New Revolut user (old Curve/Mondo user) here. Sorry in advance for the long post!
I have read through the existing posts on using Curve and Revolut together, but I can’t find an answer to my questions anywhere.
I have a physical card in Revolut set to GBP which I plan on using in the UK, but I am traveling to Turkey in a month and wanted to avoid having to get a load of currency. Having read the posts on here, using ATM’s appears to be no issue, but the monthly limit (even on a premium account) would not be enough. I thought a solution to this might be:
Open a virtual card in Revolut --> Add the virtual card to Curve account as a new card --> Set currency in Curve account for new Revolut Virtual Card to Turkish Lira (TRY) --> Use curve card in Turkish ATM to draw as much as I need (you are allowed 10 withdrawals per month, no £/$/€ limiting up to £5k per month) --> Enjoy Holiday
My questions are:
- Is this even possible with a virtual card in Revolut? i.e. can I use the Curve card in an ATM and attach it to the virtual card, not the physical card?
- Does the currency setting on the Virtual Revolut card matter? i.e. do I have to set it as TRY like the Curve card, or does that not matter?
- I assume that if I deposit £1,000 in GBP to my Revolut account, I can EITHER convert that to TRY in advance and get the prevailing rate at the time of conversion OR leave it in GBP, make the ATM withdrawals in TRY without conversion and get the rate of the day. Is this assumption correct?
Thank you in advance for the help… I know its a little technical and specific!
