How Revolut Premium works

Revolut is a digital banking app designed to disrupt the traditional banking industry. With Revolut Premium, you can enjoy the functionality of a multi-currency wallet, a competitive money changer, and a budgeting assistant all in one. To get started, simply download the Revolut app to your phone.

Key features

  • Multi-currency account. Your Revolut Premium account can effectively function as a multi-currency account, letting you carry your balance in 28 different currencies.
  • International money transfers. Enjoy free foreign currency conversions with your choice of 30 different currencies. All currency exchange rates are pegged to interbank rates, which are the same rates used internally in a bank, and there’s no limit to the number of transfers you can make.
  • International payments. Revolut works with Visa to enable payments internationally (wherever Visa payments are allowed). This allows you to pay both online or in-person at retailers worldwide.
  • Budget control. Revolut neatly categorises your expenditure according to various criteria, allowing you to make sure you know exactly what you are spending on. At the same time, their Vaults feature allows you to break your balance up for different goals, with monthly limits set to prevent you from going over-budget.
  • Premium debit card. The Revolut Premium card is available in three colours: Space Grey, Silver or Rose Gold.
  • Fee-free withdrawals from ATMs. You can withdraw cash for free at ATMs up to $700 per month.
  • SmartDelay. Enjoy complimentary lounge passes for you and one accompanying guest if your flight is delayed of more than an hour. With Revolut Premium, you also gain access to more than 1,000 airport lounges around the world. All you need is to get your boarding pass and present your QR code.
  • Insurance. Revolut Premium offers complimentary insurance coverage for emergency medical or dental treatment. You’ll also be compensated you for any baggage delays or for lost or damaged items.

Fees and limits

  • Monthly fee. There is a S$9.99 monthly fee for Premium.
  • ATM withdrawal fees. There’s a 2% when you withdraw more than $700 per month. Note that you currently cannot withdraw cash from ATMs in Singapore.
  • Currency conversion. You’ll be charged a 0% fee to convert currency.
  • Weekend markup. Watch out for 0.5% markup on major currencies and 1% on exchanges over the weekend.
  • Additional card fees. Premium users may request additional cards (first one free) for $9 each.

The verdict

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.
