What's FlexOne?

How FlexOne works

Choosing your card

Which card suits you best?

Our FlexOne current account for teenagers and young people lets you choose from either a cash card or a Visa debit card.

You can change the type of card you have at any point up until you’re 17 and a half. To do this, pop into a branch, call us, or do it online through our Internet Bank. It’ll take up to 10 working days for your new card to arrive.

Once you’re 18, we’ll automatically switch you to a Visa debit card if you don’t already have one.
