    Foreign Transaction Fee - Refund Query
    18-04-20 , 12:02

    I paid in full for a summer holiday in local currency (Euros) which attracted a 2.75% foreign transaction fee on my Tesco clubcard credit card. Due to the coronavirus it is almost certain that the holiday will be cancelled by the operator, i'm just waiting for a notification from Trip Adviser. Please advise given the current circumstances, if the foreign transaction fee charged for this abortive trip can be refunded by Tesco Bank ?

    Hi , so sorry to hear your holiday likely won't be going ahead! Your foreign transaction fee was the charge for using your card in another currency and I'm afraid a refund wouldn't remove the charge. It is best to pay in GBP where possible to avoid these fees. We do also offer our new Clubcard Plus credit card that comes with 0% on non-sterling transactions. You can have a look at that here: https://www.tescobank.com/credit-car...rousel/cc/WK49
