It all started with a coming together of travel enthusiasts and fintech experts.
The travellers identified the problem, and the techies had the solution.
Whether it’s a payment online or overseas, we built a product that combines the convenience and security of bank cards, with the affordability of traditional money changers.
YouTrip is Singapore’s first multi-currency travel wallet with a prepaid Mastercard®, that allows you to pay in over 150 currencies with no fees. It also supports in-app exchanges of 10 currencies so you can lock in competitive rates anytime, anywhere.
So to the vacationer, the online shopper, the exchange student, the business traveller or anyone who’s ever asked why they should pay banks extra to pay in foreign currencies. Or why they should have to painstakingly look up exchange rates, and then queue up at the money changer.
Just know that we’ve already asked ourselves these questions. Only now we’ve got the answer.
Technology is nothing without purpose.
Driven by a commitment to create a smarter, easier way for people to pay in foreign currency, we’ve tapped on our team’s tech and financial expertise to create a secure, bank-grade platform that lets anyone, and we mean anyone, exchange currencies and make payments in just a few steps.
Our foreign exchange rates are updated by the minute and displayed to you on the YouTrip app at spot Wholesale Exchange Rates with no markups whatsoever.
Based in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand, YouTrip is made up of people with experience in leading tech companies and some of the world’s biggest financial institutions. As a group, we’re committed to bringing world-class mobile financial services to Asia, with a core focus on travellers.
YouTrip was launched in 2018 and is Singapore’s first, and leading, multi-currency wallet. Less than a year later, we raised a record US$25.5 million in pre-Series A funding. We’re a Principal Member of Mastercard and a major payment institution licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
