FinTech Revolut has launched ‘Experiences’ – an in-app marketplace for tours, activities and attractions.

Users of the Revolut app in Europe can use it to directly book more than 300,000 of these experiences such as the Eiffel Tower, camel trips in the Agafay Desert and Budapest’s Széchenyi Thermal Baths.

They can receive up to 10% cashback, depending on the plan they have with Revolut, with no booking fees.

Customers can already book accommodation through Stays, split bills for group trips and exchange foreign currency in 30+ currencies. Travel insurance is also included, depending on the Revolut plan.

“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,” said Christopher Guttridge, general manager of lifestyle products at Revolut.

“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 per year for flights, trains, accommodation or events.
