I am Canadian who will spend 9 months in England and 3 in Canada for the next 5 years. My 1 Canadian Credit Card (henceforward CCC) charges Foreign TRANSACTION Fees (FTF), and thus I am considering applying for a CCC without FTF (suggestions at Greedyrates, Ratehub.ca dated Oct. 18 2015) so that I can continue CCC activity and usage while in England. To minimise foreign EXCHANGE fees (which differs from FTF), I would spend only less than 50 GBP monthly.
Or else whenever in England, I will have no CCC activity and cannot improve my Canadian credit score.
What do you think? Is there anything wrong with my plan?
