  • A travel money card is a popular way to spend when travelling abroad. There's no 'best' way to spend when travelling, but there are some ways to help you save money. Here are a few tips:
    1. Don’t exchange cash at the airport: it’s much cheaper to withdraw money from an ATM with your travel money card
    2. Don't carry more cash than you need: when you return home from your trip, you’ll need to re-convert this cash back to GBP, which can take time and cost you in fees
    3. Always choose the local currency when spending with your card in shops and restaurants
    4. Sign up to Revolut so you can manage your balance and get instant notifications on what you spend

  • If you're looking for the best bank to use when travelling abroad next, you need to consider the cost and convenience of:
    • Exchanging currency before you go, or while you're there
    • Withdrawing money from ATMs
    • Using your card in shops, restaurants, and more
    Traditional banks also aren't your only option. Financial apps often have similar features to traditional banks without the hassle. With Revolut, you can do everything in-app and save on your transactions and withdrawals abroad. We offer ultimate flexibility and control over your money.Try Revolut now.
  • Prepaid travel cards, depending on the provider, can come with different fees such as initial load fees, reload fees, ATM fees, and inactivity fees. Meanwhile, travel debit cards act like any other debit card, but they’re also great for spending abroad in different currencies. Plus, prepaid travel cards might not be reliable for reservations like booking hotels, cars, or cruises — or anything that requires a deposit. It can also take from 2 to 3 business days for a transaction to a prepaid travel card to clear. A travel money card gives you the flexibility to add money when you want (often instantly!) and spend it when and where you want to.Try Revolut now.

If you have any questions about your personal circumstances please seek professional and independent advice. Revolut is not a financial adviser. ATM withdrawals are subject to fair-usage fees depending on plan. Withdrawing cash from an ATM using your Revolut card is free, up to the limits of your plan. Check out all our pricing plans. After you hit these limits, we charge a small fee. If you’re withdrawing from an ATM in a currency you don’t hold in your wallet, this will involve a conversion. Exchange fees above your free conversion limits will also apply for that conversion. You may also be charged a fee when withdrawing funds by the ATM owner. Learn more.
