Open a Revolut <18 account

What is Revolut <18?

Revolut <18 accounts are for children aged 6-17, linked to their parent or legal guardian account. They hold one currency, matching the parent's base currency.

Revolut <18 has its own app for your child to use and manage their money, however they don't need the app to use a card. You can simply provide them with their <18 card for spending.

Revolut <18 T&Cs apply.

Can my child open an <18 account on their own?

For children older than 13, they can start the sign-up process themselves in the Revolut <18 app. They'll still need your approval to activate their account and order a card.

If you don’t approve your child’s request for 60 days, the request and account will be deleted.
