150 on my old one to save the £6 fee is too much.
Surely it would be better to just wave the £6 at the £50 mark. Never mind

Says this on the site. 1.4% charge is made on all usage, ATM or point of sale, using the FairFX Anywhere Card, in the UK, on the internet, or abroad - Anywhere!. An ATM fee of £1.50 (UK) or £1 (elsewhere) applies to cash withdrawals.

Or am I reading it wrong.


Ok thanks. :D

You're looking at the wrong card bro.

According to http://www.ft.com
FairFX’s prepaid card carries no foreign spending fee, and can be topped up by debit card - though it does have a £9.95 application fee. Escape Travel Money and Caxton also offer prepaid cards which can be topped up for free.

Halifax has a Clarity credit card that allows currency to be withdrawn from overseas ATMs with no charge, with interest charged at a rate of 12.9 per cent, and no foreign exchange fee. Sainsbury’s Gold card charges no fees for overseas spending but costs £5 per month.

so does that mean fairfx prepaid mastercard will incur fees when booking with ryanair now?



Think you & i got the fairfx card about the same time if memory serves me well. Personally prefer Wizzair now. After paying the yearly subscription fee of approx £26 i have recently booked return flights to Prague, Warsaw & Skopje all for under £25 return ( + £10 booking fee ).

As always - sneaky Ryanair. Not to be trusted and best avoided unless you absolutely have to fly with them.

Free FairFX Currency Card (Normally £9.95)

I just followed FairFX on Twitter and got a message back from them which offered me a free currency card so I thought I'd share the link on here. The card is normally £9.95 and as far as I can see it…

everyone always goes on about the Nationwide card, but not everyone wants to change accounts just for holiday money. Also if you were going on holiday about now and bought the Fairfx card several months ago you would you have got $2 to the £1, but if you saved your money in your Nationwide account you would have got about 1p in interest and would get around $1.5ish to the pound now. I know which I would prefer!

So maybe the nationwide card isnt so good after all as you can budget what rate you will be getting.


I didn't change accounts - I just have Nationwide as a second account for holidays and transfer money in when I need it.

If I'd wanted to gamble with currency rates I probably would have been buying dollars over several months, but I probably wouldn't have done it with a Fairfx card - I would just have looked round for the best exchange rate. Yes, some years you would gain by buying early and other years would lose out. In the long run you will most likely win with the Nationwide card because you won't be paying the fees and commission.

The reason that people keep going on about the Nationwide card is that it is a genuinely good deal. You don't have to commit a lot of money up front. You don't pay fees. You don't pay commission. You don't get ripped off when you want to access your own money in another country. Their service is good and you can control everything online. Can't ask for anything more really!
redhotchillipep!
these cards are brilliant!
I got a couple back in August when the dollar rate was 1.86, and added regularly untill we went away (just got back)
They are so easy to use, and I don't have a huge credit card bill to look forward to, as everything has been paid for!
Also, it is easy check how much you have left on them
You can also get them fee free if you go through the Matalan website.
