    wow, you want to encourage debt? great role model.

    I got a debit card when i was 16

    Debit card. Barclays. halifax, santander all worth a shout

    Most pre-paid cards are also 13 and over.

    Yeah he can geta debit card, a specialised one for under 16s, tyhat doesnt have an overdraught ect. If hes on 02 can get that cash manager card thingy. Deffinitley cant get a credit cgard tho

    my son is 16 he has got a debit card no way would he have a credit card but i think you got to be 18 anyway for a credit card

    can get a debit card-chip + pin and can use it online

    will need his passport when you go to the bank, took about 15 minutes when i got mine.

    You can't rent at 16 either :x

    Make an appointment with the bank, take passport with you, you will be able to set up a debit card for him, wont let him have an overdraft etc though

    Debit card can be used in shops, online and via cash machine - shouldnt need a credit card

    my daughters still uses cash, as she gets paid cash and doesnt have time to put into bank, so it is better for her, well until she loses it

    I got a debit card at 13 i think and i hardly ever used it. Never used it in a shop or online. No need for a credit card IMO.

    A pre-paid card isnt debt :whistling:

    can get a debit or pre paid card from age of 13 at most banks, can be used online and at most shops
