Revolut is one of the fastest-growing digital banks. It started in 2015 as a travel card that provided cheap exchange rates but has now grown into a global financial superapp for handling all things financial.¹ In this article, we’ll look at how best to withdraw money from Revolut.
Revolut has multiple ways for you to withdraw money from the app. Here are a few ways to do that:
- Withdraw with a Debit Card: Revolut provides its users with a Mastercard or Visa debit card that can be used worldwide. You can also create a virtual card for online purchases. However, this option is mostly for purchases rather than withdrawals to yours or someone else’s bank account.²
- Withdraw to bank account: You can withdraw your money from Revolut directly into your bank account. You can transfer money into your local personal account, or internationally into another account with a different currency.³
- ATM withdrawals: You can withdraw money from ATM Machines globally via Revolut’s supported providers. ⁴
As you can see, there are a few different ways to withdraw from Revolut.
One important thing to know is how much it costs to withdraw money from Revolut. The fees depend on the type of subscription you have with them. Here’s a quick rundown of withdrawals fees per subscription.⁵
|Local transfers||£0.2 per payment after the free allowance||100 free transfers then £0.2 per payment for anything over||1000 free transfers then £0.2 per payment for anything over||Free|
|International Transfers||£3/payment + 0.4% markup on FX||No fees for transfers below £10K (both inbound and outbound) then £3/payment + 0.4% markup on FX||No fees for transfers below £50K (both inbound and outbound) then £3/payment + 0.4% markup on FX||Free|
|ATM withdrawals||2% fee on all withdrawals||2% fee on all withdrawals||2% fee on all withdrawals||2% fee on all withdrawals|
Please keep in mind that there's also a fee of 1% for exchanges in money currencies that are traded less and so are not always easily available. These currencies are THB and UAH. They also charge a fee of 0.5% for exchanges on weekends and bank holidays (in London) because exchange markets are generally closed and less currency is traded during these times.
Revolut currently supports these currencies: AUD, BGN, CAD, CHF, CZK, DKK, EUR, GBP, HKD, HRK, HUF, JPY, NOK, PLN, RON, SEK, USD, ZAR.
If you’re dealing with higher amounts and don't want to get a subscription, consider using an alternative like TransferWise to take advantage of the real exchange rate for all transfers without limits and conversion in over 50 currencies. You can also take advantage of the multi-currency account and receive payments in EUR, USD, GBP, AUD, NZD, PLN, RON and HUF for free. This also comes with a multi-currency debit card that you can use while traveling or simply for purchases in different currencies. See how Revolut is compared to TransferWise.
How you withdraw money from Revolut depends on the type of withdrawal that you enact.
Withdrawing with a debit card on an ATM is very simple, and it follows the normal withdrawal process. The only major difference is that you should select to be charged in the local currency of the country that you are in. This ensures that the Revolut exchange rate is used.
Transferring to another bank account is pretty simple too.
- Simply tap the Payments tab in the Revolut app, then click Transfer, followed by Add bank account.
- You will then be asked to add the recipient’s bank details, the amount and currency, and hit send.
Transferring to a Revolut account is also very easy. All you need to do is either search for your friend’s username or use their phone numbers if you have them. Just click payments, and then the + button, and you’ll see your friend’s name with a big blue R in front. Just tap their name, select the amount you want to send, and the currency, and they’ll receive it instantly in their Revolut account.
To set-up a direct debit:
- Just provide the company with your bank account details, as seen in the Revolut app (only available for EUR or GBP).
- For direct debits that require a GBP address, just input: Revolut Address: 7 Westferry Circus, Canary Wharf, London E14 4HD.
