Keep your finances safe while traveling | Credit Union | MA 07/18/2017

Before leaving:

  • Make a photocopy or scan the information on your cards. It could take a long time to find contact information for your accounts if you lose your wallet. Keep copies (in a secure place) of the fronts and backs of cards so that you can cancel your accounts quickly when needed.

When accessing your accounts or paying bills online:

  • Use a secure network with up-to-date antivirus software and a firewall.
  • Don’t access your personal information from a public computer.
  • Fully log out of your account when finished.

When using an ATM:

  • Convert your personal identification numbers (PINs) to four numeric digits (not your birth date)—the standard for ATMs in most foreign countries.
  • Be aware of your surroundings when entering your PIN and receiving cash.
  • Make effort to use ATMs that are indoors, such as inside a financial institution.
