Many or all of the products featured here are from our partners who compensate us. This may influence which products we write about and where and how the product appears on a page. However, this does not influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

Those of you who are extremely credit card savvy may know that Capital One credit cards come with an amazing benefit – the credit card issuer actually eats the ~1% foreign transaction fee that Visa & MasterCard charge, rather than billing you around 3% like the other big credit card issuers out there.

However, there have been quite a few new additions to the 0% foreign transaction fee club, since we originally posted our list. We’ve been religiously adding these credit cards with no foreign transaction fee to our post from August, 2010.

New additions include impending changes to the American Express Platinum and Centurion cards, several new premium Chase hotel cards, and an upgrade to the British Airways credit card.

Furthermore, in our efforts to index the credit union world, we’ve also found 6 very large credit unions that don’t charge a foreign transaction fee on their credit card offerings.
