碌卡冷知識:小心DCC(動態貨幣轉換Dynamic currency conversion)

Samsonite Brand 全線牌子及產品 9折優惠代碼:"flyformiles"

去旅行唔想plan?去Klook訂購景點門票/交通/WiFi/特色體驗啦!

唔知大家之前去外國個陣有冇發覺D商戶會問你想用d咩currency去俾錢,而大家又因為成日聽話外幣簽賬會有手續費,一聽到可以用港紙找數個陣,為佐摼佐個手續費就即刻諗都唔諗就碌佐卡呢?其實係咁錯架!等小斯話俾大家知呢樣係咩黎架啦!

DCC(動態貨幣轉換Dynamic currency conversion)即係同步換匯,就係你係外國以外國貨幣作貨幣單位,用信用卡買野個陣,將外幣報價即時套用匯率換算轉換為你既本國貨幣(即係港幣,其實你可以揀俾咩幣)報價,從而以本國貨幣支付。

其實大家都諗到,商戶將外國貨幣轉做港幣個陣,中間梗係有手續費架啦;而且,佢咁好死會唔賺你架咩,中間當然仲要食埋你兌換差價,咁可想而知個數係差幾遠啦!

DCC

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

大家可以睇返上面張單,本身RMB3,379.25既單,就要用HKD4,451.85去找,計返個exchange rate要成1.3174。
人仔又幾時升過成131蚊呢?Check返上年9年既人民匯率都係1.27左右,俾盡佢1.28,再加1.95%既手續費,都只係HKD4,409.78,所以佢中間已經食佐你成40蚊,再加上外幣簽賬儲分已經可以儲多幾倍(有睇開小斯既你實知既),計落都唔知蝕佐幾多囉。

所以,大家記得向DCC說不呀,不過如果去外國佢話可以將張單轉做台幣俾既,咁就唔同講法啦,因為台幣富邦有20倍分,計落有九折架^^

    great tip! Thanks!!!

    1. 小斯

      thank you

    請教一下,在韓國簽卡,樂天會問用美金定港幣簽……我見網友話揀美金簽會著數d, 因為兌換率好d, 最後statement出來的港幣會平d, 係咪真?thx!!

    1. 小斯


      因為online payment係冇under到DCC, 即係你見有時hk express d機票分開來回訂, 然後回程個程可以俾美金會平D就係咁解, 因為如果係上網買野個D係會直接按當日exchange rate去兌換再加海外簽賬手續費; 而DCC先食你兌換差價, 再加埋個手續費係入面咁要你俾, 所以會貴好多

          therefore?

          1. percysmith

            Sorry I thought you meant you can’t be DCCed online (you can be). Apologies if that’s not what you’re trying to say.

      2. Timdy

        Thank you both!!

      Lotte Duty Free goods are denominated in USD, not Won.

      The DCC choice is whether you want Lotte to convert the USD into HKD.

      USD is very straigthforward – the Visa/MC rate is always between 7.90-7.91 due to HKD-USD peg (7.75-7.76 x 1.0195)

      Last time I was in Lotte I was offered 8.0128, or 1.4% more than Visa/MC rate

      *Opt for USD at Lotte at all times. And make damn sure the Korean cashiers follow through.*

    So should we book all hotels online in Taiwan currency?

    1. 小斯

      should!!
      online payment is different from payment under dcc

      1. AY

        即係我用富邦ONLINE BOOK 酒店
        用台幣都ENJOY到20X?

        1. 小斯

          可以呀

  4. Kobayasi

    本人係數字白痴, 所以唔係好明.以你講既例子
    想問, 如果在海外當地買, 係咪最好用CASH(當地貨幣)? 如果係ONLINE買嘢既話, 有富邦咭, 就用佢兼且揀以台幣付款呀?

    1. 小斯

      俾Cash當然最好
      但係如果係可以俾台幣/YEN/WON, 就唔理係Online定現地俾, 都係碌富邦抵D

      1. percysmith

        I don’t agree. I can’t think of a case where cash will beat a Fubon card where accepted.

        Fubon has 4X overseas. This equates to a cash rebate rate of 2%.
        It will cover the 1.85% foreign exchange fee levied over Visa/MC rate by Fubon.

        You cannot obtain overseas cash at the Visa/MC rate. Even at 百年 it’ll be a few basis points above it.

        Yes, the weakness of this analysis is that the amount of overseas spending which attracts 2% gets rounded down to nearest multiple $5,000 every year. So this analysis is not valid for low overseas spenders.

        And of course there are promotions from time to time which beat Fubon as well, like HSBC Red Hot Overseas.

        1. 小斯

          Thank you for your comment.

          Actually I am talking about whether we should use DCC to pay for the oversea bill rather than talking about whether we should use credit card to pay for the oversea bill.

          And my conclusion is dun use the DCC except you can pay by TWD, JPY or WON using Fubon

          1. percysmith

            Sorry I thought you meant you can’t be DCCed online (you can be). Apologies if that’s not what you’re trying to say.

