Planning on traveling near or far this summer? ICBA has released a few tips that might be worth looking into with your community bank. These tips might be able to help you prepare and plan for your finances while on vacation with your loved ones.
Some of the tips include:
- Let your community bank know when and where you will be traveling so that you will avoid any potential denials or fraud alerts when out-of-the-ordinary transactions are presented. This is crucial for international travel.
- Bring a list of emergency phone numbers. Be sure to get a number for your bank that you can call if you’re out of the country.
- Check your available balances before you leave. Know the limits on how much cash you can withdraw or purchases you can make.
