Vacation Tips

  • Only carry necessary items in your wallet 
  • Keep a list at home of credit cards you carry along with account number and customer service number. If you’re a Prime Visions member, the bank will do this for you. Just bring your cards into the bank. 
  • If possible, only carry one or two credit cards 
  • Report lost or stolen credit or check cards IMMEDIATELY 
  • Never let your credit or check card out of your sight when using it for purchases 
  • Use pre-paid debit cards instead of cash, check cards or credit cards. If lost or stolen, thieves will only have access to the money available on the cards, not in your accounts.
  • DO NOT put all your cash or traveler’s checks together in one place 
  • Keep your credit card(s) and debit card in different places 
  • Be aware of people around you 
  • Don’t carry your wallet in your back pocket or a front shirt pocket
    • Safest place is front pants pocket 
    • May want to check into money straps worn under clothing
