I’ve have many debit cards before, all provided by VISA. When paying online, selecting “Visa Debit” is always a fee-less option.
My new Monzo current account card is a Mastercard. I was surprised by this as I thought Mastercard only dealt with credit cards. When, for example, buying flights, selecting a Mastercard credit card always adds a few £££ to the price. Visa Debit always seems to be cheaper.
Is this going to be true with my Monzo card? Are we at a slight disadvantage using Mastercard instead of Visa? Or do these kind of transaction charges only matter when it’s debit card vs. credit card, regardless of who issued it?
