Important news about your swaps & the EU Referendum

Update 24/06/2016 15:30: We've resumed instant and 3 day swaps now that the markets have stabilised slightly. Thank you for your patience and apologies to anyone who was unable to swap. There is still lots of volatility in the market so we'll be keeping an eye on everything very closely and keep you updated at all times.

Thanks again, The WeSwap Team 


With the EU Referendum in the UK on Thursday 23rd June, we've been putting plans in place to make sure your swaps are processed as smoothly as possible.

Because exchange rates are likely to be extremely volatile, we're expecting potential trading limits or delays in the UK banking system on Thursday and Friday.

To protect our travellers from these issues, WeSwap will be limiting new swaps to 7 days only from 8pm (GMT+1) Thursday 23rd. Once the Referendum results are settled on Friday, we’ll resume our instant and 3 day swap options. Therefore if you urgently need to do an instant swap, please make sure to do it during the day on Thursday.

Don't worry - if you have a swap running that's scheduled to complete between Wednesday evening and Friday, it will complete as normal. Spending on your WeSwap card will work as normal throughout too.

We're committed to taking the stress out of travel money, so rest assured we'll be working very hard to minimise any disruption to you as much as possible.
