Let your card issuer know about your trip before you leave so that unfamiliar transactions aren’t flagged as suspicious. Additionally, make sure you know the daily ATM withdrawal limit for your card, as well as the expiration dates, account balance and amount of credit available to you. This ensures that you won’t be caught short with a card that doesn’t work while you’re away, or not have enough credit to cover your trip expenses.
Your financial security abroad is vital. Have no fear, we’ve provided a list of tips for you to stay prepared at every step of your next trip.
