How to Use Different Currencies


#1

Do I simply have the main screen on the currency I want to use and that currency will be in use on the card?

I have three currencies on here, but only used my default currency for the card activation.

Can I use multiple currencies in a day without getting the card frozen? I have a layover where the currency is different from the final destination’s.

Have a read here for how the system decides which currency to use.

As far as when/if your card will be frozen I am unable to help - I dont think Rev would divulge what triggers a frozen account.

It says “Your card will auto-convert your balance to the currency you’re spending in at the best available rate, so you don’t have to pre-purchase currencies” but in my post, I’ve stated I already pre-purchased currency.

I have three currencies on my card. Euro, HUF, and GBP. I want to use the pre-purchased GBP now and the pre-purchased HUF later today. How do I make the card use my GPB rather than my HUF? Afraid to use the card at the UK airport incase it takes from my HUF

What is your base currency?
What currency will your purchase be in?


#5

If you spend in the UK it will be deducted from your GBP account as long as you have a sufficient balance in it.


#6

It worked out well with the sterling at the airport.

Now, I’m in Hungary and want to take out some of the HUF I purchased via ATM. Ya know, for artisan market goods. Will ATMs likely charge me for withdrawing HUF from their machines?

Depends on each ATM
Haven’t used my card in Hungary :slight_smile:
When withdrawing make sure you decline DCC (ATM might offer you to convert for you)
Always pay/withdraw in local currency :+1:
