Travelex Money Card: No ATM charges + FREE WIFI Editor

If you EXCHANGE your GBP into EUR on Revolut, you have locked in the rate. …If you EXCHANGE your GBP into EUR on Revolut, you have locked in the rate. It's a great product, in my opinion



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.

Does it work for online payments or only in store?


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.

Travelex Supercard is back - but not as good as the pilot
Travelex's SuperCard is back but not quite as good as the pilot as cash now costs 2.99% purchases are still free. It uses MasterCard rather than visa now so rates may be slightly better than before
Latest commentsPost comment

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.

cool just in time for my travel to Asia



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

Original Poster

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.

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

Original Poster

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.

Why not just use the revolut card, you get the interbank exchange rate … 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


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.

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 !

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)

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.

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.

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....

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!
