Were there any challenges faced? Any hacks to share?
Yes, I used Youtrip in Japan and absolutely loved it - no challenges faced.
The only thing with Japan is that not all places accept card - for eg. my favourite matcha soft serves were all paid in cash. But for all the mastercard friendly places, Youtrip is awesome! Haven't used Revolut yet, but it would be good to test both out.
I used YouTrip in both Japan and Taiwan, it was pretty awesome in both countries. Worked flawlessly and gave me really good exchange rates!
The best part, was that back then i could link my YouTrip to UBER (in taiwan) i dont know if this is possible now? But that was only 3 months back! (in July 2019)
I used YouTrip almost everywhere in Taipei, and the contactless and chip worked perfectly. Of course, I couldn't use it at the night markets but overall had a great experience. Exchange rates were great and there were no fees, really saved me a great deal of time and effort from queueing up at money changers or just fumbling with cash all the time.
I prefer Revolut because of how international it is and how it’s free to withdraw money overseas. The UI is also great to track your expenditure.
I’d say to sign up for both while there are perks to signing up. If you are keen to sign up for Revolut, sign up here and get $10: https://revolut.com/referral/daphnek10!G10D21
I used YouTrip in Taiwan. It’s a breeze, just use as per normal like a MasterCard. The card will auto convert the currency for u base on that day’s market value
