Foreign Currency Conversion Fees

Find out about the conversion fee that is applied when you use the UC San Diego Travel & Entertainment Card in a foreign location.

When you make a purchase in a foreign currency using the Travel & Entertainment Card, the charge is converted to U.S. dollars and a foreign currency exchange fee applies to the conversion. The exchange fee will be reflected on your statement.

The exchange fee is 1.5% of the converted charge.

The fee will be available for viewing within Concur. Reference the Knowledge Base Article on How to Reconcile Travel & Entertainment Card Transactions.

For exchange rates, see the Foreign Currency Converter.
