Have You Lost a Credit Card? Don't Panic!

Speaking of how to protect yourself and your credit while traveling, here are some specific suggestions about what to do if you have lost a credit card or if it is been stolen.
  • First, call the credit card issuer. Most companies require that you inform them within 24 hours after the card has been lost.
  • Follow up with something in writing, giving the details of time and place where you believe you have lost the credit card and the details of the phone call you made advising the company.
You'll find that most credit card issuers now include some type of fraud protection, and while there’s usually a $50 liability for any purchases made, most card issuers rarely apply that fee.
