  1. Register for online or mobile services (text alerts) to bank on-the-go. This way you will have account access in the palm of your hand.
  1. Pay with your international scheme cardinstead of carrying large amounts of cash. You can enjoy purchase protection and travel insurance, as well as carry out any cancellations instantaneously should you ever misplace your card, unlike cash!
  1. Check your transactions frequently! This way you can keep a tab on all your expenses to ensure accuracy.
  1. Keep your banks’ 24/7 hotline numbers saved or memorized in case of an emergency.
