Should I pay in local or home currency when traveling with my debit or credit card?

When traveling abroad, it’s better to pay in the local currency to avoid poor exchange rates and “dynamic currency conversion” (DCC) charges. A DCC is an inflated currency conversion fee charged by a merchant when you make a purchase in your home currency rather than the local currency. This exchange rate will be higher than the one your bank-issued card gives you, and there may be an additional fee for the service. Always opt to pay in the local currency.

Stanford FCU credit cards have no foreign transaction fees—great for international travelers! Plus, you earn cash back or rewards points on all purchases. We also offer a foreign currency exchange service called eZforex, which makes it safe and easy to purchase foreign currencies online or in branch.
