Charges in a Foreign Currency

 

This page is to help you compare the total American Express Currency Conversion Charge* that we apply to transactions against the latest equivalent Euro Foreign Exchange Reference Rates**, as required by the European Union. We have done this by providing the Percentage Difference*** between our charges and the equivalent euro reference rate in the table below.

If a transaction was carried out today, this information could be used as an indicator of the percentage difference that will apply. This is because we will convert the transaction into local currency on the date it is processed, which may be different to the date of the transaction. This means that the exchange rate used may differ from the rate that is in effect on the date of the transaction.
