Don’t fly without your Curve card this summer – we’re scrapping weekend foreign exchange fees from 1 June to 31 August 2022.
So you can spend abroad with any of your cards and never get charged a fee. Yep, even your credit card! So you can use your credit card on holiday and rack up rewards points while you’re there!
AN EXCHANGE RATE AS GOOD AS MONZO, FOR ALL YOUR CARDS.
Like Monzo, we use the Mastercard exchange rate and don’t add any markups. So you’re always getting a fair deal. But with Curve, you get that exchange rate across all your cards. So even if your bank or credit card offers a lousy exchange rate or nasty fees – you can bypass it with Curve.
More good news!
We’re doubling the monthly limit on Curve Standard, so you can spend up to £1000/month fee-free on weekdays. There’s no monthly limits on how much you spend on weekends
Now make this permanent and we are good.
It seems they got a wake up call
Totally agree, at least for premium or metal customers
Exactly 100%. At least they’re trialing it so that’s a start.
We’re scrapping weekend fees from 1 June to 31 August.
Sorry Curve, but your news are so 2000s… if I was going to go abroad I would still use my Starling of Chase card to be worry free for fees 24/7, 365 days of the year. I would never use my Curve card to buy anything abroad either online or in person, which is a shame
Agreed especially after they dropped the Interbank rate. I just use my Crypto.com card now.
I think Crypto.com uses the Visa rate ~+0,5%
With that said I can in fact live with Curves Mastercard rates in Euro countries with under 1% mark-up against the Euro typically. Nice with only one card there everyday.
I sure hope this is the result of the recent research into the FX fees and our opinions about it as passionate Curve customers and small-scale investors.
I hope indeed that this is a trial run and that you won’t go back to untruthful statements: Curve FX Community Feedback - #38 by hind
Just remove any limits and find other ways to generate revenue. So complex to keep track of the limits and when they apply, for most not even a way to check easily in-app.

Perfect interbank rates - my app says a 0.5% markup applies after €15,000
Bravo for this. Off the California soon
Not sure how you can have a thread called ‘No fees overseas on any card’ when the first post says there are fees after the first £1,000. Unless you’re off to a hostel, you’re going to be charged a fee by Curve on their normal card.
That is a lie. They don’t have interbank rates, they use Visa rates.
It’s good that Curve finally realised this but this should have been the default. Hopefully it will stay this way.
Correct me if I’m wrong but it was always free up to £500 a month? Do they use the mastercard rate on the day still and what other fees were I unaware of?
