Revolut is an alternative to the big banks, without the hidden fees and with radically better technology. Is this a real revolution? To make a long story short, it’s a prepaid card linked to an app installed on your phone. You can top it up instantly with debit or credit card, or by making a classic bank transfer to your individual Revolut account. Using the real exchange rate, Revolut allows you spend abroad with no fees in different currencies.

It lets you receive bank transfers in multiple currencies and send free domestic and international transfers in 25 currencies using the real exchange rate. Thanks to Revolut, you can avoid ATM fees or losing money when exchanging currencies. You can also withdraw £200 for free from international ATMs each month. Exclusively for our readers, Revolut has prepared a special promotion. You can open your personal current account and order a virtual or a physical card for free in 60 seconds, wherever you are!

Pawel Kunz, Fly4free.pl editor, has been testing Revolut intensively for 6 months in many places around the world:

– The greatest advantage of Revolut? Card payments in foreign currency. I am in Italy right now and I need to pay €3 for a coffee and a croissant. I just log in to the app, go to the currency selection tab, enter €3 – and after a while I have €3 in my account, converted with the real exchange rate, without any spread and additional fees. I pull out my card, pay – and take my coffee. I can also use the Revolut card as a handy currency exchange. Whatever country you travel to, Revolut gives you access to a multi-currency bank account. It allows you to hold and exchange up to 25 currencies with the real exchange rate.

What currencies are supported?
You can top up your Revolut account with a debit or credit card in GBP, EUR, USD, AUD, CAD, CHF, CZK, DKK, HKD, HUF, NOK, PLN, RON, SEK, ILS, INR, JPY, MAD, NZD, QAR, RAN, SGD, THB, TRY and ZAR.

How to get your Revolut card for free:

  • CLICK HERE >>, enter your mobile number and click accept
  • Download the latest Revolut app and sign up for your account in about 60 seconds
  • Top-up your account with the minimum amount of £10 or equivalent to order your free card. Delivery is free of charge exclusively for Fly4free users.

    Duh and/or hello. I know this is essentially an advertisement you’re running, but it is a damn good financial product. I did some research just before I began travelling fairly regularly and for my needs, it was easily the best thing available. Monzo is now an option for no fee foreign transactions for UK users, but I still prefer Revolut. Passport and phone aside, it’s my most important travel accessory.

    When you top up, you already pay for the exchange fee from your current bank

    It’s supporting a lot of currencies (24 to be exact).

    I’m using it for many years, and there has been no better product for me like this. Even when they copied my card in Bali, I got full refund.

    “Thanks to Revolut, you can avoid ATM fees or losing money when exchanging currencies. You can also withdraw £200 for free from international ATMs each month.”

    So up to £200 no fees at all (external(internal) even in Thailand, Vietnam, etc..? What about in case of withdrawing more than this amount?

    it is really convenient ! I am using it as a back-up debit card, it is so safe.. you top it only with small amounts, you don’t care if you’re robbed.. you get sms of payment instantly, and yes, I tried cash out in a different country. It works, just you have to read carefully on ATM screen and chose NO CONVERSION FEES. I use the free card.. for me it’s enough

    If you withdraw more than 200 per month, there is a 2% fee for the excess over 200.
