Using Revolut Abroad — FAQs
Managing your money with Revolut's multiple currencies
You should change some of your money into the currency of the country you’ll be visiting. You can use the app to start hundreds of different currency pots. Revolut’s fixed conversion cost is rather modest at roughly 0.4% (but it rises to 1%-2% if you do the transaction over the weekend):
- The ‘Exchange’ tab can be found on the main menu.
- Pick the currencies you want.
- Enter the amount.
- To discover the final price and costs, choose “Review Order”.
- Start making purchases or withdrawing money from ATMs abroad with it.
- Tap the “Transactions” menu option to see the actual conversion rate that was used.
What are the foreign transaction fees for Revolut?
With the Revolut debit card and the Standard plan, you can withdraw up to £200 per month for free from ATMs. The Revolut app monitors your use of the free balance to help you avoid overdraft fees. However, there may be costs associated with using a particular ATM, fair usage restrictions, and weekend surcharges.
What is the cost of the Revolut card in the UK?
In the UK, you may get and utilise Revolut without spending a dime. Above, we covered some of the pricing levels that Revolut provides whether you’re interested in more services or want to pay less in fees.
How can I apply for a Revolut debit card to use abroad?
The smartphone app Revolut is available at no cost. You need to prove your age (with a passport or driver’s licence) and legal status.
When using the Revolut credit card, how can you get cash abroad?
Just use your Visa or Mastercard at any ATM. Credit card withdrawals are discouraged due to the high interest rates often associated with such transactions. We suggest using a debit card to withdraw cash instead.
Is Revolut budget-friendly for travel?
When converting currency, Revolut uses the mid-market rate. This allows you to save money on your trip by avoiding costly markups associated with currency conversion.
The premium and metal plans of the Revolut card provide perks including travel medical insurance, airport lounge access, and larger ATM withdrawal limits than the ordinary card. A multi-currency account, available via Revolut, lets you store and convert a number of different currencies, making it ideal for travellers.
