The U.S. Bank foreign transaction fee is either 0% or 3% of the purchase amount or foreign ATM advance transaction, depending on the card. And if you want to withdraw cash abroad, be prepared to pay a $2.50 non-U.S. Bank ATM fee.
If you’re going abroad, be sure to take a credit card that won’t rack up foreign transaction fees. And if you have a bank account with U.S. Bank, stay away from international ATMs. Those foreign withdrawal fees hit hard.
