Loading revolut card in other currencies


#1

hi,
is it possible to load revolut card in other currencies than eur, usd, gbp and avoid currency exchange fees?
in my case i can only load my revolut card with norwegian or swedish kroner and bank does conversation, which makes loading revolut pointless. any ideas…

I have a similar problem toping up from Euros in Portugal.
Would be nice if there were local bank accounts.

without them, the best option is to use transferwiser to transfer from other countries back to the UK to Revolut barclays account.

Hi @bonviveur,

At the moment, the rule is that you should top up in the currency that your bank account is held in. For example, if you have a UK bank account make sure you top up in GBP. If you don’t your bank will convert the money for you and charge a huge fee! If you are topping up via a bank transfer outside of the EU your bank may charge you a large international wire transfer fee as such transfer would go via SWIFT.

We aim to change this in the future and add more currencies.

how does that work for EU banks in euros but where the transfer is considered international?
any hopes of local countries bank accounts?
