Even your credit cards require a little travel preparation, especially if you are going overseas. Select which cards to take in advance. Couples should carry cards from different accounts in case of a problem with one account. Then you can:
*Call the number on the back of your card to alert the issuer of your travel plans. A high volume of charges or overseas activity may trigger deactivation.
*Ask for a phone number you can call from overseas if your card doesn’t list one. The 800 number on the back of your card might not work outside the U.S.
*Log in to your ProtectMyID Protection Center to enter you debit and medical card information into the Lost Wallet feature. Your credit cards are already protected. If your cards are stolen, call for 24-hour Lost Wallet support at: 1-866-227-3718 (U.S. only) or 479-573-7316 (international).
After your trip, closely monitor your credit card statements for any signs of unauthorized charges.
