Important: You need to inform the credit card companies when and where you are going to be. I just got off the phone with Chase about my credit. You can now update your travel notification via the website by clicking customer service and then the travel notification form link. This lowers the chances of the credit card getting turned off when you use it in a foreign country. Note, I have had credit cards turned off even though I gave them warning to put a note on my account. I love the fact that you can do it online! Doing it online is so much easier than having to call internationally each time. Especially when you are like me and have a loose itinerary. Now I can update as needed as long as I have an internet connection.
