Why You Should Notify Us Before Traveling
There’s one small, but a crucial step that people often forget before traveling out of state: notifying their financial institution.
Notify Your Financial Institution Before Using a Credit or Debit Card When Traveling
When you let your credit union know that you’re going away, they add a note to your account and share it with their fraud detection system. This prevents your “abnormal” spending patterns from triggering a block on your card.
