We’ve got some big news, guys.
You can now use your card in even more places than ever. Online, that is (you can already physically use the card in over 180 countries).
Because WeSwap cards are (drum roll please) 3D Secure (or 3DS for short) verified. This opens up a whole new world of online payment options for WeSwap users (opening up new worlds is something we’re very keen on here). Meaning you can now book the flights, the hotel, the skis, the sun loungers, the lot. All on your WeSwap card. All tracked in the app. In more places than ever before.
Plus, and this is a big plus, if the website wants to charge you in a foreign currency, as many airlines and hotels do, you don’t have to pay their fees.
You’re going away. Somewhere nice, we hope? But it can be tough to know what to do, travel money wise. There’s a lot of options: travel cash, your normal bank card and a load of prepaid cards. Then there’s a lot of companies too, WeSwap (that’s us), Tesco, the Post Office, Revolut, Travelex.
Then there’s the jargon. Oh, the jargon! FX, Forex, Mid-market exchange rate, commission, a spread.
It’s hard work figuring out how to get the best deal. So, we’ve put together this blog for you to show you how WeSwap compares with the other options on the market.
If you really want to get to grips with the FX markets, give our Understanding How the Foreign Exchange Market works blog a read.
Whether you’re working hard to save money for a trip or planning every single detail, we know travellers are busy people. Too busy, perhaps, to monitor FX markets all day long?
Well, let us introduce WeSwap Smart Swap.
Smart Swap leaves us to monitor the markets for you. So you don’t miss out on more money for your holiday.
Just choose your own target exchange rate and amount. Then, if that target is reached any time before your own deadline, we’ll automatically swap your money. Read More
The remote worker goes by many names. Digital Nomad. Wi-fi vagrant. Dial-up bandit*. Jonny. They are the envy of the working world. For they have made the beach their boardroom, they’re working 5-9 (client availability permitting), they’ve swapped their desktop for a dongle, they are, to put it mildly, living the dream.
Or are they?
Frankly… yes. But does that mean remote working is easy? No. Doing it successfully is its own skill set. Doing it abroad? That’s practically an art form.
Does that mean you can’t do it?
Of course not! Because we’ve spoken to the experts, we’ve done our research, we’ve spoken to remote WeSwap workers** and we’ve put together our top tips for remote working while abroad. Read More
