Tell Your Bank You’re Traveling
If you’re planning to travel outside the country, tell your bank and credit card company ahead of time so they don’t put a block on your cards when they see “suspicious activity.” This can put a real damper on your trip so make a quick call in advance to avoid this hassle.
Good to know: Credit cards that don’t have foreign transaction fees.
