Features and Benefits

Travel Money

Notably, travel money is the cash you’ll use in a foreign country you are travelling to. You are required to acquire foreign currency from your local bank before travelling; otherwise, you risk exchanging your currency at a higher rate when you go with your local notes. Therefore, NatWest allows you to order travel money at least 10 days before the travel date.

The money will either be delivered to you or pick from the nearest branch. Your order limit could vary between £100 and £2,500. However, if you order travel money that is below £500, you’ll have to pay an extra fee to cover the delivery price.

Holiday Loans

NatWest offers quick holiday loans of an amount ranging from £1,000 to £50,000. The loan you take has a representative annual rate of 3.4%, depending on the amount you’re borrowing or circumstances.

Remnant Holiday Money

Vacations require a tremendous amount of money. When you take a vacation abroad, you set aside the money you’ll use to buy items you can carry back home. In that case, you might order extra travel money that you can use. So, where will you take the extra money, especially if it’s in foreign currency form? NatWest repurchases foreign currency.

Nonetheless, the bank doesn’t take back coins or notes that are not in perfect condition. You, therefore, have to care for the foreign notes by avoiding to fold them to prevent forming crises.

NatWest Cards

Visitors can be the target of thieves. It is, therefore, essential to divide your money and put it in various bags. For instance, you can save some money in the waist belt, handbag, and somewhere in the pocket of one of your clothes. Alternatively, you can use the NatWest debit or credit card. The card allows you to withdraw cash from ATM in selected foreign countries. Also, you can pay directly for the services you need abroad using your debit or credit card.

Note: you have to alert your bank before travelling that you’ll be using your card in a foreign country.

Exchange Rate

If you have a bank account with NatWest, you get the best exchange rate. Ideally, the bank has three categories, and each holder has a specific advantage over another depending on the group of your account. The categories include:

  • Reward silver
  • Reward platinum
  • Reward black

If you’re an account holder in any of the above categories, you get a mid-market exchange rate plus a likely mark-up. On the other hand, if you don’t own any of the above, you’ll get a mid-market exchange rate plus a higher mark-up.

NatWest travel money is a service that has helped me with my travel needs. The exchange rates are to die for as well as reasonable.
