Curve launches premium metal card in Europe

The banking platform that consolidates multiple cards and accounts into one smart card and even smarter app, Curve, has announced that its premium Curve Metal card and great benefits are now available to its customers in the European Economic Area (EEA).

According to the company, Curve Metal has been one of the most requested features by the banking platform’s European customers since it was first released to UK customers in January 2019 and its immediate availability will be exciting news to its thousands of customers across the continent.

In addition to a premium 18g metal contactless card, available in three different colours, Curve customers can now benefit from unlimited cashback with double the retailers of its other tiers, increased spend limits, as well as free debit fronted credit transactions.

Other benefits that accompany Curve’s luxury tier include worldwide travel insurance, discounted lounge access with LoungeKey, fantastic foreign exchange rates, phone insurance and much more all for just €14.99 a month or €150 a year.

“Curve Metal is the only card of its kind on the market and Curve’s customers have been desperate to get their hands on one of our beautifully crafted cards and benefit from its premium features for quite some time now,” said Nathalie Oestmann, COO at Curve.

“The immediate availability of our premium tier in the EEA is a clear commitment to our growth throughout Europe and is yet another important step to realise our vision of a connected, simplified and unified financial world.” 

Curve is the smart and simple way for people to manage their finance and enjoy a better and more modern banking experience across their accounts. By enabling people to interconnect their banks to one card and app, Curve provides its customers with greater financial convenience, control and peace of mind. 

The company recently announced that it has become a principal member of Mastercard and is also one of the first companies in Europe to provision numberless cards to its crowdfund investors. Earlier this year, Curve also announced the appointment of Hannah Nixon, the former. CEO of the Payment Systems regulator.
