    Credit Card Money Transfer Abroad? Protection?

    Credit Card Money Transfer Abroad? Protection? 6th Dec 17 at 11:21 PM
    So, I need to send some money abroad for a trip I am doing next year.

    I am going take it off my credit card and then pay it off in March when I get my overtime through. (0%)
    The company will only take a Bank Transfer (reputable company, many friends have used before etc)

    I was wondering, if instead of doing a Money Transfer from my Virgin CC to my HSBC Current Account and then across to them, if I could just do it straight from my CC?

    If so, would that cover me under the usual credit card protection?

    No. Cash withdrawals are not covered.

    You can't do a money transfer from a UK credit card to a non-UK account
