I’m currently in SA and Revolut works like a charm. The only problem so far are the ATM of Standard Bank and ABSA Bank. They always want to add a 50 ZAR fee to my withdrawed sum (e.g. instead of 500 ZAR they will deduct 550 ZAR from my Revolut and keep the 50 ZAR).
The ATMs of FNB and Netbank work without this fee. So no problems and no fees here.
But there was one thing I was wondering about. On the slip of the ATM was stated that the Current Balance is 0 R (which may be correct because it’s a prepaid card). But then it also states an Available Balance of 36.336 R. What’s that? Can you explain this sum? I just have around 4.000 ZAR and 250 EUR in the Revolut account.
Summary: Card/Revolut works great in SA. Not all ATMs allow free cash withdrawals.
