Barclaycard Platinum and FX fees?


Hi All

I have a Barclaycard Platinum card and noticed various travel sites suggesting the Barclaycard Platinum Travel card as a good card for goign abroad as there are no charges for non-sterling transactions currently.

I looked at the Barlcaycard website and the travelcard page shows a card exactly like the one I have.

I sent a message to Barclaycard CS who have come back with various information but also this….

‘….5. Besides this, if you use your card abroad you will be charged a non-sterling transaction fee of up to 3%. ‘

Doesn’t make sense to me and I wonder if the rep simply doesn’t understand what I was asking.

Anyone know if there is a difference between the two cards (they look the same) for foreign transactions?
