    USA payment. 16th May 18 at 9:52 AM
    Hi

    I need to pay a bill in US dollars. I have a Halifax clarity card. Is this the best option for paying as I believe they do the best exchange rate and donít charge any extra fees?

    Cheers

    I would think so, as long as the merchant accepts card payments.

    ^ Agreed, as long as the merchant you are trying to pay accepts this card this sounds like the best option.

    I use a clarity card for any online non-GBP transaction.

    Also with non-UK companies which use Paypal, you can choose whether to be billed in local currency or in pounds (using Paypal's usurious conversion rate).
