Notify Us of Your Travel Plans in Online Banking
Log into Online Banking before you log your air miles – we’ve made it easier than ever to set your trip alerts.
All that's left is to notify your financial institutions that yes, you will be traveling and no, that $180 skydiving charge once you're there isn't fraudulent.
Now, thanks to members like you, even that task is one that can be accomplished in mere seconds. We're excited to roll out a digital travel notification feature, courtesy of a member suggestion submitted to our Member Idea Exchange by user @1GoofyIdea (have a great idea? Sign up here!).
Members can elect to call us or use our new digital service by logging into their becu.org account.
- Visit becu.org
- Log on to Online Banking
- Click Account Services found in the upper right-hand corner
- Select Travel Notification
- Follow the prompts
That's it! You can include multiple destinations – don't forget to add airport layovers where you might be tempted to buy a snack. Travel notifications can be set as far as 60 days in advance, and for as long as a 90-day travel period.
If the trip is longer than 90 days, or, if there are multiple account holders traveling at once (e.g., your spouse is on a business trip while the rest of the family heads to Mexico), you'll need to call or send a secure message to notify us of your travel plans.
The best part? You're traveling! Rest assured that you're using a card packed with the global security features backed by BECU, Visa or Mastercard.
