Hi, just wondering if i need to give Bankwest an heads up for my upcoming overseas holiday so i won't expect they lock up my credit card. I heared from some friends that some banks do that. 

 

Cheers.

Hi @whctcouch,

 

You can check out @LyndsCpost which provides a few travel tips Smiley Happy

 

It's best if you notify us of your travel plans prior to departing Australia via the Bankwest App or an Overseas Travel Notification Form on our website. This way we can keep a watch over your accounts for any suspicious activity for you and avoid any unnecessary holds on your card.

 

Hope that helps Smiley Happy
