N26: A very practical bank account

As a customer of this German neo-bank, I use my debit card very regularly in Mauritius to make payments, as there is NO FEE at all. 

This allows me to benefit from the advantageous exchange rate at the moment (EUR > MUR).

Please note that N26 uses the Mastercard exchange rate and does not add any extra charges. The transaction is immediate on the mobile application.

Withdrawals are also free if you have a premium account. Otherwise, it will be 1.7% commission per withdrawal.
