First post here, as I’m struggling to understand something about using the Card abroad for purchases.
I’ve added my new Virgin Atlantic MasterCard to Curve with the sole intention of using Curve for spending abroad on a long trip to Canada this month. There is a great 30k flying club miles bonus for spending 3k in the first three months.
However I’m yet to get a clear answer on whether Virgin Money will are the spending as non-sterling and therefore apply a fee.
My understanding was that Curve converted all overseas spend to £ before passing through but I’m now worried that somehow despite that I’ll be charged a 2.99% fee. All Curve help said was that they pass through the MCC and I need to check with my card issuer.
Does anyone have any experience with using this card with Curve and maybe put my mind at ease?
