First up, apologies for the delay in public launch of the new Niyo Global Card.
We assure you that we are working hard to resolve all bugs and requirements identified to bring an amazing finished product to you. We promise it would worth the wait and you would be able to get a fantastic product for your international travels very soon.
We have been getting a lot of requests to fast-track the same as you plan your travels abroad and we are trying our level best to do that.
Meanwhile, we have gone ahead and upgraded our NiyoX product to have a ZERO Forex Debit Card as part of the offering to new and existing customers. This means that the exchange rate on using NiyoX card and Niyo Global card is now the same - which is ZERO :)).
I have travelled abroad extensively in August-21 with the new Niyo Global Card (beta version) and had NiyoX card as a backup. Glad to report that while both cards worked like a charm, it also gave a lot of peace of mind having 2 equally powerful products in your wallet specially for a long trip abroad.
So here is my recommendation for all of you planning to travel abroad soon - go for the new Niyo Global Card which is in beta and is our best suited product for travel but also take NiyoX as a backup which may lack some in-app travel features but would give you the same value proposition in terms of - Zero Forex Charge besides being an insurance in case you end up losing one of the cards to theft etc.
We are trying our best here everyday to make your banking convenient and less costlier. We thank you for continued support and patronage.
