I love Revolut and I’ve been using it for almost a year now. I’ll be using it again this weekend in Sweden and I noticed that the app has updated with a lot more currencies.
Before there are only three: GBP, EUR, USD. So when I went to Sweden earlier I use the GBP account to just automatically convert transactions to SEK.
I can see that there are now three ways to use currencies abroad:
load GBP account using GBP credit card, then just use GBP for all non-GBP transactions
load GBP account using GBP credit card, then do an exchange to currency destination account (SEK) via the Revolut app
load currency destination account (SEK) directly using my GBP credit card
My credit card is Lloyds Avios, which actually is good in terms of forex transactions.
Can someone advise if it’s worth it to add tons of accounts to cater different currencies?
