Transact, withdraw, access
The Investec Youth Account is a separate transactional account in your child’s name and comes with an internationally accepted Visa debit card embossed with their name. It offers unlimited free card transactions, free cash withdrawals at till points of select retailers and complimentary access to SAA departure lounges in SA. It also offers basic travel insurance when buying international travel tickets using the Visa card.

With no monthly fee, this instant-access savings account is one of the best in the market, offering a premium prime-linked interest rate. There is no minimum balance requirement.
