Managing your money got even easier

February 16, 2022

We’ve just added a couple of cool features that help you save time when it comes to banking. 

(More) local currencies🌍

Say goodbye to money transfers or currency exchange! With the last bunq Update, we’ve introduced a way for you to bank like a local, in multiple currencies. Now you can receive, hold, convert, and spend in 15 different currencies directly from the bunq app. You can use this improved feature when you travel, if you’re an expat juggling different home country vs. guest country currencies, or if you’re a freelancer that has clients all over the world. It’s 2022, so with bunq, money knows no borders. Spend or get paid your way!

Here’s a list of all Local Currencies:

  • Euro
  • US Dollars
  • British Pound Sterlings
  • Swiss francs
  • Polish Zlotych
  • Bulgarian Lev
  • Czech Koruna
  • Danish Krona
  • Swedish Krona
  • Norwegian Krona
  • Canadian Dollar
  • Australian Dollar
  • United Arab Emirates Dirham
  • Romanian Leu
  • Turkish Lira
  • South African Rand

Wanna hear another cool addition? We’ve just launched something called AutoCurrency, so you can keep money in the currencies you'll use and automatically pay in the local tender wherever you go. For example, if you have a USD Local Currency account and you’re enjoying a fabulous weekend in New York, you can pay with your bunq card and the app will automatically take money from your USD account. This saves you money with the real exchange rate!

Psss, expats! Check out or Local IBANs too!

Pay safely with DigiCards💳

While we all love to shop on our travels, sometimes an online session from our couch has to do. And for those times, you can now find DigiCards in your bunq app - the safest way to shop online. Protect your physical card’s details by using a bunq DigiCard (virtual card) for online payments. Have your DigiCard’s details automatically refresh after every purchase, or simply delete it and create a new one with just a tap in the app. Never worry about your data when shopping on any websites - we’ve got you covered.
