Travelling to New York - deposit dollars or GBP?

Hello, I am travelling to New York soon and wondered what is the best way to pay money into my account before we go. Should I add Dollars or GBP?

There is a travelling with Monzo in America topic here that might answer all your questions and more:

And America in general here:

Monzo is a normal bank account. So if you try to add dollars, they’ll be converted to pounds.

Just add pounds and spend as normal in New York. And don’t forget to have a great time!


Thanks. Appreciate your help. All we have to do now is look forward to the trip!
