Revolut lands in the USA!


Yes. You will only be charged the fees for the SWIFT transfer including any additional fees taken out from intermediate banks during the transfer. Depending on the amount to be transfered - let’s say £5,000 - these fees might be higher than the conversion fee at Transferwise.


From experience there are no fees for SWIFT USD transfers from :r: to transferwise, and a single $3.30 from transferwise to :r:


As an example, if I transfer $1000 the $3.30 transfer fee equates to .33 percent. This is about the same I have to pay for the conversion from USD to EUR at my local bank.
