Cards – the safe, convenient way to travel
Save on foreign transaction fees
When you use your TD Bank cards overseas, you’ll pay no foreign transaction fees.
A foreign transaction fee is typically a 3% charge on any transaction. That can really add up: a typical family vacation overseas could cost $5,000 – a possible savings of $150 in fees! That’s another dinner in your favorite city, a babysitter for the kids plus parents’ night out, or even another night at your hotel.
When you save on fees, you can spend more on what makes a vacation great – adventures and memories.
