I hope you aren't using an ATM card. When I first started traveling years ago I was going to just access my bank account. I sat down and visited with the President of the bank and he advised against it. If your card is compromised you could have problems with the money in the bank (lose it). We carried as much as the FDIC would insure in our accounts and we didn't want that to happen. He advised using a credit card to minimize possible problems and that's what we do to this day.

Roger! I was referring to Credit card! As far as ATM card for ready cash when needed...that accesses a completely separate account with limited fund balance.

Sure it happens. We just crossed the boarder from Arizona in California and when stopping for Diesel I received a text asking if I was at ______ filling station? I replied YES and they responded "Thank You."

Well first the business didnít refuse your card, their Credit Card processing company refused your card, and could be for many reasons.
If they were using a dialup card reader, the connection could have failed or timed out.

The bank could have received garbled information.

I could go on and on, basically we make sure we carry several cards with different issuing banks just to advoid this.

Hodgy, I had the same problem when trying to use my Credit card at a US gas pump and not having a ZIP code. Station attendent said to use this number for the zip code -- 10400 -- and it worked.

Like others have said. Most banks will now require you to call and tell them what areas and the dates of your travel. After that, you should have no problems.

After getting hacked twice. I don't mind them blocking my card.
BUT the last long trip to the midwest I called the 800 number and explained who, what and when and everything went well. We just took a cruise and I had to call and tell them I would be out of the country for a week and where I was going. The cruise ship was fine as everything is booked on the cruise line card. but off the ship.
so it's all good.
