I'm headed to UK soon, should I get the Revolut or YouTrip card for this trip?

I'm heading there in May 2020, wondering which will offer me better rates?

Both cards are rougly similar but I will go for revolut as it offers more flexibility than Youtrip.

For one, you cannot withdraw money back into physical cash or to your bank account after it has been deposited into your youtrip account which can be done with Revolut.

Another benefit of revolut would be the ability to send money over to other revolut users and the ability to withdraw money from overseas ATMs.

If you plan on registering, you can sign up via my referral link to get a free Revolut physical card.

Both cards have their pros and cons and you may consider bringing both. (I did so recently so that I can share my experience about it in my blog.)

If you are looking at YouTrip, here is all the information to help you get started: https://www.blog.pzl.sg/what-is-youtrip-singapore/

From my testing, YouTrip gives a slightly better rate but the difference is insignificant.

On the other hand, Revolut allows you to withdraw $350 overseas without any charges from the card. (YouTrip charges $5 per withdrawal.). Hence, it is good for this purpose.

With this in mind, you may work along the line on how you intend to spend the money while you travel. This will help you to make a more informed decision.

In case you intend to sign up for YouTrip, there is a promo code that you can use in my post. Let me know if you want a referral code for Revolut too.

Enjoy your trip!
