Wondering why? Finch makes group travel easier

This year, our customers have taken Finch on all sorts of adventures from surfing in Byron, skiing the New Zealand slopes, sipping Pina Coladas in Hawaii and watching France score at the World Cup! Whether it’s splitting a feast, Airbnb or petrol for the road, Finch takes care of the awkward money moments so you can enjoy a hassle free holiday.


Planning a trip?

Here are some handy tips from fellow Finchers so you can say bye (Felicia 👋) to drama and keep the good times rolling. 🚗✈️



Tip 1: Create your group ahead of time

Ditch the excel spreadsheet! Create your Finch group ahead of time and get everyone to add their expenses as they go. This means you can keep track of who’s paid (and who owes) what for things like:

  • accommodation
  • flights
  • car hire
  • game tickets etc.

before you even leave. This also keeps you honest and committed to your budget, or at least aware of how much you’re spending so there’s no nasty surprises when you get home. 🙈


Tip 2: Split bills any way you like

Let’s be honest: who wants to be doing math on holiday? Split bills with the tap of a button and adjust everyone’s amount (down to the dollar) so no one’s covering for ol’ mates 10 cocktails. 🙄



If you’re heading overseas you can also use groups as your pseudo foreign exchange calculator so you know exactly how much that stein in Germany is costing you in Aussie Dollars. 🍺 Simply tap the dollar sign, select the foreign currency you want, enter the amount and when you get to the description you’ll see the live foreign exchange rate! (You don’t actually have to add it to the group, just use it as a calculator – we won’t tell anyone!)


Tip 3: No wifi, no worries

What’s travel without the internet? It’s probably looking for decent wifi so you can Google Map directions to your next spot. Whether you’ve snagged an international sim or happy to camp out at Maccas for the free gigs, you’ll be happy to know that your trusty Finch app doesn’t actually need the internet. Just add your $$ on the go and we’ll update your mates the next time you’re online! 🏄‍

Now… about that road trip. Enter here!
