I’m a bit of a Revolut newbie, so please bear with me if I’m missing something obvious! I’m trying to use my Revolut account to receive AirBnB payouts (I use AirBnb to host people in my apartment). I am from Malta and my Revolut base currency is in EUR.
Unfortunately, when I select Malta as my country on AirBnB, and then add my Revolut IBAN as payout account, it tells me that the IBAN is too short. (This is because the Revolut UK IBAN is only 22 characters long, but an IBAN from Malta is expected to be 31 characters long).
If instead I select UK as a country and add my Revolut account details, AirBnb only lets you get paid in GBP. So basically I’m losing money due to different exchange rates because I’m getting paid in EUR, but AirBnb is converting that into GBP.
Is there any way around this? Ideally, I want my IBAN from Revolut to be 31 characters long so that it matches with the country selected (Malta in this case). Is this possible?
