Hitting the slopes, heading for some winter sun or travelling for business this new year? You’re in luck! The AF Charge Card can be used worldwide – anywhere you see the VISA logo.

It’s easy and secure to use and has one single, non-sterling purchase fee of 2.99% every time you buy something overseas

The exchange rate is calculated via the Visa daily exchange rate when paying in the local currency, which is usually recommended.

Cash withdrawals and foreign exchange options are disabled on the AF Charge Card as standard. If you wish to use these services please contact the AF office.

There’s no need for us to advise Barclaycard of your travel arrangements. However, if you do have any problems using your card whilst abroad, please contact the AF office in the first instance.

For lost or stolen cards, Barclaycard can be contacted during out of office hours on 0800 008 008 or +441604 269605 from abroad. You will be required to answer some security questions – please AF interactive for further information on this.
