How we value Monzo Premium

Read the article

The average total value of our worldwide travel and mobile insurance is £256 a year. Monzo Premium costs £180 a year total (£15 a month). With just your travel and mobile insurance, you'll save £76 a year with Monzo Premium.

Recently, we launched Monzo Premium – our new account with our new metal card. It comes with everything you already love about Monzo, and much more.

You also get extensive phone insurance, worldwide travel insurance for you and your partner or family, and discounted access to airport lounges. As well as 1.50%/1.49% AER/Gross (variable) interest on up to £2,000 in your balance and regular Pots, and much, much more.

We want to make sure we're providing real value for our customers so we asked independent market research group Consumer Intelligence to see what it would cost if you bought comparable insurance policies and lounge access separately. We've included a summary of that data in this blog post, and have attached a report from Consumer Intelligence with a breakdown of the methodology and data if you'd like to see it.
