I’m not sure where on Revolut’s priority list GBP accounts for Gibraltar are listed, but they should be bumped up with more priority.
In the last few years, we lost 3 locations to store money.
- Norwich and Peterborough
- Barclays Bank
- Newcastle Banking
We are left with Natwest and Gibraltar Int Bank.
Gibraltar Int Bank is very new, and prone to issues, has out dated online system, and delays in balance updates when using card.
Natwest, is Natwest, it’s not bad, but it’s nothing extra special.
Additionally, in Gibraltar a lot of residents travel over the border to Spain and spend money there, now made even easier with Free mobile roaming so we can top up and exchange money in Revolut without worrying about data roaming charges, which will lead to increased usage.
What is missing though, is the ability to use Revolut as a proper bank alternative, with the ability to receive our wages into Revolut directly. This would be a major game changer in a location where bank options are thin and should be somehing Revolut look with more priority.
