WeSwap are offering you the chance to win £100 when you sign up ahead of the West Indies Test series!
Ahead of the tour, WeSwap are offering the chance to win £100 to all members who sign up for their travel card before the end of October. That’s around 250 Barbadian Dollars or 345 Eastern Caribbean Dollars, just in time for the tour.
Plus, they’ll chuck £10 on your card for free once it’s been topped up with at least £50.
The WeSwap card can be used in over 180 countries, at ATMs or anywhere you see the Mastercard symbol. They simply swap your money with other travellers, cutting out the middlemen, the unclear charges and the hidden fees. Making it up to 90% cheaper than banks and bureaux.
The app is super easy to use and lets you keep track of your spending (so you can see all the Banks you buy - the Barbadian beer, that is, they drink Piton in St Lucia, Wadadli in Antigua) and lets you send money between other WeSwap users, so there’s no more awkward bill splitting.
What is WeSwap?
WeSwap is the first ever peer-to-peer currency exchange. Their award-winning prepaid Mastercard is trusted by over 400,000 travellers, backed by Andy Murray and is featured on Money Saving Expert as one of their top travel cards.
Your WeSwap card can be used at any ATM in the world that accepts Mastercard, including the Caribbean. Use this handy link to locate a Mastercard accepting ATM while you’re out there. Withdrawing cash at an ATM will still mean you save up to 90% vs banks and bureaux. All you need to do is top up your account with GBP, get your pin number (don’t know your pin number? Click here), then use your WeSwap card like you would your regular debit card.
If you’re asked to select savings account or current account, select savings account.
You can make 2 ATM transactions per 24-hour period and a balance check at an ATM counts towards an ATM transaction – so best to use the app or the website to check your balance.
You can withdraw a maximum of £400 every 7 days.
If you’re given the option to be charged in your own currency or the local Barbadian dollars of Eastern Caribbean dollars, choose the dollars. If not, you’ll be opting in for Dynamic Currency Conversion, which can leave you liable to some outrageous exchange rates. This goes for anywhere in the world.
You’ll be charged a 2% fee for exchanges, this is included in the exchange rate.
ATM transactions over £200 are free of charge. They will cost £1.50 otherwise.
