Marking the fourth product launch in ten months, Tandem Journey Card is now available to the public.
The new credit card allows customers to spend freely abroad while building up a healthy and steady credit score.
Tandem Bank has had an extremely busy year. Furthermore, the challenger obtained its banking licence in January 2018 and very quickly launched its Cashback Credit Card.
It continued to push out new and innovative products including, its three market-leading Fixed Saver accounts an app that aggregates bank accounts to give users full visibility and insight into their finances.
Ricky Knox, CEO of Tandem, commented: “The team at Tandem have been working tirelessly to deliver a multitude of credit, savings and tech products to our customers. With the Journey Card people can continue their spending abroad while benefiting from zero fees.
“The integration of credit products into our app is a game-changer for the industry. Our competitors have launched some great pre-loaded and debit cards, but we will own credit in this space.”
