Do you notify your credit card company when you travel?

Jump to last reply

Ok since we have had some interesting discussion regarding credit cards, the one question I have it this:

Do you notify your credit card company when you travel?

I ask this because I am curious if this should be done as a matter of routine when one travels. I have had time when I havent' done this and have received phone calls from my credit card company about changes in the pattern of use on my credit card. It's good that they call and ask and it's good they are checking. Since this has happened to me a couple of times, I now make it a point to call my credit card company prior to traveling, especially when going out of the country and they are likey to see patterns of use that are out of the ordinary.

I also have recently checked the fine print in my credit card agreement because I discovered that in some cases when traveling outside of the US, credit card companies charge you transaction fees which can be up to 3% of all purchases.
