    MonzoTop up is easy
    i have a Monzo card after using the link on this site.

    Tested it yesterday locally for both PIN and contactless transactions and both were flawless, as expected.


    Top up is easy.


    Wanted a MasterCard back up for holiday after Supercard withdrew their services from 24 July 2017, just before my hols.


    Have travel Visa cards as well, so all set now.


    Monzo is definitely worth a look in my book. Will report further once holiday experience gained.
