How are Card Transactions in Foreign Currencies and Transactions Processed Overseas processed by Maybank World MasterCard?
Just trying to prep myself for an overseas trip to Malaysia with my girlfriend, and I don’t want to carry too much cash on me but would like to use my card most of the time. What would be the manner of transaction processing by the card?
