When you're traveling out of the country there is a good chance you'll need foreign currency as soon as your plane touches down. Most international airports have ATM's available, but this isn't always the case. It's a good idea to have some local currency on hand even before you leave home.
MVFCU's eZforex program lets you buy foreign currency BEFORE you go. Simply visit the eZforex website. Select the country you will be visiting and how much foreign currency you would like to purchase. EZforex also gives you the opportunity to lock in your exchange rate in the event you have currency to sell back. Members have the option of selling back foreign currency if they originally ordered from MVFCU's eZforex program.
Don't want to get your cash before you go and don't want to take your debit card. MVFCU offers a Reloadable VISA Card as a safe way to travel. Some benefits of the reload card are:
Makes withdrawals from an ATM
Load what you want (up to $5,000). If you need more you can "reload" the card.
Protects the money in your savings and checking account by allowing you to leave your debit card in the states.
Foreign ATM Withdrawals
When using your VISA or MasterCard card internationally there is a 1% foreign transaction charge from VISA and MasterCard. Other cards may charge you an additional 1% however at MVFCU we believe you should be able to use your card anytime, anywhere. Safe travels!
Using Your Debit/ Credit Card
If you're traveling internationally be sure to let MVFCU know. Without the proper notifications our fraud monitoring system may suspect fraud on your account and attempt to reach you. Call 800-247-0522 to talk to a MVFCU representative today.
