I spotted this, perhaps of interest to others buying from abroad (and calculating costs of deals). I had been using XE.com for my rough estimates, but this looks like it should give real-world results $5 = £4.03 (vs £3.97 on XE.com). Possibly people use other sites?

Is it just me or does Visa's equivalent lack GBP?

Thanks. I also discovered Falkland Island Pounds (FKP), which unsurprisingly, is the same ($5= £3.997).
Use with sterling bank card for foreign purchases. As a guide.

I know that a fee-free card, such as Starling can save purchasers money (spurning Paypal and the like). I'm interested in what those fee-free purchasers might pay so we can list the price more correctly on HUKD.
