Before you go

If you’re intent on travelling with just one form of payment, such as a Visa Credit Card, there are some checks you should make before you arrive at the airport.

  1. Let Greater Bank know of your travel plans. This way, we’re aware that it’s you buying a round of drinks in Thailand, not suspect activity to be concerned about.
  2. If you haven’t in a while, update your contact details with us. This will ensure we can communicate with you easily if you experience issues with your credit card.
  3. Know your PIN. Signatures are accepted in less and less places abroad, and not everywhere will offer Visa payWave yet. Contact us about your PIN if you need a gentle reminder. ;-)
  4. Make sure your card expiry date isn’t set to pass while you’ll be away.
