Overseas spend with Maybank Manchester United Platinum Visa Card

For being affiliated with an English league team, the Maybank Manchester United Platinum Visa Card does not make it cheap to travel or use the card when you head to Old Trafford. Overseas spending with this card gets you hit with two different fees- the hidden exchange rate and the foreign transaction fee.

With Visa setting the exchange rate, the credit card company is able to sneak in another fee in the exchange rate your purchases get converted. The rate is set a little lower than the banks’mid-market exchange rate, and the difference turns into a fee for you. And with all of your overseas transactions being converted from the foreign currency into Ringgit, that means you might be giving the company more than you think on every transaction.

Add the 2.25% foreign transaction fee on top of this, and this card leaves you less money to spend on watching and being with your favorite team. Tired of overpaying for global travel? Move your money across borders with Wise.
