Revolut, the global financial super app with more than 30 million customers worldwide, has launched ‘Experiences’ – an in-app marketplace for tours, activities, and attractions, giving users the opportunity to book their travel experiences directly in the Revolut app and receive up to 10% cashback (T&Cs apply), great rates and no booking fees charged by us. So you’ve got more money for when you’re away.
Available to Revolut customers in the UK and Europe, Experiences is the latest addition to the super app’s suite of travel products. Whether you want to view the Parisian skyline from the Eiffel Tower, traverse the rocky Agafay Desert on camelback, or take a relaxing dip in Budapest’s Széchenyi Thermal Baths, there are over 300,000 Experiences to choose from.
To start booking, existing customers can go to ‘Hub’ and click on ‘Experiences’ in the Revolut app. New customers can first download the Revolut app on their smartphones on Google Play or Apple Store and sign up to immediately access Revolut Experiences.
Customers can search locations, attractions, and experiences using filters to find their perfect day out, and book a range of available times and dates. Customers pay for the Experiences using their Revolut account, and cashback is paid instantly post successful booking completion. Customers can earn 3% cashback on Standard and Plus plans, 5% cashback on Premium, 10% on Metal and Ultra plans.
Revolut’s suite of features is the ultimate travel companion, as customers can book accommodation through Stays, split bills for group trips, exchange foreign currency in 30+ currencies, and travel insurance is included depending on the Revolut plan.
This time last year, the majority of countries in Europe had recently removed Covid travel restrictions, leading to a rise in travel. However, this year, Revolut data reveals that the interest in holidays is still rising, as the number of people in Ireland spending on tourist attractions is up by 20% year on year (June 2023 compared to June 2022).
Christopher Guttridge, General Manager of Lifestyle Products at Revolut, said: “We know that new experiences are the best part of holidays. Therefore, we’re excited to now offer our UK and EEA customers access to the world’s largest marketplace for tours, activities, and attractions with the launch of Revolut Experiences.
“Experiences joins our suite of travel products, as we continue to deliver ongoing innovations aimed at meeting our customers’ travel needs to supercharge their trips – including holiday home rentals, hotels, travel insurance, and currency exchange. As the global financial super app, we continue to revolutionise travel, helping our customers experience the world seamlessly.”
The expansion of Revolut’s suite of travel products comes as it recently launched its new ultimate membership plan, Ultra, which offers ‘Cancellation for Any Reason’ insurance. Ultra members will be refunded up to £5,000/€5,000 per year for flights, trains, accommodation or events (Insurance T&Cs apply).
