Can I use my debit card for foreign transactions?

Yes, but please note your card will only work at ATMs where Visa debit cards are accepted.

While you must also reside in the U.S. full-time to use Betterment’s services, you can use your debit card overseas for purchases and at ATMs while you travel. If your Betterment Visa debit card transaction is successful, we can reimburse your ATM fees worldwide, including the Visa 1% transaction fee on foreign transactions, purchases, and ATM transactions.

Please contact us at least a week before traveling abroad so that we can ensure your Betterment visa debit card is ready to be used in the countries you will be visiting. Card usage in certain countries may be blocked.
