A travel credit card can save you money if you plan to spend on your card abroad, or need a low cost back up in case you spend all your travel money on holiday.
Unlike standard credit cards, travel credit cards don't charge fees for your using your credit card abroad. Often these are known as foreign transaction fees.
Some cards may charge you for withdrawing cash abroad, usually between 2% to 3% of the withdrawal amount. But you can find cards that don't charge these fees.
Ideally, it's best to avoid withdrawing cash from any credit card, as interest rates on cash advances are much higher than those on standard credit card purchases.
