Whenever you make a purchase with your Curve Mastercard®, in a different currency to the one your bank card is set to in the app, we provide the currency exchange (FX) for you. We charge on average a low 1% FX on top of the wholesale exchange rate.
Example (£1 = €1.10); if you spend €110 with Curve and your underlying card is not EUR, you will be charged £100 + 1%, taking the total to £101.
If you spend abroad using the Curve Mastercard® in a country that has the same currency as your underlying bank card, you will not be charged any fees (subject to Fair Use).
Example; if you’re spending in USD and have a USD bank card added to your Curve Mastercard®, when you pay $100 you will only be charged $100.
