Currency converter: Frequently asked questions

How does currency conversion work?

Currency conversion works by using the exchange rate between two currencies. For example, if the exchange rate from Pounds to US Dollars is 1.40, then £1 will buy you $1.40. Exchange rates depend on the market, so they typically fluctuate daily. Use our currency converter to check today’s rates.

Will I get charged for using my debit or credit card abroad?

When you use your credit or debit card abroad, there are usually some fees involved. These fees can include currency conversion fees, foreign transaction fees, and ATM withdrawal fees, depending on your card and its terms. To avoid any unexpected charges, it's a good idea to check with your bank or card issuer beforehand to understand the fees associated with using your card overseas. This is why using a Travel Money Card can be preferable as you won’t be charged any hidden fees (ATM withdrawal fees will still apply).
