Whilst on holiday recently I had the need for a certain feature and thought that others might have come across the same need.
Whilst out having dinner in a restaurant in spain the prices where all in Euros of course and as I was going to pay the final bill for my whole family i felt myself wondering if i would have had enough currently in my monzo account to pay after the mastercard exchange rate had been applied.
TLDR: A handy calculator within the app to check if my balance would be enough for a purchase in a foreign currency.
You just rocked my world! I just downloaded it and it works impressively well. I’d be fantastic to have such calculator (or maybe an integration) on the monzo app
(Press ‘Help’ search ‘Contact us’ or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800 802 1281)
I’m not sure I’d use it, personally. Given that whatever rate Monzo offers on the date of purchase is liable to change on presentment, I generally use Siri to get an approximate value. It’s always been close enough in my experience.
Of course, close enough for me may differ from close enough for you.
I’ve just used Siri to convert 100 Euros. It’s £88.23 - close enough for me.
