Orchard cards post acquisition, forex fee?

I know I'm likely going to have to ask C1 directly or just go charge something on it, but I was reading through one of the C1 FAQ's on the HSBC acquistion, and they made a backhand reference now to old HSBC accounts not being charged forex fees as they were under HSBC?


The limit is near useless for travel but for the occasional transaction I'm curious as the other two cards I have are 2% and 3% respectively.


Many thanks!
