Debit Card Travel Tips

Debit Card Usage for Travel

  • Should you decide to use your MagicCheck debit card for travel within the United States, please notify TheBANK’s Customer Service Center at (618) 656-0098 so we may note your card for travel. This will ensure that you may use your debit card without interruption.
  • When planning for foreign travel, a credit card can be the best and safest way to pay for travel costs. However, should you decide to use your debit card outside of the United States, please remember the following:
    • Notify TheBANK in advance. Make sure to tell us when and where you’ll be traveling overseas. That way, if we see activity on your account from another country, we’ll know why. One of the ways that we can monitor for fraud is by detecting transactions that differ from your usual spending pattern. You can notify us in advance of your overseas travel at (618) 656-0098.
    • TheBANK has restricted debit card transactions in some non-U.S. countries where fraud is prevalent.
    • Certain transaction fees may apply – please refer to the Schedule of Fees for more information.
