Last Updated: July 24, 2017

If you are planning a trip in the near future, whether it be domestic or abroad, an important part of your vacation planning process should include consideration of how you will handle money and expenditures on your trip. In most cases, a credit card is the best bet when you travel, especially in a foreign country. But there are certain precautions that you should take when traveling with plastic.

When you travel abroad, the odds are in your favor that you will have a safe and incident-free trip. Travelers are, however, sometimes victimized by crime and violence, or experience unexpected difficulties. No one is better able to tell you this than the U.S. consular officers who work in more than 250 U.S. embassies and consulates around the globe. Every day U.S. embassies and consulates receive calls from American citizens in distress.
