Dutch children near bottom of pocket money ranking


Dutch children get much less pocket money on average than their peers in other European countries, according to research by financial services group ING.

The bank says Dutch 10 to 15-year-olds get an average of €5 a week, but the European average is €9.50. The gap stretches for the over 15s. Older Dutch teenagers get an average of €12.50 a week while the European average is €20, ING says.

Only children in the Czech Republic get less pocket money than the Dutch, the ING research shows.
