Cardholder Travel Information

Unfortunately debit and credit card fraud happens even when you're enjoying vacation or traveling for business. Together, you and LGFCU can take precautions to minimize or prevent fraud.

Things to do before and during travel

  • Notify the Credit Union of extensive domestic or international travel
  • Find out about potential international fraud blocks before you travel
  • Make sure your PIN is valid
  • Verify your card will not expire while you are away
  • Carry an additional payment method e.g. another debit or credit card
  • Pack your payment methods in different locations
  • Stay alert for pick pockets
  • Photocopy all cards front and back and keep copies on hand
  • Keep the Credit Union's contact number 888.732.8562 with you. (Dial the country code first if overseas.)
