Any catches

It’s important to note that while you can use the Latitude Gem Visa credit card overseas, there is a 3.00% foreign exchange fee. 

And make sure not to miss any minimum repayments on this card because you’ll be slapped with a large $45 late payment fee every time you do. So, it may be worth setting up recurring repayments via direct debit if you need to.
