Welcome Mike from a fellow Madisonian!

For foreign purchases, I have exclusively used my Summit Credit Union (local Madison) card. They have never charged the additional fee but I check before every trip to be sure they haven't changed their policy.

I also pay extra into that Visa account before I depart and then there's no interest accruing on my ATM withdrawals while I'm traveling.
