Almost all of us can say we have international friends or family – either living in the UK or abroad.
We are all now truly global citizens – we should live in a world without borders.
Only a few short years ago, it was nearly impossible to stay in regular touch with friends abroad, our options limited to pricey long-distance phone calls or old-fashioned letters.
The world has changed. Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook, email; there are now thousands of cheap and easy ways we can stay in touch with our nearest and dearest.
We think the same should be true of international money transfers. We believe currencies should also become truly borderless. We would like to see the fees and charges currently imposed on us by foreign exchange providers permanently eradicated, in the same way that Skype and WhatsApp have removed fees from international calls and messaging. We think we should be free to spend and send our money as we see fit.
Each year in the UK, $1.76bn is spent in fees and charges by people choosing to spend and send money abroad. With Revolut, that cost could be reduced to zero.
To mark the launch of our new app and prepaid card that does just that, here is the first in a series of competitions to celebrate our international friendships and relationships:
