    From the Caxton Fx website, so nearly right...

    "You must be over 18, a permanent resident in the UK, and have a UK debit card.
    You may apply for secondary cards for family members or friends as long as they are 13 or older.

    Have a look at CaxtonFX, FairFX and similar pre-paid cards. I'm unsure about their age limits but I would expect that something can be done with an adult co-signing an application. The charges could work out less than Nationwide.

    Under 18 travel money

    Hi,

    I am going around Europe (but outside the Eurozone for some parts) in the summer for a month and I am having some trouble finding a card that I can use that doesn't have a seemingly endless amount of extra charges on it. The problem emerges because I am 16 so I am pretty limited as to what accounts banks will offer me. I was going to use Nationwide's Flex Account, but they have decided to change the account so that it won't work abroad. I intend to take a combination of travellers cheques, cash and a card if this is possible.

    So, my question is what is the cheapest card for me to use abroad at my age?

    Thanks,

    Sam
