BON VOYAGE!

We want your trip to be as smooth and relaxing as possible. We also want you to protect you from fraud year round. Card Member Security monitors card activity 24/7 and can block your card if they find suspicious activity until they confirm the transaction with you.

Make sure that your purchases are not flagged as possible fraud by notifying us of your travel plans at 301-881-5626. A quick phone call can help keep your trip stress free. We will need:

  • Last 4 digits of the FedFinancial card(s) you will be using, and whether it is an debit card or a credit card
  • Your destination
  • Travel Dates
  • Phone numbers & an email address where we can reach you in case of emergency.

You may also give us the name and contact information for a person who may be able to help reach you, although we won’t be able to discuss transactions with them.

Take these numbers with you:

If your card is not working, you can check to see if it is blocked at any time:

Credit Cards:

Blocked Countries

Some countries, including most of Europe, have a high level of card fraud. In these countries our debit cards will only work as PIN-based transactions (ATM and debit, but not credit). Our representatives will be able to tell you if the country you’re visiting is currently blocked. Our credit cards work in most countries with very few exceptions. We recommend calling the credit card department if you plan on using your card overseas.

Prepaid Travel Card

If your ATM card is your lifeline at home, you may want to consider leaving it and taking one of our reloadable Prepaid Travel Cards instead. You can purchase a card at either of our branches for $6.95.
