Cheaper than Credit Cards

- In case of credit cards, the rate of exchange depends on the rate applicable the day you transact which may be unfavourable. Whereas, with the WCC / GCC, the rate of exchange is fixed the day you purchase the card.
- In case of Credit Cards, if your bill is not paid within the due date then you pay much more in terms of interest payments, which are not applicable to the WCC / GCC.
