Credit Cards - Best For Overseas Travel

Best Buys are updated weekly

We look across as much of the market as possible to find the best deals using industry data from Defaqto.

All our picks are nationally available - online, by post or by phone. We try and pick products that are available to both new and existing customers, but we’ll highlight some offers for existing customers if they’re much better than what else is on offer.

Our choices offer the cheapest spending and cash withdrawals overseas. We prioritise cards that do not charge a monthly fee.

We reserve the right to use our discretion at all times.
