    Euros to GBP 1st Jul 18 at 11:25 AM
    I'm looking for a long term solution for money currently in euros being required in the UK in GBP. The most recent post I see on here is over a year old and recommended the revolut card. Is that still a good option? Any other alternatives with money saving being the main driver?


    Revolut appears to have a low monthly ATM withdrawal limit so another similar one might help. How does Monzo stack up?

    Have a look at the Transferwise borderless account which now comes with a debit card.
    Let's settle this like gentlemen: armed with heavy sticks
    On a rotating plate, with spikes like Flash Gordon
    And you're Peter Duncan; I gave you fair warning

    Do you need to withdraw the GBP in cash? If not, Revolut is still cost-free for conversion up to 5k/month, 0.5% fee thereafter, interbank rate (weekdays). Otherwise there's Fineco Bank UK multicurrency account or TransferWise Borderless Account. Monzo is not useful in that way.

    Yes cash. I'm reading about the Transferwise card just now and it looks promising.
