How do I get to check for the acceptance of a UOB JCB Card for overseas ATM locations?

If one is planning an overseas trip and has the UOB JCB Card, how does one go about checking for the ATM locations that accept the Card?

    When traveling abroad, there are essentially two ways to check the acceptance of the UOB JCB card and that is via affiliate financial institutions that accept JCB cards and via JCB ATM locator. For the former, the ATM withdrawal limit may vary and you may not be able to withdraw a large amount of cash in a single session so do note that at some ATMs, you may have the option to select payment in a currency other than the local currency, for example, the Japanese yen and US dollars for cards issued in Japan. If you select payment in a currency other than the local currency, the payment amount will match the amount you have agreed to as listed on the receipt. Please note that the exchange amount is not based on JCB's rate, but the rate set independently by the ATM owner. On the other hand for the latter option which is the JCB ATM Locator, it makes it possible for you to search for ATMs nearby using your location or keywords, then check where the ATMs are located and how to reach them on a map. The location-based search and route finder are only available for smartphones unfortunately. We want to believe that they will incorporate it to operate on personal computers.

Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

Unfortunately, the HSBC advance card is not an unlimited cashback card as they have a cap on the cashback per month, even for advance banking clients. Furthermore, if you are not an advance banking client, you would not get subsequent card fee waiver if you do not get to spend at least $12,000 in a year.

Consumers earn 2.4 miles per S$1 spend overseas and 1.2 miles on general local spend

OCBC Voyage Card is perfect for well-off consumers with a shifting travel schedule, who want to earn high miles locally and overseas. Consumers earn 2.4 miles per S$1 spend overseas and 1.2 miles on general local spend, which aligns with similar cards. Consumers are most likely to benefit from OCBC voyage card if they spend most of their budget locally, with at least 25% of local spend on dining.

OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend

OCBC Frank Card stands out for its low minimum spend requirement and annual fee waiver however, it’s not a great match for consumers seeking everyday cashback. Online spend on utilities, recurring bills, and school and hospital payments are all not eligible for rebate. Dining, groceries, and other categories are also not rewarded. Ultimately, OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend. OCBC Frank Card is definitely worth consideration.

Ease of use to accumulate on miles

The American Express Krisflyer Credit Card has an attractive sign up bonus and it is easy to use to accumulate on miles as no conversion into KF account is required, and monthly auto “sweeping” of miles help save in the conversion fee. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.

Fee waivers and No transfe fees

The AMEX Express Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card gives a First Year Fee Waiver for you to enjoy and also for your supplementary card members. In addition there are no transfer fees and all the KrisFlyer miles you can earn are directly transferred automatically to your KrisFlyer account with no transfer fee. I would recommend this card for these few reasons which could really make the difference.
