Your child can use their GoHenry debit card abroad fee-free. This is because GoHenry doesn’t charge commission or ATM withdrawal fees (though some ATMs charge their own fee). Just make sure your child knows to pay in local currency, as they could pay up to 7% more in fees if they pay in GBP abroad.
Your child can use their GoHenry card to withdraw money at an ATM up to three times a day. There is a pre-set daily withdrawal limit of £120, but you can choose to set a lower limit in your parent app.

Your child can make contactless payments using their GoHenry card for purchases of £100 or less in most shops. They just have to use Chip & PIN for their first transaction. If your child is aged 13+ they can also add their GoHenry card to Apple Pay via their Apple Pay wallet on their phone or their GoHenry app.
