Q. Is there any charge or fee for an international debit card in Ubi?
Hmm, yes somewhat around 2.5 % per transaction let me give my experience so I bought a product of Rs 191.46 so my Ubi bank charged me around 4.78 rs extra so, the total is 196.94 ~ 197.
And when I checked my Ubi statements I was shocked the bank charged me 118rs and again 118rs consecutively.
When I asked about it, they weren’t confirmed but answered me the first one for having a debit card and the other for international service.
So, I am not too confirmed but I will try and experiment so I can confirm it as soon as possible.
