Knowing how to manage your money when you travel abroad can be stressful, so we’ve introduced Travel Assistant to give you all the information you’ll need when traveling abroad! ✈️
How does Travel Assistant work?
As an interactive map in the bunq app, you can check out travel and budgeting tips on how to best manage your money and use bunq in different locations. This way you can travel with ease and be stress free on your next trip! Find the Travel Assistant here.
Travel Assistant lets you know:
- A simple and easy-to-read overview of the exchange rate
Don’t worry about memorizing exchange rates. We’ll give you a reminder
- Whether or not you have enabled card payments for the country of your destination
This topic can walk you through how to do this.
- Which bunq card you should use
Some countries prefer Maestro, some Mastercard. Now you won’t have to remember which.
- If other bunqers have been there before
Learn from their experiences so you know what to expect when you arrive.
- Tips & tricks for different countries provided by our community
All travel tips are welcome!
You can also enable location-based push notifications, so you can be an expert on your destination as soon as you land! 🛬
For these notifications we use geofences! This means that your device detects when you get to an airport and automatically alerts the bunq app of your arrival (so your location will not be logged in the app). If you then have Travel Assistant notifications enabled in the app, you’ll receive a push notification to give you travel tips before and after your departure into a new country.
