I can see a charge for 'NSTF' on my bank statement, what does this mean?

NSTF stands for 'Non Sterling Transaction Fee'. An NSTF is applied to any purchase you make using your credit or debit card whilst outside the UK. We charge a 2.75% transactional fee, and an additional fee if you withdraw cash while you are abroad. The additional cash fee will appear on your statement as 'Cash fee DATE'. An NSTF can also be applied to online purchases made in a foreign currency.
