Boo to Overseas Transaction Fees

I'm kinda' upset.  That great credit card deal I recommended some months ago that offered 150,000 bonus frequent flyer miles . . . charges overseas transaction fees!  I paid in Swiss francs for a hotel deposit in Switzerland with my Citi® Platinum Visa AAdvantage card only to receive the bill with a big, fat 3% fee!  The exchange rate they gave me was right on for that day (1 Swiss franc = $1.09) but then the fee was over $16.00.  I'm not happy.  I've never been charged transaction fees by my Capital One Visa credit card.  Guess that's the one I'll be taking on my trips.
