You can set a Discover card travel notice by logging into your account or calling Discover customer service at 1-800-347-2683. A travel notice ensures that when Discover sees purchases made in unusual locations using your credit or debit card, they won’t get suspicious and suspend your account for fraud. It’s not something you have to do by any means, but Discover recommends it when traveling out of state or country to help make your trip as smooth as possible.
Here’s how to set a Discover card travel notice:
Log in to your Discover account.
Click on the “Manage” tab.
Click on “Travel Notification.”
Enter the dates you’ll be away and where you’ll be traveling.
Submit your notification.
You can also complete your Discover card travel notice by calling Discover customer service at 1-800-347-2683. From there, you’ll have to enter your account number to speak with a representative. Then you can tell them where you plan to travel and for how long, and the representative will set up the alert for you.
