I’m based in the UK. I’m about to go on holiday to Malta/Italy for 2 weeks. I’ll need approx. EUR1500 spending money for cash and purchases.
How can Revolut help, please?
during the week any EUR you spend will be consumed at mid-market from your GBP balance, or pre-exchange to secure a rate.
for the weekend you might want to exchange some in advance to avoid the 0.5% weekend spread.
any remaining EUR balance you can later exchange back to GBP at 0% when you see fit (week day)
be sure to make every transaction abroad in the local currency (EUR) even if the terminals suggest you to pay in GBP instead.
there is a limit on free EUR cash withdrawals though, and your initial GBP faster payments transfer will probably take 2h
