    1. A Foreign Exchange rate will apply if transferring funds to another Currency. The Currency exchange rate is selected from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets (which vary each day),together with a margin of 5.50%.

    2. Third-party fees may apply.

    3. If you obtain your funds or make a purchase in a currency other than the Currencies available on your Card, the amount deducted from your funds will be converted by the network or card association that processes the transaction into an amount in the Currencies available on your Card in the following order of priority: USD, GBP, EUR, CAD, AUD, JPY, MXN. Mastercard currently uses a conversion rate that is either: (i) selected from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets (which may vary from the rate the association itself receives), or (ii) the governmentmandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date.
    This percentage amount is independent of the additional 5.50% Foreign Exchange Fee that we will charge as compensation for our services. See Section 6 for additional information related to transactions in foreign currencies.

    4. When you use an ATM, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator or any network used to complete the transaction (and you may be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if you do not complete a fund transfer).

    5.If an ATM displays a balance for your Card Account, the balance displayed may be inaccurate due to the ATM displaying the balance in a currency different than the Currencies on your Card. This may be due to an exchange rate being applied that is different from ours. An ATM will not display a balance for each Currency. An accurate balance for each Currency can be obtained through My Account at www.travelex.com

    6. A monthly inactivity fee will be charged after twelve (12) months of inactivity. See section 3.8 for details.
