    Hey guys,

    Anyone opened a current account with any of these mobile banks such as Monzo, Starling, Revolut?

    I highly recommend them! I'm currently using Revolut now and waiting for the Metal card to come through. You can hold different currencies and crypto.

    They all share similar features such as freezing bank card, spending notifications and graphs to show your spending.

    Customer service is so much better too!

    Been using Revolut for about 18 months now, very happy with it. Shame some banks are now charging for ATM withdrawals when using it.

    Never had to contact them, can't comment on customer service. I know they are doing well but I would not put my life savings there (however me & my wife did exchange our savings with it when we left UK).

    I have a Monzo card and a starling bank card. Ill put money on them for when I go abroad as you dont get charged commission onf th first £200 in the first month for the monzo card and the first £300 for the first month on the starling card, which is handy.

    Recently opened a Starling current account mainly for the "spaces" feature which allows you to create virtual money pots. Recommend it so far.

    My classmate did the same thing, but the evaluation was not very high.

    Had a Revolut card for a while. Pretty good although I use my traditional cards more

    What is the best way to withdraw say 10x£100 per month from an ATM abroad with low / zero charges ?

    With Revolut, Monzo etc you have a limit on withdrawals. I used to use Halifax clarity credit card - of course cash withdrawals are subject to interest but nothing stops you withdrawing 1000 and repaying the card later same day, or the next. Interest should be negligible

    Ditto I use this card all over the word and love it. Also pay it in full as you say or get fleeced but otherwise, free to withdraw cash anywhere in the world
