“Beware Credit Card Charges”

Written on: 28/01/2020 by sqMonahan299 (1 review written)

Have previously booked currency with them with reasonable success.
Most recently decided to book currency with credit card as website advised that the only extra cost was a .29% service charge.

On receiving my credit card statement I noticed that £38 (5%) had been charged by the credit card company. I queried it and was told it was a cash advance fee.
I would have obviously paid by debit card or bank transfer had I been aware as this charge plus the +0.29% charge made this a very expensive forex charge.

When I reported this to Currency Club suggesting that their website should carry a clear warning, they were quite unhelpful, basically I was fobbed off and told to take it up with my credit card issuer.
