Monese UK card

Another Revolut alternative but these guys offer a UK account as well. App available for Android.

The FAQ https://www.monese.com/faq says you need an EEA address. This would rule out residents of Switzerland.

Re: Monese UK card

Does this give a full, usable British sort code + account number?

If so, does it allow transferring to Revolut (and the like)?

Just asking because all these newly emerging money services (such as Revolut, WeSwap, Transferwise, Currencyfair and now possibly Monese(?)) don't allow transferring directly between each other. Funds always have to go through a regular bank account because of money laundering regulations.

Re: Monese UK card

With Monese you get your own GBP account with sort code + account number. Same thing with N26 but they offer German accounts. Yes, you can make a bank transfer to top-up Revolut.
