Uruguay UYU exchange rate markup? / general markup request


I just did some transactions and a ATM withdrawal in Uruguay in UYU.
Am I correct that there is a markup of around 1.5%? It is a Tuesday, so not a weekend.
I sincerely hope to see that markups like that on THB (and also UYU?) will disappear.

What I would appreciate is that during weekend Revolut would block the payment (incl a temporarily markup) and then use the real interbank rate of monday morning/sunday evening when the FX markets open again instead of applying a 0.5-1.5% weekend markup to finally settle the bill (I see that Visa and Amex do that being a credit card).


Hello @Etienne,

Thank you for you feedback.

I have double checked it for you and it seems you have received the best available rate at the time of your transactions.

Im comparing this rate with the rate you have received at your ATM withdrawal at 14.2.17.

Please let me know if you have further enquiry.
