It’s a good question and one being frequently asked now that Monzo (and apps like it) are becoming ever more popular and widely used. The short answer and rule of thumb is this; if it’s a country that accepts Mastercard, then it’s a country that will also accept Monzo. 

To better help though we've listed details for some of the most searched for locations to help you get sorted for your travels. Remember, it's always wise to take a back up card with you and it's also strongly advised to always have some cash with you too, just to be safe. 

Monzo is great for use abroad as it doesn't add fees to the exchange rate and you also don't need to notify them in advance. You can also take out up to £200 every 30 days for free, or it's a 3% charge on withdrawals after that. However, not all locations support contactless payments or withdrawals via Monzo, so once again, your best bet is to check out the Monzo site for detailed advice. 

Lastly, while Monzo may not charge you conversion charges, that's not to say the ATMs won't! Take care where you withdraw money from and check the best ways to save money before you travel.
