use credit cards – Overseas

I realized that many of my friends are not aware that credit cards charge on overseas usage on top of the FX exchange.

Big banks like HSBC charges more, of course.

Bank of China charges 1.95% on top

Wing Lung Bank charges 1.75% on top

Be careful .. and spend wisely

    do you mean whenever you signed for a credit card transaction, except paying the amount you spent, you also require to pay on top their transaction costs? Strange but I dont trust i have been charged for that!
