    Exchange rates! 4th Dec 19 at 9:46 AM
    The Halifax Clarity Card exchange rate for cash withdrawals and purchases was 1.173Ä to £. Better than I expected.
    At the same time I used my Nationwide credit card, this is their exchange rate!
    02 Dec 2019ARCADE 5.60EUROPEAN M at 1.16666666.

    IIRC Clarity is MasterCard and Nationwide is Visa
    IME MasterCard rates are generally a little better than Visa

    Everything will be alright in the end so, if itís not yet alright, it means itís not yet the end

    and that exchange rate can change from day to day.
    I always use my Halifax Clarity- for one thing they no longer need notification that I am going abroad.
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    I prefer Tandem Credit Card - all the advantages of Halifax Clarity with 0.5% cashback. Also you get almost instant notification of card use which is a great security benefit.
