31. Dynamic Currency Conversion
Some ATMs and merchants may offer you the ability to complete the transaction in a Currency other than the country's local Currency (for example, in your home Currency). This is called Dynamic Currency Conversion. Accepting the offer to settle in another Currency can result in unnecessary conversion costs as the merchant or ATM operator is applying a foreign exchange margin to convert the transaction Currency into another Currency. Do not accept the offer to complete the transaction in another Currency, if you have the local Currency loaded on your Card and wish to use it. The merchant or ATM must inform you of the Currency in which the transaction will be processed before you accept the transaction. By signing the receipt, entering a PIN or completing the transaction you accept the Currency offered by the merchant or ATM operator. The Currency in which you have authorised the transaction will appear on the transaction receipt. If withdrawing funds from an ATM that dispenses a Currency other than that of the country where the ATM is located, the ATM operator may convert the amount being withdrawn into their local Currency before converting it back to the Currency being dispensed. This may occur even when the Currency being dispensed is the same as that of your Card. The amount debited to your Card may be greater than the amount which is dispensed by the ATM. Not all ATM operators advise of the amount to be debited to your Card before you withdraw money from their ATM.
