If you have read the proof section of this site, you will see that I have had my arguments with Tesco/Lotus over their use of the customer-unfriendly “Dynamic Currency Conversion” … billed by the staff as a “convenience” for the tourist.
Today I was informed that Tesco/Lotus had stopped all use of DCC services and was charging ALL cards regardless of issuing country, in THAI BAHT! That is great news! One less rip-off to worry about. Hopefully they and other merchants will realize that dynamic currency conversion benefits don’t exist; customers don’t like dcc.
I could not find any further information; there are no reports online of any changes, and no posts on any of the forums that I monitor. Whether this is a permanent change or not is unknown. Whether this is true at all Thai Tesco/Lotus locations is also unknown.
Please let us know your experience when purchasing with an international credit card at Tesco/Lotus.
