Martinez: Keeping Finances Safe During Summer Travel

President, Los Alamos Region
Enterprise Bank & Trust, Member FDIC

Pandemic restrictions are lifting around the nation, and many of you may be planning visits to see loved ones after months apart or preparing for a long-awaited vacation. Enterprise Bank & Trust offers many services that can help protect your finances while traveling this summer.

The Mobile Wallet app is an easy way to increase your account security. This tool replaces your debit or credit card information with a virtual token so it is never exposed. Simply download the app, enter in the card information and activate the card. The user can then hold their device up to the contactless symbol for in-store purchases at qualifying locations.

Another security protection is the ability to control how, when and where a debit card is used. SecurLOCK Equip™ gives card holders full control to temporarily disable a card, restrict card usage to certain geographic areas, block transactions occurring outside an area and receive alerts for card transactions.

If you’re planning to travel internationally, Enterprise has several resources to assist you as you make your way abroad. International wire payments allow clients to send and receive global payments in USD or foreign currency.

Clients can also order foreign currency at any of our branch locations before leaving, and we’ll buy back unused currency upon your return.

As a friendly reminder to our clients, please alert your branch of your travel plans, knowing your location helps us track fraudulent activity that may threaten your accounts. No matter where you decide to travel, I hope you will consider the many solutions Enterprise has available to keep your finances safe this summer.
