Hi Ltl! I understand that you'll be traveling to Sweden. When you make a debit or ATM transaction in a foreign currency Visa charges a 1% foreign transaction fee. The 1% fee includes all amounts charged by Visa on foreign transactions.


Also, since you'll be traveling, it is recommended to place a travel notification on your account. We suggest using search and entering "travel notification." On the results page, select MSR "Add Debit Card Travel Notifications."


Or you can use these steps:

  1. Go to your My Accounts Summary.
  2. Next to your account, select "I want to."
  3. Select "View all options," then select the following:
  • Debit card - Scroll to the bottom of the page, look under the ATM/Debit Card heading and choose "Add Debit Card Travel Notification."

I hope this information was helpful. Please let us know if you need further assistance. - Ben
