Traveling abroad is often a very exciting time. You get to see new places and new things, and it can often be a once in a lifetime experience. That’s why it’s important to make sure your plastic cards have travel alerts put on them prior to taking these trips.
It is important to set travel alerts before an international trip because card issuers will block a card if they think there’s fraudulent activity taking place. If a transaction from a foreign country appears on your card it can be viewed as fraud and the card can be deactivated. This can be avoided by contacting us prior to the trip and placing a travel alert on your cards.
Avoid the hassle of having your charges declined on an international trip. Let us know so we can place a travel alert on your card by calling 800-321-8570 ext. 6400.
