You don’t need to tell Wells Fargo about travel plans, but it’s definitely a good idea and what Wells Fargo recommends. Credit card companies may decline charges that come from another state or country, assuming the charges are fraudulent. But by notifying Wells Fargo of where you’ll be traveling and on what dates, you’ll prevent your card from being declined during your trip.
To submit a Wells Fargo travel notice, go to the “Manage Your Travel Plans” page on Wells Fargo’s website and log in to your account. From there, simply enter the locations and dates of your trip(s). If you’re traveling to more than one destination, be sure to note all locations and dates. It’s also a good idea to let Wells Fargo know which credit cards you’ll be taking with you on the trip, if you have more than one you’ll be bringing. You can set as many Wells Fargo travel notifications as you want.
If you’re planning a trip, it may be a good time to look into a new travel card. The Wells Fargo Propel American Express card gives 3 points/dollar spent on categories like flights, gas, dining and more, plus one point/dollar on all other purchases. Currently, you can also earn a signup bonus of 20,000 points for spending $1,000 in the first three months. You can redeem those points for cash back or statement credits to help fund your next vacation.
