When holidaying abroad remember that American Express Card is accepted globally. Any purchase you make with your Card overseas is converted to pounds sterling as soon as the transaction is processed. International payments are converted to US dollars before being converted into pounds sterling. If your transaction is in US dollars, the amount will be converted directly to pounds sterling. If it's in another currency, it's converted to US dollars and then to pounds sterling.

By registering online, you can view and manage your account from any internet enabled device whenever and wherever you choose.
