A little about us

We believe that there are better ways for people to control their money. Easier, fairer ways.

Revolut started in 2015 with card transactions abroad without rubbish exchange rates or hidden fees. We’ve since added business accounts, vaults, insurance and even access to cryptocurrency exposure.

We reached 10 million customers as we rolled into 2020 and we're adding another million every quarter.
