It would be good to have another method of collecting Avios, especially as the 2 family BAPPs are nearing trigger point for the 241s ( And I don’t want this yet).

I’ve got a Barclaycard Platinum Visa which gives foreign currency transaction fee free purchases and ATM withdrawals. Well, at least it did when I last travelled, but I can’t seem to find out whether the T’s and C’s have changed to stop this.

Does anyone out there have this card too? Do you know whether the overseas use is still free?

My Barclaycard Platinum Travel card has the end date for the FX-free “perk” on my last statement. 31st August 2022. It’s on the first page under “This month’s updates”.
