Sunday thoughts: how much time do you spend sitting on your couch dreaming about your next travel destination? Cause we do that almost every weekend and most of us have their top travel lists ready for after Corona.
To make it easier for you to visualize your next adventure, check out the Travel Assistant - an interactive map in the bunq app. 🗺
So how can Travel Assistant help you explore all destinations right from your couch? Straight from the bunq app, it tells you everything you need to know about managing your money at your next destination. Wherever you feel inspired to go, the bunq app puts your mind at ease: exchange rates, which card to use, tips and tricks, you name it. Everything you need to enjoy carefree traveling, right at your fingertips. 📲
Where can I find it in the app?
This feature is available for Premium, Business, SuperGreen and Travel users.
If you are one of the lucky bunqers with the Public Beta version of bunq V3, then you will find this feature if you go to Me > Cards > Select your bunq card > Travel Assistant.
How does it work?
With the Travel Assistant you will get an accurate exchange rate, meaning that you hit the ground with a real world example of what things are gonna cost you when you’re abroad. Additionally, the bunq app tells you which card is best to take with you to any given country and prompts you to activate your card for that country. This way you’re confident to go out and spend in other countries straight away, a great feeling when everything around you is new. 🙌
You’ll get a push notification when you arrive in a new country or when you’re in an international airport. This push will take you to the Travel Assistant. From there, you can see countries with colored pins showing how well bunq works there (green, yellow or grey) or search for countries. Once you select a country, all the important info is there, such as the availability, activation and exchange rate.
Our Together Community is eager to help you with community tips, so you can read other bunqers’ experiences and share yours!
When you arrive in your home country, we will send you a push telling how much you saved with ZeroFX since you started the trip.
