Included in your Citigold personal banking service is a Sterling current account that gives you the opportunity to also hold US Dollar and Euro current accounts, with no additional fees. What's more, all your current accounts can be accessed using just one Citigold Visa Debit Card.

Having accounts in multiple currencies provides an efficient way of banking when you are on the move. As long as the Citigold current account you're using is in the local currency, you can make debit card purchases or withdraw cash from a Citi ATM without incurring transaction or conversion charges.

Please note that cross-currency transactions and any funds you transfer between accounts will be subject to the relevant Citi UK reference exchange rates at the time.

Three currency accounts, one debit card

As a Citigold client, you have the benefit of being able to hold multiple accounts in different currencies – with the option to access whichever one you want, wherever you happen to be – with just a single debit card. You can change the currency account your Visa debit card is linked to via Citi Online. It's quick to change your card linkage from Sterling to Euros or US Dollars, so you can pay for your breakfast in pounds and your lunch in dollars.
