A few FAQs

What’s wrong with good old cash?

- +

Nothing, except you don’t always have it on you when your kids want their pocket money, and it’s also easy to lose - and easily stolen. By using gohenry, you can help your kids operate in our increasingly digital economy, but - really - we’d always recommend a combo of the two.

What if one of my kids loses their card?

- +

No problem - you can block it instantly, and even order a new one for free. All they'll have lost is the card - unlike losing a wallet full of cash!

Aren’t my kids too young for a debit card?

- +

Research suggests that kids start to develop real money habits by the time they're seven, so the younger the better. Yes, it may well give your kids a sense of independence, confidence, and general grown-up-ness, but that's all for the better. And it's a prepaid card where you set the rules, so there's very little damage they can do.

Money on a card won’t feel real to my kids

- +

Actually, it’s quite the opposite. They may blow the bank once or twice at the start, but giving kids their own money to manage (rather than always asking you for handouts) gives them a sense of ownership - and you might be surprised how sensible they can be. In 2019 alone, gohenry kids squirreled away £2.3m towards their savings goals!

Can my kids use their cards overseas?

- +

Yes, they can make free payments when abroad. It's free to withdraw money too, however some ATMs may also add their own charges. Tip: pay in for foreign currency to get the best exchange rate.
