    Non-sterling transaction fee 21st Apr 17 at 12:22 PM
    I paid for a hotel booking in Italy using a John Lewis Credit card, and I just discovered a large non-sterling transaction fee on my statement. I'm sure I've never had this before
    Is this a new charge they introduced
    Is there a way to avoid these fees - maybe other credit cards?

    It's always existed. It started being split out separately from the transaction about 6 years ago.

    Apply for a card that doesn't charge it - eg Clarity.
