I recently moved myself. I suggest that you acquaint yourself with a UK card you like and have AMEX process a Global Transfer. I just did it and started a post with it here, but I did not get many responses. Nonetheless, if you want more information, I'd be happy to assist.

I currently live in the United States and will be moving to the London for school then work. The question is what I should do with my Amex PRG card. I love this card to death and use it pretty much every day. However, it has foreign transaction fees. The question is: should I move my Amex over to the UK version so I don't worry about the fees, or should I upgrade to the Platinum that has no foreign transaction fees? A quick background on me. I'm 23, have excellent credit, consider myself fortunate to be successful, and like to travel quite a bit. I just don't know what would be easier to do, transfer or upgrade. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
