This Is Why You Need to Set up a Travel Notification

We are in the midst of summer, and you know what that means: it's vacation season! But before you start packing, don’t forget to let Viriva know about your travel plans. It’s a simple proactive step you can take to help ensure your time away won’t hit any bumps in the road.

Why? Well, if you are vacationing in a new place and a transaction is made on your Viriva Mastercard® Debit Card or Credit Card, it may be flagged as fraud. If this happens, your transaction may be declined. You will have to contact our call center to let us know you authorized the transaction and then try to make the purchase again. This may feel like a pain in the neck, especially if it interrupts your time away, but this process ensures your funds stay safe and secure. On the other hand, you can avoid this situation altogether by informing us about your traveling plans.

To notify us about your travel plans, simply give us a call and let us know the following information.

  • The specific dates you’ll be away
  • The names of specific cardholders and the last 4 digits of the cards
  • A list of all domestic or international travel destinations (including the country name, states, and cities)

Once your account has been noted, you’ll be able to enjoy more and worry less. Contact us today