          2. percysmith

            (Sorry reply was posted wrongly)

            I think you have to be charged in TWD/JPY/KRW to earn 20X/8X. If you are DCCed in Taiwan/Japan/Korea you still don’t earn the 20X/8X.

          3. 小斯

            If you are DCCed in Taiwan/Japan/Korea you still don’t earn the 20X/8X.
            Why?

          4. 小斯

            I mean DCC to TWD/JPY/KRW not DCC in Taiwan/Japan/Korea.
            Coz something the merchants will ask you what currency you wanna pay

          5. percysmith

            “If you are DCCed in Taiwan/Japan/Korea you still don’t earn the 20X/8X.
            Why?”

            I think I asked Fubon before I travelled to Korea and Japan last month – whether they count online transactions (book hotel, instant prepaid rate). The CS response was “provided the charges are in KRW or JPY, we’ll count them”.

            In Taiwan and Korea, they’ll ask. DCC in Japan is rare but they’ll ask too. It’s China where they don’t ask (rip cardholders off)

    不過要注意,台灣簽賬有20X,每個月結單只係最多80000分, 無記錯,20X 係當海外4X + 16X台灣咁計, 16X 最多80000積分,咁即係計番係HK$5000, 簽多過係只係有4X分

    1. 小斯

      YES won同YEN都有:P

  6. Samuel

    咁幾時先有DCC, 幾時先無? 有冇方法分到? (去日本)

    1. 小斯

      張底單到會見到架 寫得好清楚既
      仲有得俾你tick揀乜添

  7. yan

    sorry不太get到你意思…
    請問如果商家問我用邊種currency俾錢,我應該點答?(假如我碌卡)

    1. 小斯

      用返當地貨幣

  8. richard

    是不是張張 credit card 都可以用當地貨幣比錢, 例如我用緊 渣打platinum visa , 係咪碌卡時,同佢講用當地貨幣找數就得 ?

    1. 小斯

      唔是,係睇商戶

      1. richard

        姐係任何credit card 都得, 只要商戶部機provide當地貨幣比錢?? thz

  9. Lun

    小斯,我想問去澳門碌卡會唔會有好處,銀行又係咪要收charge,邊張卡會好d???唔該!

    1. 小斯

      澳門碌卡麻麻,因為好多間銀行都唔當佢係海外簽賬,如果有富邦都可以簽既

    小斯:

    我曾在大陸的酒店用VISA 卡埋單, 底單上會自動結算一個匯率並且計埋HKD 係幾多錢, 約比巿價匯率貴4%。請問這算不算DCC? 我並沒有提出用港幣結算…前台自動執行

    另外我又試過用同一張信用咭去另一間酒店埋單, 就沒有港元結算價, 只有RMB 價錢, 港元結算價只在信用咭月結單上顯示, 而且感覺上只有2%手續費左右…

    酒店係咪會老屈消費者用DCC?

      –>exac7ly係dcc

      酒店係咪會老屈消費者用DCC?
      –>不能說是老屈,而係佢會好窩心咁幫你轉返港紙,佢真心以為咁樣會為你好啲,所以簽個陣要睇清楚

      1. CG

        Hi 小斯

        I encountered the same situation while checking out in a mainland hotel (the credit card receipt is exactly like what you shared in the post). In this case, is it even possible to ask the hotel staff to switch off the DCC? If yes, what should I do to switch it off? (e.g. ask hotel staff to cancel this transaction and swipe my card again? or simply use a pen to mark on this receipt that I want to be charged RMB instead of HKD?)

        1. 小斯

          yes!
          u should ask the staff to pay by RMB

  11. venus

    hello, 咁請問上網book酒店 ( agoda)訂房應該用hkd好定當地貨幣好定usd 好呢??

    1. 小斯

      唔知架~~
      所以你要兩個價都禁黎比較下
      但因為usd有手續費,所以多數,係多數呀!都係俾返hkd好啲既

  12. Vic

    小斯,今日check statement 發現用dbs black card 係 expedia book 酒店冇分,打去hotline 問佢話境外簽帳港幣結算係冇積分,睇番statement寫 expedia fra, 係唔係真係冇分架?

    1. 小斯

      yes 係無分

    HI 小斯,

    I would need your advice on the following items:

    I have Fubon titanium, Citibank PM, DBS black master, BEA Flyer world card & SCB 銀聯

    1. Always have online shopping in US/ UK websites, which card should I use? Coz they offered DCC for HKD. Since I know that BEA will charge 0.8% for DCC but they offer $5 for 1 mile

    2. I will go to Korea soon. May I know ig I should use Fubon for all txn? In case if merchant offer DCC, should i just pick pay in Won?

    3. Can you also advise if I should change won in Korea instead of in HK? As i need to pay quite a large amount for pre-wedding package in Seoul.

    Thanks!!

  19. Stewart Chan
