                                           Summer Travel and Vacation Information
When traveling we recommend that you never depend on just one form of payment. Take a combination of your
Debit Card, Credit Card and Cash. Remember that Debit Cards have daily limits and holds may be placed on funds
for pending purchases. Plan ahead to make sure your checking account is funded properly so you don’t find yourself
in an embarrassing situation.

Call and tell us your travel plans and we will work with you to alert our card processors of your travel destinations.
Remember, due to the high incidence of fraud, our Debit Card and Credit Card Fraud Departments will view any out
of the ordinary or inconsistent spending as possible fraud and may try to contact you to verify your purchases. If they
can’t confirm it’s you, they may put a hold on your card until we can contact you. This is not to spoil your vacation
but to protect your finances. Please make sure we have your current contact information on file.

Travel Tip:
Photo copy the front and back of all of your ID, Passport, Debit Card and Credit Card(s) that you are taking with you
and keep them separate from the originals. This will provide you with immediate access to your account information
if needed.
