Travelling with Monzo ✈️


Flights can be odd. On a recent RyanAir flight a colleague made two separate card purchases on the same card on the same flight and they were each processed differently incurring different charges :slight_smile:


Let us know how it went for you. Was monzo identified as a credit card everywhere?

Can we have a Barbados section

(Alex Sherwood) #63

Yes, just create a post “Monzo in Barbados” and it will be added to the list :slight_smile:

Hi Guys! Anyone travelling in Morocco with Monzo? I’ll be there next year for 3 weeks and wanted to be sure I could use the card!


Suggest you try


Kind of a new user whose come to the beta late (android) and think this is great / almost essential…

Eg I didnt even realize it was beta… Didnt know the android app was limited… Dont know fees… Etc etc…

Forums are great for a beta crowd and passionate users… But at the cross over point to an actual product for normal public more documentation and clarity is essential. A wiki would bridge that gap nicely and could be cultivated into a more ‘guide’ format easily.

Just to clarify, Monzo does not charge users fees (with one exception). Yes you may have to pay a fee to use Monzo to withdraw money from an ATM but that charge is being applied to the ATM provider, not Monzo.

There’s a risk that users would end up posting incorrect bugs (due to misunderstandings), if that post was a Wiki & this post seems to be working ok to me.

The Android - iPhone feature gap is being & will be addressed soon.

There is a post asking for more documentation here -

It is also worth noting that, in the UK at least, fees charged by the ATM don’t ever seem to be passed onto the customer by Mondo. I’m not sure that this was necessarily intentional, or if the ATM is just deciding not to charge it for some reason.

I have never been charged for using an ATM with Mondo, and regularly use one near my office which is meant to have a £1.99 fee for withdrawals.

This might be the case overseas too, though I don’t know about this at all.


Thats the benefit of a wiki though, its curated…

(Alex Sherwood) #70

So are these posts though? The benefit of the bugs list not being a Wiki is that incorrect bugs are never posted in a list that would appear to have been verified, to the average user.

As far as I know, there’s no review functionality built into Discourse which would enable other users to check edits to the Wiki before they’re posted…

(Ben Green) #71

Discourse does have a post moderation feature to approve others posts mentioned here, although that looks site wide and therefore obviously not enabled for Monzo.

(Alex Sherwood) #72

I’m guessing that you’re referring to this feature?

I’d be surprised if this feeds into Wikis though, it looks like it’s more designed for reviewing new posts, rather than edits.

It would be good if the feature was there but either way I think the known issues should be managed by Monzo.

Hi, I’m off to Perth on boxing day has anyone used it here or can anyone give me any advice ?

(Alex Sherwood) #74

You asked in the best place for anyone to post their tips :arrow_down: the first time :slight_smile:

I’m planning a trip to Zimbabwe, passing through South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.
Has anyone any experience of whether Monzo can be used at Victoria Falls for Hotels and Excursions?
I’ve only just arrived in this forum and haven’t found the Create Thread link.
Thanks to anyone who can help.
