SAVE WHILE TRAVELING ABROAD

When using your AlAhli Credit Card overseas, some merchants might ask you to pay with the Saudi Riyal (SAR) or the local Currency which is the country you are visiting (E.g. US Dollar in the US, or AED in UAE)

Therefore, we advise you to always choose the local currency for the below benefits:

  1. To avoid hidden currency exchange rate, applied by the merchant, which might be up to 5%, in comparison with the fixed currency exchange rate applied by NCB that is 2.75% when using your AlAhli Credit Card overseas.

  2. To earning additional ‘LAK’ points up to 50%, only when using the local currency of the country you are visiting.​
