    None for purchases. Though should not be used for ATM withdrawals. Always choose to pay in the local currency.

    Ive used Select CC abroad and incurred no fees. However, their debit card does charge a transaction fee, so avoid that.

    But If you use your Select Credit Card for cash withdrawals overseas, you’ll be charged interest at “cash rates” plus a fee of 2.5% (min. 3) every time you withdraw cash.

    It is explained here

    https://www.nationwide.co.uk/products/credit-cards/select/managing-your-card#tab:tab2

    So to summarise, use it for purchase but avoid using it for cash withdrawal.

    We use our Nationwide Select card for everything when abroad. No charges.
