Features & Benefits
What you get with a 2nd Level Current Account
If you are under 14, you will receive an ATM card will allow you get cash at over 2,000 cash machines around Ireland. Most Bank of Ireland ATM’s will allow you to top up your mobile phone, check your balance and order statements to see how much money you have in your account. We’ll also pay the annual Government Stamp Duty on your Bank of Ireland ATM card (€2.50 per year) or your Bank of Ireland Debit card (up to €5 per year).
If you are 14 or over, you will receive a Visa Debit Card which will allow you to shop and pay for your purchases directly from your 2nd level student current account. It also saves you carrying cash around, so it’s perfect for school trips abroad. A Visa Debit card is a quick, easy and better way to pay.
You can use your Visa Debit card at home and abroad to withdraw cash from ATMs and pay for goods and services. However, there may be charges for using your Visa Debit card abroad, so please check our Schedule of Fees & Charges brochure.
No call credit? No problem. Register at any Bank of Ireland ATM that displays the Meteor, Three or Vodafone logos. You can then top up your call credit by sending a free text. The money is taken directly out of your account. You can also top up using the free text number at anytime, anywhere in the world where your mobile operator has roaming. See more information here.
