Features & Benefits

What you get with a 2nd Level Current Account

  • 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 we change this at any time in the future, we will tell you beforehand (or publish a notice).

  • If you are aged 16 years old or over you are eligible to apply for a Bank of Ireland Visa Debit card. If you are under 18, we will need your parent or guardian to give us consent and indemnity before we process your application. With a Visa Debit card, you can shop and pay for your purchases directly from your 2nd level student current account, and it also saves you carrying cash around, so it’s perfect for school trips abroad. It’s quick, easy and a 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, O2 or Vodafone logos. You can then top up your call credit by sending a free text.
