It might sound a bit like a sponsored post, but I am just a big fan of this card. I use it when I travel, I like all the addons they developed to make my life easier.

That’s all basic feature of the free version.
Review of Revolut premium
You can have a premium or metal card with more advantages such as travel insurance (40 days per year max trip). A free lounge pass for the metal, a cashback system of 0.01% on all your card transactions outside of Europe (0.001 inside Europe). With Premium and Metal, you can also take out more at cash points, 400 and 600 pounds equivalent per month.
Bonus: Play with the currency
You know the concept of trading. Moving money from one account to another. Well, I do this with the pound sterling and euros and pound sterling and dollars. When the rate goes down, I move money from one account to another either manually or you can set it in the app to do an automatic transfer.
For instance, you can set, move £1000 into euros when the rate is superior at £1 = 1.175€ for instance. Then when the euro gets stronger move the money back and get £1005.11 that’s a fiver earned 😉
This is just an example.
Here is a screengrab, I moved twice 1k and moved them back the next day, with the rate moving I made £12.74
