How to sign up
You can open an account with Revolut in a matter of minutes from your smartphone. Once you’ve downloaded the app, you will need to register and verify your identity. You can do this by providing a valid form of ID and snapping a selfie.
Once you’re verified, you’ll need to add funds to your account. You will need to wait for your physical card to be delivered but you can use your virtual cards as soon as you have money available in your account.
If you travel frequently or transfer a lot of money abroad, this card may be worth considering. The included insurances are especially useful as they’re active constantly, so you won’t need to sign up for a new policy each time.
However, if you aren’t going to use the extra perks available then you may not get enough value from the card for the €7.99 monthly fee.
