Travel Information

Planning a trip? Packing your debit card?

There are a few things you should know…

Almost 100% of debit card fraud is now taking place in foreign countries.

Lakeland Credit Union provides added protection on your CHIP enabled debit card through our Travel Notification program. Your debit card is automatically blocked from making purchases in certain countries. The Travel Notification works by removing those blocks on foreign countries where you will be travelling.

Simply inform us when and where you will be going and we will ensure you can use your debit card on your travels.

Remember, USA qualifies as a foreign destination.

Insurance

It's easier to relax abroad knowing that you're covered if something goes wrong. There are different insurance packages available that cover everything from lost luggage to health care while in another country. Your Provincial Health Care does not cover all medical expenses, so make sure you're protected.

Traveler's Cheques

The safest and most convenient way to carry money while you travel in a foreign country is to buy traveller's cheques in advance. Traveler's cheques are accepted all over the world and can be replaced quickly if they are lost or stolen.
