just back for usa, Monza card worked perfectly.


I had horrendous customer service with Revolut. I set up the account only for it to be locked for no reason. One customer service rep said it was because of my model of phone (even though is a popular phone and relatively new!). Another said it was a secrutiy check. They demanded a scan of my passport to 'validate the account', which may well have been legit but rang alarm bells. I then just asked for them to just close the account because I was fed up with going around in circles. They refused to even do that too without having a scan of my passport, so I just deleted the app. Crap customer service and a hellish company to deal with. I emailed the high ups too and received no reply. Don't bother with Revolut, people. They do not deserve your custom and are more hassle than they are worth.

Is this better than Monzo?


I have Monzo which is good.... great app also Starling bank card and app do a similiar thing.... instant app notifications for contactless etc

For info this months Which magazine states that section 75 doesn't apply when using this card.


Terrible reviews for the app on Google store. People complaining of having extra charges. I'll wait and see until the product is mature


It works for both online and physical payments, but if the place of supply is deemed to be the UK, a charge will be incurred.


Does it work for online payments or only in store?

Revolute is better than Supercard, except in Thailand & Russia where they can't be bothered to monitor FX properly so instead add a hefty charge.


​No good in Thailand for payment in shops, restaurants etc, need a pin and Thailand mostly uses signature. ATMs should be fine.


OK I appreciate your £120 a year bank account provides more features than the free supercard, but others may find the free insurance useful if they are caught out. There used to be a website you could use rather than the application so hopefully that will come back. Regarding the ATM fee - I agree that is a shame, but its still cheaper for purchases, costs nothing and can be linked to a points visa or mastercard. I'll still use but will have another card for cash etc. IIRC Nationwide is only fee free in the EU?


#58 and it is still a waste of space as overseas cash costs money to withdraw and the app still will not run on a tablet and I get full, rather than limited, travel insurance with Nationwide. It will be interesting to visit this thread in a year to discover whether any of us have actually used the "new and improved" Supercard. I suspect I might be close to the top of the list of those that have only used it to scrape ice from car windscreens. :) p.s. - OK, Nationwide costs me £10 per month but provides us with much more than £10's worth of monthly insurance. The main things are worldwide comprehensive travel insurance for my wife and myself, UK+Europe breakdown insurance for both our cars and comprehensive insurance for our mobile phones.


hmm they are adding basic travel insurance from Sept 21 see Appendix B here:

Is this still the best card to use for Spain? Have previously used this without issue linked to my uk bank card at Santander?


by leaving money in my current account I earn 3-5% interest so would loose this toping up a pre-loaded card. revolute limits spend to £500 per month before it starts charging a fee, I tend to take a big annual holiday in which the hotel alone takes this much without any other spending. This alone means Revolut would have to be used with something else and it says they may start charging after 1 year


Revolut also have a proven track record, it's hardly difficult to pre-load a card through an app, and then withdraw what remains directly back to your debit card. If you know anything about this part of the financial industry you will know that all client funds are ring fenced i.e. if the firm goes belly up your money is safe. If you're happy paying a poor exchange rate when the true interbank rate is on offer then that's up to you.


1. Travelex has a proven track record. 2. You have to preload the Revolut card. The Supercard takes only what's spent, when it's spent.


Why not just use the revolut card, you get the interbank exchange rate and no fees also, you can't get a better rate than that

Looks like it's gone up to 1.374 Euro/GBP However I bought some Euros this morning using Eurochange at 1.3725 so not really that fantastic a rate

Wasn't enthusiastic about a 2.99 fee raised a new thread on this


Just got the email regarding the new card. You have to re-apply even if you had one before. They've also introduced a fee of 2.99% for ATM withdrawals.


I haven't had an email yet, I'll look out for one, thanks.


Impression i got was it would be June, they've already decided to go live but it isn't clear what happens next to trial people. I think they will issue a new card but i got an email yesterday about registering, no mention of me being an account holder already


Has June been confirmed? I thought it was just "This summer" and the end of the pilot is 7th June.

Dont forget TCB and the price match, its easy enough to do and matches the best online rates which don't give you the guarantees Travelex provide.


