Buying gig tickets for a venue abroad?

Hi all,

Myself and my boyfriend are looking to buy gig tickets to see Red Hot Chili Peppers in Barcelona.

I've checked out the sites Viagog, Seatwave, Aloud etc but they are quite expensive when you count the admin fees, postal fees.

I then looked on and the prices are much, much better. My only concern it that the prices are obviously given in Euros. The debit card we are using is a Visa Debit for Natwest. Does anyone have any idea of the charges that we would incur?

I have looked on the Natwest website where is says that if any transactions are made abroad with a Visa Debit, you will be charged £1.25 per transactions. But i can't find anything specific to buying from an International website and don't won't to assume that the same rules apply.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You're best calling natwest to find out how much they charge you

    I have booked tickets before using an Italian equivalent of ticketmaster and I paid with credit card, and it was converted into current Euro rate for me, no additional fees but I'd imagine the exchange rate would have covered that.
