Had a job in Denmark last week. Oh my god the Monzo card was a life saver.
I totally forgot to change any money before I left. Denmark doesn’t use the Euro, it used the Danish Kroner (think thats how you spell it.) As soon as I arrived monzo popped up a notification telling me the exchange rate.
£10 = roughly 100 Kroner so prices where really confusing at first.
But everywhere seemed to have contactless so I could just pay with the monzo card, I’d then get a notification on my phone of the purchase + what its conversion to £ is. Which helped me get to grips with the exchange rate.
It gave me an option in the notification to mark as an expense, which I did for the appropriate items. Also handy!
Finally when I was home it told me how much I had spent while I was away.
Colour me impressed. Last time I was working in another country my bank blocked my card, so I had to live off the small amount of cash I had converted before I left home. This was night and day.
Keep up the good work!
