Barclaycard has a wide collection of travel credit cards, making it a great choice if you want to avoid foreign transaction fees.

What is a typical Barclaycard foreign transaction fee?

A typical Barclaycard foreign transaction fee is 3% of the transaction. But most Barclaycard travel products don’t have this fee.

How to compare Barclaycard credit cards with no foreign transaction fee

  • General vs. cobranded.

    The vast majority of the provider’s collection are cobranded cards.

  • Annual fee.
    Barclaycard has no premium-priced cards. If you have to pay an annual fee, it’ll probably be around $89 or $99.

    Annual-fee cards typically have more benefits and stronger rewards.

  • Signup bonus.
    Consider an annual-fee card if you want a large signup bonus. No-annual-fee cards may offer solid rewards, but their signup bonuses could be lower than average.
  • Rewards.
    If you spend a lot with certain companies — such as Uber, Hawaiian Airlines or Priceline — you might like a cobranded product. You could earn strong rewards for spending with the affiliated brands.

    The Uber Visa Card is unique among the bunch. You’ll earn great rewards on dining, select travel and online purchases.

  • Intro APR.
    Many of Barclaycard’s products have balance transfer intro APRs between 12 and 15 months long.

Bottom line

Most Barclaycard credit cards charge nothing in foreign transaction fees. Coincidentally, many of these products are cobranded travel cards.

This could be great news if you spend often with certain brands. Otherwise, you might like a general travel card.
