Quick Tips for Traveling

  Keep Your Contact Info Up to Date

Make sure we have your most up-to-date mobile phone number so we can contact you via text or call if fraud is suspected. You may update your contact information on our mobile app, through Online Banking, or by calling our Member Service Center.

✓  Enroll in 2Way Text

SCCU offers 2Way Text Fraud Alerts for your SCCU Visa® debit and credit cards. We’ll notify you in real-time through text message upon detecting possible fraudulent activity on your cards. As a courtesy, all SCCU debit and credit card holders are automatically enrolled in this FREE fraud service, with the choice to opt-out by texting “Stop” when you receive a fraud text alert from us.

  Download Card Valet 

Control and monitor your SCCU debit and credit card usage with the CardValet® app. CardValet, which compliments the SCCU Mobile app, allows you to set up real-time alerts when your card is used, turn your cards on and off at your convenience, and customize controls based on merchant type, and location—which is perfect for traveling!

  Make Copies of Important Documents

Make copies of important credit cards, driver’s licenses, passports, and insurance cards to keep with you but carry them separate from where you are keeping the originals. It is also recommended to keep another set of copies with a trusted person while you are traveling.

✓  Pack More Than One Card

Packing additional cards and carrying them in separate places may be helpful in more than one way. Although your SCCU Visa® debit and credit cards are accepted in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide, having an additional card from a separate credit card issuer betters your chances of always having an accepted credit card for purchases. Packing a second credit card also increases your chances of having a card to use if a portion of your items is lost or stolen.

  Use a Primary Credit Card for All Trip Purchases 

Consider using a primary credit card when you are away from home for an extended period, so you can better track expenses and identify charges that may seem out of the norm.
