Original post

I was aware that there are already options such as:
Tandem
Halifax Clarity
Barclays Platinum Travel

What I have only just discovered (mainly due to just having used it for insurance extras on a hire car abroad) is that the Nationwide Select Credit Card (you must be a member of Nationwide with a current account to apply) is also fee free on foreign currency transactions.

It’s at the Visa exchange rate.

Useful to have a list.

Didn’t realise there were so many.

Would it be possible to update the original post with an updating list? Would be really helpful for those looking for a credit card with 0% FX.

I currently have Tandem and can really recommend. Other than a couple of silly things, which should be fixed this year, I’m extremely happy.

Just leaving this here, for anyone looking for a list with some commentary:

(“best buys” at the top, but definitely worth checking out the table below as well)

Interesting to see that the Halifax Clarity (which was their top pick for many many years) is now slipped down to third place.

Are any of these available for non-UK-residents?

Should Jaja even be on here? They’re not open to all. I’d say yet, but no sign of that changing soon if at all.
