Revolut in West Africa (Cote d'Ivoire in particular)


#1

Hey all! Anyone have any experience using Revolut in West Africa, particularly in Cote d’Ivoire or anywhere where transactions are done in West African Francs? Heading over there soon and curious to know if I should expect any difficulties making cash withdrawals.

Thanks!

Hi,

Did you ever find out the answer to this question? I will be traveling soon in other countries in the region (though more to the east) and was wondering what the situation will be there. Thanks!

Hi Yash,

It works. Was able to withdraw West African Francs at essentially market exchange rate (GBP to XOF) from local ATMs. No issue at all.

Hi,
Done in July 2018. It works fine, and the exchanges rates are really good. Just pay attention to the monthly limit of £200 for free ATM cash withdrawal (standard accounts). There is a 2% fee thereafter.
