can someone from the above list of replies/others, kindly confirm if you had used it personally in these countries - UK/Singapore/Bali/Dubai for POS transactions and there were no charges, so far could get the below cards from this discussion that have zero charges on international POS swipes

1) RBL World Safari

2) Federal Scapia

3) IDFC WoW

4) Uni NX Wave by YES/SBM 

5) Niyo DCB/SBM

Also say for e.g. I go to a supermarket/hotel in Singapore and get a bill of 100 Singapore dollars and I swipe any of the above cards assuming zero forex, then what will be the charges in INR?

if I take the below conversion from XE.com, will I be charged 100 SGD * 61.66 = 6166 INR or have to look into each card's INR conversion rate and choose which gives the lowest? i.e. how 100 SGD will be calculated and posted in my CC bill, thanks!!

Uni NX Wave by SBM Bank or Yes Bank. Scapia is also ok but you don't get any other Fed bank core card then. Similarly Uni by Yes Bank means they may not give any other Yes Bank CC due to one core card policy

RBL World Safari is good but I've heard way too many transactions declined internationally with it. It doesn't actually work, only in theory.

IDFC First WOW I had but closed as they don't give unsecured cards AFTER you get WOW. If you already have all the unsecured IDFC CCs you need, then you can safely get WOW card

Also note that spends from 0 forex debit cards - the SBM cards or even IndusInd Exclusive Debit cards show up in our AIS so income tax department comes to know how much we are spending for foreign txns. CC intl spends don't get reported (yet) in AIS.
