App-based banking service Monzo have gone live with a new premium account called Monzo Plus.
Previously launched as a small-scale trial in February, the account provides access to a small but growing suite of premium upgrades.
Initially users get access to:
- A Monzo Plus card (in Hot Coral or one of the new colours, Midnight Sky or Lagoon Blue)
- A custom Monzo.me link
- Access to Monzo Plus events and swag
The account provides access to optional additional services, currently travel insurance at £4 per month, and upgraded travel ATM allowance/emergency cash if you lose your card at £3 per month.
Initially the cost of Monzo Plus will be £3 per month, rising to £6 per month later this year.
