The Southwest Premier Card foreign transaction fee is $0. That means transactions processed outside the U.S. won’t incur the typical 2%-4% foreign fee charged by certain credit cards. Although the Southwest Premier Credit Card has a $99 annual fee, cardholders who travel abroad frequently will save money with no foreign transaction fees.
On the topic of saving money, you’ll also get 6,000 bonus points every year you renew your card membership. This adds up to around $80, which is actually enough for certain Southwest flights, and pays nearly 80% of the annual fee after the first year. Paired with no foreign transaction fees, Southwest Premier is a pretty good value.
The Southwest Premier Card charges a $0 foreign transaction fee. That’s very typical for a credit card co-branded with an airline. In addition to the Premier Card’s $0 foreign transaction fee, it’s a good choice for use abroad because the card is on the Visa network, which is one of the most widely-accepted worldwide. If you travel outside of the U.S., you should fly Southwest if possible, since the card gives bonus points on all Southwest flights, as well as on purchases made with Rapid Rewards hotel and car rental partners.
The only no annual fees no foreign transaction fee Chase credit card I know of is the United TravelBank Credit Card but it's a great option especially if you're a loyal United Airlines flyer with excellent credit.

The Amazon.com Store Card has no foreign transaction fees, too. But that has more to do with the fact that you can only use it for Amazon.com purchases and at select U.S. merchants that accept Amazon Pay. Because of that limitation, a foreign transaction fee would not apply. Even if you buy something on Amazon that comes from a foreign seller, you don't pay extra.
One thing to remember is you don’t necessarily have to use the same card for Amazon purchases and international travel, if that’s what you’re looking to do. There are lots of really good travel rewards cards with no foreign fee that you could pair with your favorite Amazon card.
