Your Monese account saves you serious money if you travel abroad

Your Monese account helps you save serious money if you travel abroad, no matter where you are in the world.

That's up to 5x cheaper than regular banks.

* Based on a comparison of the Tariffs of Retail Banking in Thirteen Countries by Van Dijk Management Consultants, 2013 and Monese’s analysis of the cost of account ownership across the top 5 banks in the UK with a combined market share of 85%. The USD/GBP Exchange rate at the time of data collection was 0.62 (November 2012).
1 There will be no monthly fee to pay during the 30 day trial period, however any currency exchange transactions will be charged as normal (as defined in our terms and conditions).
2 We charge a £2 minimum for any bank transfers that require currency conversion. For non-GBP card purchases and non-GBP ATM usage your money is converted at the wholesale Mastercard rate on the date they process the transaction, which may differ from the actual transaction date. Some retailers may charge additional fees.
