WeSwap - Online Travel Money For Cheap

How Does WeSwap Work? 
WeSwap is a peer to peer currency exchange service. It matches travellers going in the opposite directions and swaps their money directly. WeSwap currency swaps top up your free prepaid WeSwap Mastercard (which supports 16 different currencies simultaneously). WeSwap is available on the web and mobile app (Android and iOS). 

What Exchange Rates Do You Get & What Fees Do You Pay? 
WeSwap gives you real exchange with minimal commissions, which is up to 10 times cheaper than a bank or currency exchange office. Fees are based on how quickly you need to swap your money. Immediate swaps have 1.4% fees, 3 day swaps have 1.3% fees, and 1 week swaps have only 1% fees. 

How Do You Spend Money? 
First you need to load up your prepaid WeSwap Mastercard via debit card or bank transfer, then you can perform your WeSwap currency exchange. After this, you can spend money abroad by making card payments (no transaction fees) or you can withdraw money from a bank machine (small fees if your withdrawal is below a set amount €250, $300, £200, etc). The WeSwap card is smart so you can hold up to 16 different currencies simultaneously on your WeSwap Card, and it will always make payments in the local currency of where you are.

What Happens After Your Trip? 
With any leftover currency, you can either leave it on your card for your next trip or you can swap it back to GBP or another currency.

Are You Interested In Trying Out WeSwap? 
Carrying a WeSwap Card with PIN protection is far safer than carrying around cash abroad.
