The episode contains researches done by Aleks who uses Revolut for over 3 years now.
He is also a payed member and has a Revolut Metal card and is using most of the advanced features of Revolut. In this episode, you will learn what fees are out there in terms of withdraw from an ATM. Because still not everywhere in the world sellers accept cash and a lot of our listeners are travelers and this is an important piece of information for them.
The other thing we will cover is the money transfer fees. Aleks had used Revolut to purchase tickets and send money for various conferences, and it is good to know what are the fees behind the convenience Revolut brings to the table.
And lastly, you will learn about the stock trading and Bitcoin purchase. What are the fees behind them? Is Revolut good for such operations?
This is important, because many times we are really not aware about the fees we pay and we might end up behind our investment goals if we are not careful.
