Credit card: 1.2% international processing fee... avoidable?

I just noticed that for my Postfinance VISA Credit Card I was charged a 1.2% processing fee on all my transactions/purchases while in Asia, which adds up to a not insignificant sum and I never noticed it before now (which was my bad of course).

What is the best way to avoid this in future... should I consider switching to a different bank and/ or credit card?

I've never really considered this before so advice on avoiding this in future (if possible) would be appreciated.
