    Just been looking at available rates from suppliers and looked at Revolut site. I may be looking in the wrong place, but I can't see what rate they are offering just now, can anyone advise please, before I download the apt.

    Post office money today 1.2480 !!

    Thanks in anticipation.

    It beats everyone and with no silly quantities involved whether you buy £100 or £1000 still the interbank rate

    Be aware that because you can keep multiple currencies on it, if you make a cash withdrawal abroad the machine will often ask you if you want to transact in sterling or euro. Always select the local currency

    You can't use the website for Revolut. You have to use the smartphone app.

    Yes that's fine but it doesn't take advantage of buying euros when the rate is great.
    1800€ of my money was bought at over 1:40 in November

    Well I'm struggling, have got the app address to download the app, but my samsung seems to want to transfer me to the google play store. Am I missing a move or two. Any advice much appreciated.

    Yes. Forget the website or web address.

    Just go to the Google Play store, search Revolut and download it from there.

    Everything is then done via the app. You register, set up an account, provide your top up card details, order your physical Revolut card, top it up and exchange currencies all from within the app.

    But I didn,t want €1800 in november and if I wanted the best rate I'd study it more.For convenience and the best rate of the day clarity is hard to beat.

    Revolut beats it every day.

    We have a Clarity card and you don't ever get spot rate.
