Beware of the Hidden Costs Charged by Banks

LYFORDS has partnered with New Zealand’s largest specialist provider of foreign exchange, XE.

While banks often disclose an overseas transaction fee what is not disclosed is the exchange rate margin that is used.  The exchange rate margin used by banks will be 2-5% between the rate that say XE use and the rate the bank or credit card companies use. New Zealanders are paying around $1.6 billion in extra fees. See the difference the fees can make:
