Perfect For Trips Abroad
Much better than using my credit/debit cards when overseas - decent exchange rates and no rip-off transaction fees!
Good to know that there are no hidden fees when travelling abroad. Thanks for leaving a review of Revolut Ian.
Great For Tracking Spending
Revolut is great for personal day-to-day use with helpful tracking features to see what you’re spending where. Fantastic for travel money; easy to transfer money from my main debit account and exchange is a couple of taps. Competitive exchange rates are a bonus. The only downside is the charge for using at the weekend while abroad. Not the end of the world, but can be off-putting if you don’t have alternative payment methods.
Thanks for leaving a review Ben. Glad to hear you're benefitting from the great features of Revolut.
Thanks for leaving a review, Jake.
