Business Credit Card changes (Feb21)

23.02.2021 09:57 #1
Hi.
 I have received a letter from BOI outlining changes to my business credit card.

The section on Cross-border payments regulation indicates that currency charges must be shown unless the bank and customer agree not to.

It would appear that I have no option other than to close my account if I do not agree. Can you confirm if this is my only option?

Good morning blenderbus,

I believe you may have misunderstood my question - the letter explicitly states that I will NOT be receiving these messages.

I *do* want to be notified, but the letter I received indicates that it has amended it's T&Cs to reflect that it will *not* be sending the notification. This is supposed to be by agreement with the customer.

I haven't agreed to this (because I *do* want to be notified), but I do not appear to be able to have this option.

Please see the attached copy of the letter I received.
