Tips for Using Your Credit Card Abroad
Your credit card can be as valuable of an asset abroad as it is at home, but the way you go about using it may slightly differ. You will be far away from your credit union in O’Fallon and the last thing you want to deal with is a credit card that continually gets declined.
Always keep your passport on you when you use your credit card abroad so that you can prove your identity. You should also be familiar with currency exchange rates and make sure you are charged according to the local currency to prevent stores from overcharging you. You may also need to contact your credit union to remove any hold resulting from “suspicious” activity.
