Editor`s Review:

Pay fewer fees when it comes to foreign transaction and purchases made across the border with a US dollar credit card. And when it comes to these specialty credit cards, the Scotiabank US Dollar VISA stands out with no U.S. dollar conversion fees on top of purchase security, extended warranty and a 25% discount at participating Avis locations.
