The finance site for young people.
Welcome to hounslowyouth.org.uk - the finance site for young people.
Many finance sites are aimed at people who have a lot of money to invest, but what about when you are starting out?
Anyone who has been a student knows what a nightmare it is juggling money, and once you have graduated it doesn't get any easier. Here are some finance options to consider: Prepaid Cards, Student Credit Cards, Credit Cards, Poor Rating Credit Cards and even Credit Card Claims Services.
Navigate your way around the site and see what financial options are suitable for you.
See below a range of prepaid cards. Here, you can compare the main features to a card so that you can choose which one suits you and your lifestyle. Look at maximum allowed balance, fees (is this a “pay as you go” card or a “monthly” card?), where to load the card and more.
Comparing the main features will allow you to make an informed choice. Remember: to apply for a prepaid card you will not need to worry about your credit score, because no credit checks will be carried out. You cannot borrow money with a prepaid card — what you load is what you get!
