When using a UBA Debit or Prepaid card abroad, watch out for a practice known as dynamic currency conversion where you are given the option of paying for goods and services in either Uganda Shillings or the local currency. While this may seem like an appealing proposition, as you’ll know exactly how much you are spending, as a general rule, you should choose to pay in the local currency. This is because many restaurants and retailers may use an unfavourable rate of exchange to convert the price, which means you could end up paying over the odds.
