I’m a relatively new user to Revolut. I’ve got my card and have successfully used it in the UK with my UK British Pound account.
I’m off to the USA in a few weeks and having read the FAQ’s, would like clarification to check I’ve Got this right.
So … firstly I top my card up using my UK bank account. This will then show on my Revolut balance as British Pound.
Whilst in the USA, I use my Revolut card and get the exchange rate stated? (Although I believe I can exchange to US $ earlier if the rate is good??).
Do I pay any fees for this?
I know to use in local currency (US $) but wondered if there are any fees just to use the card, or is it just a simple ‘use at this exchange rate’ calculation?
In the highly unlikely event that I would use my card to withdraw cash from an ATM, am I right in thinking I need to use ‘checking’ or ‘saving’ account and also decline any conversion?
I appreciate I may be staying things that everyone knows, but as a new user I just want to clarify!
Thanks in advance!
