  • Virtual money tracker: for keeping an eye on spending for free. For ages three to 17.
  • Rooster PLUS: for kids aged five to 17, 99p per month.
  • Rooster Card: a pre-paid debit card for kids aged six to 17. Free for 12 months if a parent is a Royal Bank of Scotland current account holder. It’s usually £1.99 a month or £19.99 per year. Eligbility criteria apply.
