The Laser card is on the way out – BOI and AIB are eventually replacing it with Visa Debit cards – which can be used to shop online everywhere (99%).
Laser cards are accepted in very few online shopping sites – most of the major UK ones don’t accept Laser cards. We have a list below of some sites that do take laser cards.
One option for online shopping for people who only have a Laser card – is to apply for a Prepaid Mastercard from Moneybookers. It only costs €10 a year and you can load it up online with no fees using your laser card. You can then use it to shop online anywhere that Mastercard is accepted. (You can also use it on Ryanair to avoid paying the €12 booking fee per person)
