If you're traveling internationally, please take the following steps:
  • Set travel notifications for your debit and credit card(s) from our Card Defense® app. Within Card Defense®, tap on your card, and select Travel Notifications. If you have multiple cards, you'll have to set the notification for each card individually. You can also contact us at 1-800-926-0003 prior to your departure with the dates and cities you’ll be traveling to so we can notate your cards for travel. We recommend taking more than one form of payment with you when you travel.
  • You'll be asked for a PIN number if you're using your card outside of the U.S., so make sure you have a PIN set up on all cards you'll be taking with you. To set up a PIN for credit cards, call 1-866-576-1342, and for debit cards, call 1-866-985-2273.
