Mastercard Travel Tips

Enjoy peace of mind while traveling.

Mastercard provides travel assistance services and other card service features you need to make you feel secure. 

For your protection, your DFCU Mastercard debit and credit cards are protected by enhanced chip technology, keeping you protected even when traveling. 

With the new enhanced technology, we're alerted if your card is being used outside of your usual location, or if there is spending that doesn't quite match up with your usual activity. Because of these alerts, your card(s) could be declined or suspended until we can verify the transactions. To avoid any suspension or declines while using your card when traveling, there are a few things you should do: 

If you're traveling in the United States, call us directly at 800.336.2700. Also keep in mind: 
  • Verify your correct phone/cell contact number with us so, if needed, we may quickly connect with you for security alerts, or any transactions that may seem suspicious.
  • Download the DFCU mobile app and check your balances often. Reviewing your transaction history will ensure your transactions aren't suspicious or fraudulent.
  • Record the last four digits of your card number and have it ready when talking to our service reps.
  • Travel assistance benefits from Mastercard are available when you're traveling 50 miles or more from home.*

While the DFCU Financial Board of Directors intends to pay Cash Back every year, and has done so since 2007, Cash Back is not guaranteed and will depend on our financial performance and other factors. Annual Cash Back payments are limited to an aggregate of $25,000 for each tax-reported owner. The IRS requires that Cash Back for an IRA be paid to the same IRA account, and that it be open when Cash Back is deposited. Cash Back to Business Banking members is subject to additional terms. Anyone who causes DFCU Financial a loss for any reason is not eligible for Cash Back.
