Are we likely to encounter Dynamic Currency Conversion in Andalucia?

Jump to last reply

The only recent information about DCC was a post in October from IndyDad about his experiences. I have also seen it mentioned on TripAdvisor forums pertaining to Spain in general that DCC is showing up on the amount due when using a foreign credit card

I didn't really consider that this could be a problem until this week when I was online buying tickets for the Jerez horse show in Andalucia. I had to refuse a purchase because the amount to be charged to my credit card was presented to me in dollars when all the pricing was being quoted in euros. If I had agreed to the DCC I would have paid a couple of dollars more for each ticket. I use Cap One for international travel so I pay no additional conversion fees.

We will soon be in Andalucia for three weeks so I'm wondering if I have to "gird" myself for more encounters with DCC there than recent trips to France and Italy .

Have you noticed an increase in DCC in Andalucia or Spain recently? Thanks for any comments. Deborah
