NOTE - This was for travel money (cash) transaction using a Visa debit card

Not trying to hijack this thread and I am a fan of Travelex.

Just a reminder for those of you using Visa debit cards; as some banks will charge you for using your own money to buy a “Product.”

I recently went head-to-head with my new bank (A&L) about this charge. It didn’t help that I spoke to some arrogant bitch, who gave me erroneous information and refused to put the transaction into dispute and shut the door to all my queries with a big fat “No, No and No.” So I put the phone down on the silly little woman and went to War!

After 3 subsequent phone calls I argued that:

A/ At no time throughout the checkout was the final cost detailed to me.

B/ The term “maybe” charged for this service is ambiguous at best. E.g. I have a HSBC Visa debit which I have used at Travelex and have never been charged. Therefore, it is not unreasonable for me to assume that I will incurr any charges for using A&L's Visa debit service to access my own money.

C/ I am buying a product “Travel Money.” And I don’t give a rats ass whether you think that is a cash advance; I don’t! I used my money to buy a “Product.”

D/ Terms & Conditions need to be fair on both sides and I felt I was not fully informed of the exact amount I would be charged, therefore I want the transaction to go into dispute (i.e. put the money back into my account) until the charge has been legally debated (which they were very reluctant to do).

Outcome: They told me I was wrong on all counts and gave me my money back ... Go Figure!

I have used an Abbey (Santander) debit card to purchase travel money in the past and never been charged. I was of the opinion cash advance fees only applied to Credit cards?

It depends on the bank, some do charge, some don't, for currency transactions.

Well I've just bought some Euros from them for a weekend away next week and if Barclays have charged me for the transaction from by Debit card then I'm going to string them up.

They're on thin ice with me at the moment as it is.
