Do I need to set up travel alerts for when I travel?

Yes. Please contact us at least a week before traveling abroad so that we can ensure your Betterment visa debit card is ready to be used in the countries you will be visiting. Card usage in certain countries may be blocked. In certain countries, card usage and login access to Betterment’s application and/or website may be blocked.

As always, please note that if unusual activity is detected on your card, you may be requested to confirm the flagged transactions. Keep in mind that you can always place a temporary lock on your debit card if you need to. If you suspect fraud on your account, lock your card and contact us during business hours for further assistance.
