When traveling, the last thing you want to worry about is money. Review our travel tips below to help prepare you for using your money overseas.
Using a Credit Card
Credit cards offer the best rate of exchange
You will receive the best rate of exchange of the day when using a credit card, even though the rate of exchange could fluctuate many times throughout each day. Keep in mind, however, that except for cash advances, the rate is not applied to your transaction on the date of your purchase; it's applied on the date that your transaction reaches the credit card clearinghouse. Some card issuers may have an additional foreign transaction fee.
Notify your card issuer in advance
If you anticipate using a credit card on your trip, we recommend that you call your card issuer ahead of time to advise them of your plans to use the card in a foreign country. Doing so may avoid delayed transactions on your trip. Because many card issuers monitor your spending habits (such as where you frequently purchase and how much you spend), if you have notified your card issuer ahead of time, the issuer may assume that your card has been stolen.
Using a Debit Card
Debit cards are widely accepted for purchases, but you may encounter problems when using them for hotel and car reservations. Like credit cards above, debit cards offer the best rate of exchange, and if you plan to use your debit card on your trip, we recommend that you notify your debit card issuer in advance.
Using an ATM
Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) are widely accessible in major metropolitan areas. You will be charged a usage fee by the foreign ATM operator as well as your ATM card issuer. The exchange rate for using an ATM will be the same as using a credit card.
Buying and Selling Foreign Currency
Get the best exchange rate
While traveling in a foreign country, we recommend that you avoid using the exchange services of hotels and off-hours exchange windows at train stations and airports. Banks, American Express offices and well known bureau de change operations are more likely to offer competitive rates. It's also wise to limit your purchase of foreign currency to what you actually expect to spend
Excess foreign currency after your trip
INTRUST can exchange excess foreign currency for immediate credit at our buy rate. For more information, contact Customer Service, who can put you in touch with our Foreign Currency Desk.
