Bureau de change fees

Hi All,

I hope everyone is well. Does anyone know if Monzo charge fees when paying for money in advance? (As it’s cash).

I know some cards charge a fee when using bureau de change, but wasn’t sure of the Monzo policy.

Thank you :slight_smile:

Monzo don’t charge any fees, though the bureau you’re using my charge a fee, but that’s on them not Monzo.

Edit: you’re possibly thinking credit cards which can charge a fee as buying cash with credit, which is similar to a cash withdrawal, and is charged accordingly.

No, Santander used to charge for buying currency with a debit card.

Quite a few years ago, but they called it a “quasi”-something :man_shrugging:

I’d never heard of it or experienced it :sweat_smile:

Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply. Good to know there’s no fees involved. Other family members have been charged with other banks as they look at it in the same way as withdrawing cash from an ATM.

Thanks again,
