Revolut is a scam. They lure people in with their low exchange rates. If you need it for small amount currency exchange or to withdraw in a foreign country, it will do the trick. To use it as a bank or to make international transactions would be a disaster. Among others they have a very bad customer service and management, which is unpleasant and discriminating.
They requested lots of information for an international transaction. After it was provided they told they do not cooperate with the transferring bank. The reason is ridiculous. Especially because they knew the name of the bank from the beginning.
Also I have advised them to my friends. Which I know regret of having done. As you have to ask them for that bonus hanging on the stupid chat for days and those friends come back complaining about Revolut.
Therefore I decided to warn the rest. Do not use them for anything else than withdrawal or payment in foreign countries or avid altogether. There are better alternatives.

Full of features the normal banking system cant come close to beating.

Excellent bank, no comparison....From money box saving of spare change even into crypto to the best exchange rates available with one card multi currency wallet there is no easier way to manage your fiat.

Great for International Payments

Love Revolut, i use this as my secondary bank to send over payments to my daughter abroad, it's just so simple and quick to do just how it should be!

Avoid like a plague, everything is hunky dory but if things go wrong expect terrible service, I referred a friend to revolut to get £17 referral bonus, I was told that I had the refer the friend by the 2nd of March, I sent the link and 1 friend decided to do it, they met all the criteria, waited for the card and used it which was the last criteria to be met, after a couple of days, neither of us had the bonus, I chatted to Revolut, they told me I missed the deadline, I was like no, my friend opened the account within the March 2nd deadline, no say revolut, they had to use the card as well as everything else before the 2nd March, my friend didn't receive the card until the 7th march, so the offer was basically impossible to achieve! Revolut did not seem to understand this fact and the guy I spoke to on the chat kept blaming it on me! Eventually after escalating they paid me the £17 as a Gesture of goodwill, I paid £12.99/month for the metal which apparently gives you priority support as well as other things, I dread to think how they treat free customers, but after paying this amount for well over a year to be treated so poorly is worse than experience I've had from what these NU Banks call the 'dinosaur' banks! I've now closed the account and you should be careful before opting for these charlatans as your digital bank of choice, I've just moved to Curve, so far much better!

WARNING. This app appear to be a scam.

I have deposited above 10k on my Revolut account, but I'm no longer able to access the app. It appears Revolut has blocked the account and when I try to get in contact with the company they're not replying.

DO NOT USE THIS APPLICATION

‘Revolut’ has changed the way they are processing transactions. Prior to January 2020 the transactions were always charged as normal purchases, however this year they are now processed as cash transactions, meaning members are now incurring a cash fee charge and cash interest on each transaction.
There has not been any notification to the users of this important change and customer service is not helping or even considering compensation.

After few headaches and conversations with support it got sorted and i managed to get a refund for the charges. Aparently Revolut indicates that this is due to the credit card bank not dealing with Revolut requests properly, hence applying a fee as if you were taking advance cash transfers or similar from your credit card when topping up Revolut app, though when i contacted my bank, it seems that is due to Visa (credit card provider) and Revolut agreement on top up transactions assocaited to credit cards. Since this is my main use i am not sure if i will keep using Revolut.

it seems to work great for other transactions or as a bank though.

Referrals & repeat business are the two marks of a successful business

I heard about Revolut from a friend who then sent me an invite. The app is easy and transparent. I've never had any problems using it - and theFX rates are fantastic! I've since sent invites to anyone who's asked me about a currency card.
