    Debit card? Yes, pretty much all banks, Barclays, HSBC, etc.

    Unless you mean CREDIT card. In which case, no.

    You can get a debit card from 16, right?

    and I think you can get a 'cash' card even younger, like 14 or something

    I don't understand what the difference between a 'cash card' and debit card would be for someone under the age of 18. As they wouldn't be able to have an overdraft on their debit account anyway.

    A cash card is one you can get money out of an ATM with but not pay in shops or online like you can with a debit card.

    OP, Lloyds TSB's Under 19s account offers a debit card, as does whatever HSBC's young person's account is (I think it's called "My Account"). Probably others do too but these are the ones I have experience of.

    I had a debit card when I was 16 and could use it in shops and pay for goods online. You have to be 18 to get a credit card though.

    Pretty much everywhere except nationwide.

    How do people get to 17 without knowing stuff like this.