Not the greatest this time. changing 1000£ to US$, only better off by 3.7$, lets hope Scotland stays with GB and the $ goes back up again


its gone from 122.49 to 123.00 - wow huge saving - NOT !

Furthermore travelex ARE indeed clowns that in 2014 can't even operate an effective eccomerce operation. 7.5 hours later and no email confirmation. No one at their call centre knows what the hell is going on so the only way to cancel is by doing a chargeback through your bank. Great. Welcome to the 1800's


Maybe it was. Maybe it wasn't. But for me your post was a mistruth. And what has Friday got to do with today's happy two hours? It was 1.6541 on moneycorp on Monday. So what? No one claims travelex is the best day in day out. Frankly I find anything you say now difficult to believe. I am sure travelex did not change the rate DURING the happy hour promotion so perhaps you need a new watch (and a specsavers deal)


Maybe it was. But when I LOOKED it was 1.6507 on CC and 1.65 on TX. And FYI it was 1.6525 on CC when I ordered on Friday. And furthermore CC is STILL a whole cent better than TX as I type this.


No it was not. It was 1.6506 on Travelex and 1.65 on CC WHEN I ORDERED


No it was not. It was 1.65 on TX and 1.6507 on CC when I looked. Did you read the OP?

1. I was generally impressed with ease of use and accessibility of my pre-loaded Rand Passport whilst in RSA & surrounds. However, obtaining an account balance proved problematic, especially if you don't have access to the Internet. This could prove embarrassing and thus is cause for concern, which could be easily avoided if an a/c balance was provided. 2. Hey guys, how about more regular 'Happy Hours'; it's thirsty work out here!! Cheers!


I can get 28Euros more using Travel-Premier on a £1200 spend so cold from me.


Sadly they're still being beaten by some online-only dealers for Australian dollars, so this isn't too great of a deal for me after all. Oh well.


I actually think they have pretty good rates...amongst the best if you buy in advance actually...


I too have voted hot, because I will be buying my Australian currency tomorrow if this gets Travelex to the top of this page: Sorry to the OP that this has gone cold, I don't think it deserved to, but I guess we still have to see how good the deal actually is.

LOL! Correct. Buy high sell low! I'll get back in my box.


Euros aren't getting higher, the pound is.


Guys...the rate getting higher means you get less GBP for your Euros when you sell them back. Sherbolton you should just stick with what you got as you will get less than you paid last month. Unless you think that the rate will go up further and also goes up enough to cover the difference between buy and sell and the commissions you usually have to pay. And as greece will have another vote in a few weeks time with anti austerity parties most likely the winners...that could easily happen...anyone got some old Drachmes at home? :3


I think you always get stuffed when you sell currency back because the rates for buy and sell are so far apart. It should be better for you selling back than it was last week. If you can afford, it's probably better to hang on and use for next holiday. You get nothng much in interest if you convert back to £ and put in the bank.

for anyone interested, last time this was on when i picked up my money at the airport they offered to sell me more money at the same happy hour rate - which i accepted - so you can just change £10 now and then decide at the airport how much you actually need and you still get the same happy hour rate


Always found them very good, .They do Quidco as well and also have a price promise which basically matches anyone else including Thomas Exchange who always have the best rates even if they are just online. Just take a screenshot and email it to them and they refund the difference. Great value and helps that you can pick up at the airport if needed. Hot. However, not going to buy just yet, I'll wait and see for a bit as to the direction the Euro is taking....


Always worth checking out MoneySavingExpert at MKD


Also instore at sainsburys


If its anything like the last "happy hour" they had don't waste your time. It was a complete load of rubbish and better rates were available elsewhere.

Same here! If that's a happy hour I'd rather stay down the pub!


I have gone on the Travelex site when they have previously had flash sales and they were rubbish . I think the us dollar went up by 1 cent


Cold on the basis of zero details offered by therm -- if they listed the rates in advance which they could do it would be worth me going into store and doing it.


Too true. I was trying to perpetuate the rhetoric being banded around by Germany et al. Maybe if the eurozone close their eyes and make a wish santa will make all their problems go away. Then again, maybe not.


They had a blitz sale on Wed and Thurs and they were awful deals. Nowhere near as they were hyped up to be!
