revolut

Revolut

One of the most popular choices for banking needs when traveling. A simple debit card that comes with an app and allows for easy management via the app and some fee-free ATM withdrawals. In case your card gets stolen or you lose it, you can freeze it in the app immediately and request a new one. A painless process compared to more traditional banking.

n26

N26

Similarly to Revolut, N26 makes it super easy to manage your finances on the go. Their user friendly app, low fees, and useful integrations—like Transferwise, makes it a welcome addition to the nomad traveling lifestyle.

monzo

Monzo

Similarly to Revolut and N26, Monzo caters to the nomadic crowd. Unlike the other two, you currently need to be a resident in the UK to get a Monzo card. They hope to launch internationally in the future.

TransferWise

TransferWise

For getting paid by clients internationally.

Venmo

Venmo (US)

Great for settling bills between friends (if all have U.S. accounts) with no fees.

payoneer

Payoneer

For getting paid by clients. Compare fees to TransferWise for your specific situation before settling on one of them.

paypal

PayPal

PayPal likely needs no introduction. For nomads, the best use for PayPal is likely payments to friends and family (assuming you can’t use Venmo) as well as purchasing things from websites you don’t trust with your credit card number for an extra layer of security.

splitwise

Splitwise

Splitwise is a bill-splitting app for friends to keep track of expenses and IOUs. It keeps track of how much you’re owed or you owe and you can choose to settle the bill in one big payment.
