Did you forget?

A list of the 7 Worst Things to Forget. Most are obvious. #7 is my favorite (for others, of course - lol).

Of note; Title of article said 7 items, copy and paste title shows 6 items. Hmmm.

How did dinner reservations make that list? Not everyone cares about eating in the shipboard venues that require reservations. Surprised

I was wondering about the credit card reminder.  I've never called my credit card company before any trip I've had, land or sea, state side or international.

 

Does anyone here call their C/C company before their trips?  Anyone ever had a problem and wish they had called their C/C company before a trip?

I always call my bank which also issued my credit card.  They want travelers to call to prevent having their card denied for suspected fraudulent use.

My brother was travelling in Italy in April.  I happened to be at Mom's when the bank called and asked for him.  I told them he was travelling abroad.  That's what they had called to confirm.  They had blocked his CC overnight due to foreign transactions.  Good thing they still live in a small town and use the hometown bank.  They let me confirm his location, but a national bank would have required that he notify them.  He had no clue there was ever a problem till we told him.

The URL says 6 and the post is 7 because we decided at the last minute to add a seventh item, but the article was already created and saved in our system and once it is, the URL can't be changed. Nice catch, though. Other than that I hope you guys liked it.

We always call our bank/credit card company before leaving on vacations. A coworker of mine had her cc frozen while they were away because she had not notified them.

Just before our last cruise our cc company contacted us and told us that they were aware we would be traveling and there was no need to remind them.  The reason they were aware, according to the memo, was because we had purchased all the travel through them. They are very good at monitoring the account and notifying us when there is an unusual charge. Big Smile

Thanks for the info about the credit cards.  I'll be keeping that in mind from now on.
