If you are traveling this summer, let us know of any Capitol Credit Union ATM or debit cards you will be using while you’re out of town. If we see transactions that are out of your normal usage patterns, and we are unaware of your travel plans, we may block your card to prevent further suspicious transactions. Make sure your contact information is up to date in case we do need to contact you regarding your accounts while you are traveling.
If you are traveling out of the country make note of the countries we currently block signature based transactions from, due to a high rate of fraud stemming from those countries.
We recommend you travel with several types of payment options, such as a debit card, credit card, and cash, in case one option doesn’t work at a particular place or merchant.
If you are planning on renting a car during your travels and would like to use your debit card as a payment method, please contact us prior to making payment arrangements with the agency as Capitol Credit Union blocks debit card transactions from car rental agencies as a result of certain car rental agencies’ policies and procedures.
If you don’t already have a debit card with your CCU checking account, contact us and we will be happy to order one for you.
If you are interested in a Capitol Credit Union credit card, you can apply online.
Capitol Credit Union also offers a MasterCard® Travel Card, a prepaid card that can be reloaded up to 23 times and used almost anywhere MasterCard is accepted. For more information on the MasterCard Travel Card, contact us.
