Can I use my Royal Bank of Scotland credit card abroad?

Our credit cards are widely accepted at millions of overseas retailers and ATMs, so your money is easily accessible. To use your credit card, just look for the Visa and MasterCard logos in retailers or on cash machines next time you are abroad, then use your card as normal.

Payment Scheme Exchange Rates are set by Visa and MasterCard. Please note that currencies fluctuate every day.

When you get back home you'll see the purchases and withdrawals you made abroad shown in the local currency, then exchanged into pounds sterling on your statement. We add a small percentage to cover the foreign exchange fee.

You can use our new tool (opens in a new window) to calculate the cost of any foreign transactions.

If you have a question regarding a foreign transaction, please contact us.
