Travel Tips

  • Have Options: Take multiple methods to access your funds. If you lose a card, or it gets blocked, don’t let it be the only source of funds!
    • Debit Card
    • Visa Credit Card
    • MasterCard Cash Passport
    • Cash / Foreign Currency
  • File a Notice of Travel in advance so we can prevent your card from getting flagged for suspected fraud.
  • Be aware of different fraud techniques travelers face:
    • Skimming devices can be attached to card terminals and retrieve all your card information with one swipe
    • Using unsecure computers and networks can expose your data.
  • Keep important phone numbers in an accessible place separate from your cards. If you need to call about your card, know where to get the phone number.

  • Many car rental companies do not accept debit cards.
