Can I make a contactless transaction overseas?

The contactless system is already set up in many countries, and in some of them, it’s the expected way to pay for small value transactions. If you see the contactless symbol, you will be able to use your card in this way. If not, you can still use Chip & PIN wherever you see the VISA symbol. Bear in mind that contactless transaction limits might vary from country to country, and may be more or less than the UK limit. 

A fee of 2.75% of the transaction's value is charged for any non-sterling transaction using your debit card. The transaction is converted in to sterling using the Visa Scheme Exchange Rate which can be found on the Visa website
