The Standard account will cost you €0 per month and offers a number of the features that has made Revolut so popular. These include a free UK and IBAN account, the ability to spend in over 150 currencies at the interbank rate and access to cryptocurrencies. However, you’re limited as to how many ATM withdrawals you can make (up to €200 per month) and there is also a limit on how much you can exchange in fiat currencies.
Revolut Premium is the digital bank’s mid-tier account which costs €7.99 per month. You get all the features of Revolut Standard and then some. You can exchange in fiat currencies without a limit and have a higher ATM withdrawal limit of €400 per month. You will also get insurances, express card delivery, disposable virtual cards among other perks.
