Hey bunqers 🌈
Open a local currency account in seconds. It's totally free for Easy Money and Easy Green Personal and Business users, cool right?
With bunq, you save on conversion when spending abroad by getting the real exchange rate. With your Easy Money or Easy Green account you can now receive, convert, hold and spend in foreign currencies without having to leave your bunq app with Local Currencies.
Important note: Keep in mind that in order for us to support different currencies, we are partnering up with a currency cloud which is located in the UK. Since the UK is no longer a part of the EU, every outgoing transfer is a SWIFT transfer. Swift transfers can come with additional fees, which you can find in our terms and conditions you may find the pricing list here 💪
To give you a full fledged local currency account, there'll be some changes to our billing policy.
