Don't Forget: Let Your Banks and Credit Cards Know Your Travel Dates
It’s ironic to think that travel can be stressful. But the truth is, there’s a lot to take care of before leaving town. You may have to hire baby sitters, pet sitters, a house sitter, program your utilities for vacancy, request vacation time, purchase an international phone plan, figure out transportation to and from the airport, and the list goes on! But most importantly, you need to make a plan for credit and debit purchases when you get to your destination. You can prepare for this months in advance, hence, today’s travel tip. Let your banks and credit cards know when and where you’re going to be traveling once you book your airfare.
Gather the Details
First, decide on where your traveling and when. Then, have your travel agent book the airfare. After your tickets are purchased, decide on what cards you’re going to take. Side Note: of course, when traveling internationally it’s usually best to take foreign currency, but there are many credit cards such as, the Capitol One and United Visa cards, that DO NOT charge international transaction fees or interest on top of non-domestic purchases. We recommend taking 2-3 cards with you, even if they do accrue additional charges. After you know what cards you’re going to take, call them and let them know your where and when. You can even do this online. However, and you can label us old-fashioned, we recommend calling and speaking with someone over the phone. And that’s that. Issue handled. And you can do this months in advance with one less thing you have worry about before traveling!
Thanks for Reading and Happy Travels!
