International money transfer FAQs

  • There are no transfer limits for most currencies and destination countries, but our payment partners may have set limits on certain currencies. You’ll always see these in-app before you send. Making large money transfers? Not to worry. Whether you're paying tuition fees or putting down a deposit on a property abroad, you can transfer large amounts of money just as easily as smaller amounts. We just might need more time to run extra checks.
  • We use two-factor authentication to make sure you're the only one who can log in to your account, and we'll send you anti-fraud warnings in-app if we suspect that a transfer may be a scam. We also protect your personal data with our full-stack security systems. Additionally, we use other security methods that vary depending on the Revolut entity you're registered to. Here's how you can learn more.

  • The details you need when you send money abroad vary depending on the transfer method you choose.

    What details do I need for a bank transfer from the UK?

    The bank account details you need when you send money internationally generally include the recipient's full name, their bank code or BIC/SWIFT number, and their IBAN or bank account number. We may also ask you for other details, such as their city or phone number. The information you need to enter may vary depending on the country you're sending to and the currency.

    What details do I need for a card transfer?

    All you need to send a card transfer is the recipient's full name and card number.

    What details do I need to send money to another Revolut account?

    For a Revolut-to-Revolut transfer, you can simply choose someone from your contact list. You can also find someone by entering their phone number, email, or Revtag, or you can scan their QR code.

    What details do I need to send money via a payment link?

    You don't need any bank details when you transfer money via a payment link, just your recipient's phone number or email. Create the link in-app, choose how you want to pay, and share the link with your recipient. The person you're sending to can then claim that money, even if they're not a Revolut customer.
  • The time it takes for your money transfer to arrive depends on the payment method you choose, the country you're sending to, and the currency. You'll be able to see the estimated arrival time in-app before you send and track the status of your transfer. Check out our Help Centre for more on money transfers.

  • When you send money abroad from the UK, there are two types of costs you should keep an eye out for: currency exchange fees and transfer fees. You'll see all costs in-app before you send.

    Currency exchange rates and fees

    Sending money internationally often involves two different currencies: the currency you’re using to pay for the transfer and your recipient's currency. Before you send money abroad in a currency that's different from your recipient's, check our exchange rate in-app. This shows you how much the amount you enter in your currency is worth in your recipient's currency. You may also pay an additional currency exchange fee, depending on your plan, the amount you're sending, and the time of your transfer.
    • If your transfer amount is within your plan’s limit, you won't pay any additional currency exchange fees on weekdays.
    • You'll pay a 1% fee on all currency exchanges during the weekend, regardless of your payment type or plan.
    • If you're over your monthly exchange allowance, you'll pay an additional fair usage fee, depending on your plan (1% for the Standard plan and 0.5% for the Plus plan). There are no fair usage fees with our Premium, Metal, and Ultra plans.

    Transfer fees

    Depending on the transfer method you choose, you may also pay a small transfer fee. This is the amount we charge to process your transfer.
    • Bank transfers
    • You won't pay any bank transfer fees when you send money within the SEPA region. If you're sending from somewhere else, you'll see a small transfer fee calculated in real-time before you send. You'll get discounts on these fees with our Premium, Metal, and Ultra plans. External banks may charge non-Revolut transfer fees that we can't foresee.

    • Card transfers
    • You'll pay a small card transfer fee when you send money using someone's card details. The amount will depend on how much money you're transferring and where you're sending from.

    • Revolut-to-Revolut transfers
    • You won't pay any transfer fees when you send money online to other Revolut accounts.

  • With Revolut, receiving money is just as easy as sending it. To receive international transfers, select the currency account you'd like the incoming transfer to go to, tap the SWIFT tab to find your details, and give the sender those details. Other Revolut customers can also send money directly to your Revolut account in 36 currencies.
