How it works

YouTrip is a multi-currency mobile wallet that comes with a free prepaid Mastercard. This card can be used to make contactless payments on POS (point-of-sale) terminals worldwide at anywhere that accepts Mastercard, offline transactions, as well as on EZ-Link readers on public transport in Singapore.

The app also comes with a host of convenient payment features, such as the conversion and storage of 10 different currencies, 24/7 in-app exchange rate monitor and locking in preferred rates.

Key features

The YouTrip app is straightforward, user-friendly and comes with key features including:

  • Free to use. There are no card fees and no minimum balance required to maintain your account.
  • Make overseas payments. Spend in 150 supported currencies at Mastercard’s wholesale exchange rate.
  • Zero currency conversion fees. Pay for online transactions without incurring any transaction fees.
  • Doubles up as an EZ-Link card. You can use the YouTrip card for public transport in Singapore, as well as 20 other cities including Kuala Lumpur, Sydney and New York. Simply activate the Mastercard Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) function to enjoy this feature.
  • Holds up to 10 different currencies. Monitor exchange rates, hold a balance or make an exchange between 10 currencies at any time.
  • Overseas ATM withdrawals. You can withdraw cash from all overseas Mastercard, Maestro or Cirrus ATMs, for a flat fee of 0% (or equivalent in foreign currency) per transaction.

  • Overseas cash withdrawal fee. S$5 (or an equivalent in the country’s local currency) will apply per withdrawal.

Can I withdraw cash with YouTrip from ATMs in Singapore?

Currently (December 2020), you’ll not be able to make cash withdrawals from local ATMs with the YouTrip card. However, this feature may be available in the future, so stay tuned for further updates.

The verdict

YouTrip comes with a number of benefits that make it an account worth considering. These include no foreign currency conversion fees, no ongoing fees and a useful app to monitor your spending.

However, you are currently unable to withdraw SGD from Singapore ATMs, so this should be considered if you aren’t using it just for travel abroad.

First-time users can order a free contactless YouTrip Mastercard and begin using your account once you receive it. Do note that the minimum top-up value to your YouTrip account is S$20.
