    Revolut card delivery times 26th Jan 17 at 9:24 PM
    I'm off to Europe and the Middle East next month and just discovered Revolut last night.

    So far I think its fantastic, I've downloaded the app and added funds in order to get a physical card which I want to use for withdrawing cash from ATMs.

    However, I'm due to travel from 3rd February and stupidly didn't realise till I had submitted my order that the delivery time for the card can be up to 12 working days.

    On the app it says 'Issued - Jan 26', then 'Posted - Jan 27' and then 'Expected - Feb 6'.

    What has been your experience of delivery times with the card? Do they generally arrive before the maximum deadline they state? I'm hoping I get it within the next few days, there's only 6 working days till I travel though

    Remember that you can only withdraw £200 per month without penalty.

    Metro Bank debit card is disbursed on the spot and would cover you for the European trip.

    Revolut will send you a card in a day or two for an extra charge, ask on the app chat.

    The Monzo card is free and will arrive a day or two after you load £100, having jumped the queue by signing up via the link in the MSE Prepaid cards article.
    There are cash withdrawal limits.

    Opening a Metro Bank account in one of their SE England branches provides their card in 40 minutes or so, fee-free in Europe only.

    Travel with more than one source of funds.

    Since that time, card delivery has been reported to be just a few days. But you can ask on the in-app chat about the current expected delivery time.
