Call Your Credit Card Company Before You Travel & Avoid Hidden Fees!

Before you travel to another country, call each of your credit card companies and see which of your cards has the lowest foreign transaction fee.  If you have an American Express Platinum Card, or another premium card, your international fee may be automatically waived, but if not, you could be charged up to a 3% foreign transaction fee on every purchase.  You may not be able to avoid the fees, but finding out how much they are before hand, will allow you to work the amount into your travel budget ahead of time!
