Revolut is a financial technology company that offers a range of digital banking services. It was founded in 2015 and is headquartered in London, United Kingdom.

Revolut's main offering is a mobile app that allows users to open a digital bank account, which can be used for spending, saving, and transferring money in multiple currencies. The app also provides budgeting tools, insurance, and investment services.

Revolut's currency exchange feature enables users to exchange money in more than 30 currencies at the interbank exchange rate, which is typically lower than the rate offered by traditional banks. The app also offers a range of payment options, including contactless payments, online payments, and peer-to-peer payments.

In addition to personal banking services, Revolut also offers business accounts for small and medium-sized enterprises, which provide features such as automated bookkeeping and invoicing, expense management, and team management tools.

Revolut has gained popularity for its low fees, fast transactions, and user-friendly interface, and has attracted over 16 million users worldwide as of 2021.

24/7 availability- anytime, anywhere

No matter where you are, at home or abroad, you can access your Revolut account via the app, check your account balance, control your savings, get customer support, make payments and even freeze your debit card if needed. In addition, get real-time notifications every time you make a transaction, so there won’t be any surprises at the end of the month. No need to make appointments, stand in line and lose working hours to manage your finances.

Get approved fast

Opening an account with Revolut is simple, with no lengthy paperwork. Just download the app, prove your identity, top up your account and you’re ready to go. Revolut doesn’t require a copy of your credit history to approve your account, meaning you can open an account and get approved in minutes.

Lower fees

Another main reason to use Revolut is the low (or no!) fees. Revolut has no physical branches, therefore they can offer lower fees than traditional banks – especially when it comes to ATM withdrawals, money exchange/transfer and payments abroad. For example, Revolut offers zero fees on all transactions, including purchases made overseas!

Makes traveling easier

Revolut = borderless banking. Low/no exchange rates and low/no ATM withdrawal fees worldwide make traveling a whole lot easier (and cheaper) than with traditional banks- especially in the eurozone. And for added safety, freeze or unfreeze your debit card while you travel, directly in the app.

Go paperless

One of the frustrating things about traditional banks is the amount of documents, contracts and letters that are sent to your mailbox. With Revolut everything you need is in the app and all communications are sent to your app or your email. Gone are the days of rummaging through piles of paper around your house – and protecting the environment is the cherry on top.
