The Fidelity® Credit Card foreign transaction fee is 1% of the amount spent abroad. Remember that this fee will be assessed for purchases made while traveling abroad or from merchants located outside of the United States.
There are alternatives with no foreign transaction fees from other issuers, if you plan on traveling abroad a lot. So there is really no reason to pay a foreign fee on a credit card.
The Fidelity® Credit Card credit score requirement is 750 or better. That means people with excellent credit have a shot at getting approved for the Fidelity® Credit Card.
You should note that while your credit score is an important factor, there are plenty of other things that will impact your chances of being approved for the Fidelity® Credit Card, too. Some other key criteria include your income, existing debt load, number of open accounts, recent credit inquiries, employment status and housing status.… read full answer
If you excel in other areas, you might be able to get approved with a slightly lower credit score in some cases. But it’s best to wait to apply until you meet the Fidelity® Credit Card credit score requirement. You can check your credit score for free on WalletHub.
You can get a cash advance with your Fidelity® Credit Card at any ATM or in any bank that displays the Visa logo.

Credit Card Issuers That Do Not Charge Foreign Transaction Fees
It’s worth noting that plenty of other credit card issuers charge foreign transaction fees on only some of their cards. Among these issuers, you will find a handful of top-notch credit card offers that don’t charge foreign fees. These cards also offer above-average ongoing rewards, and require good or excellent credit for approval.
Notable Credit Cards With No Foreign Transaction Fees
It’s never a great idea to assume your credit card does not have a foreign transaction fee based on the issuer alone. So before you travel to a foreign country or make an online purchase from an international seller with your credit card, make sure you have one that won’t cost you extra every time you use it.
