Default Paying with Solo

Hi,

I'm in the very early stages of planning what I want to do, where to go etc. I was disappointed to find out that Solo isn't accepted on this website's hostel booking system. Does anyone know of any other reliable hostel booking website that does accept the Solo debit card?

Thanks.

Debit cards are very hit and miss. They can be country specific, my Irish debit card won't work in the UK or anywhere else in the world. I can take money out of the ATMs but that's it outside Ireland. They're also not great for online, despite my card having the laser, solo and maestro logo on it, it won't work on any website unless that website has an Irish banking provider.

www.hostelworld.com has all the symbols but it's an Irish company, I know it accepts Irish laser, I'd assume they'd accept most other countries as they're geared towards international sales.
