If going overseas, need to inform bank abt credit card?

If going overseas, do we need to inform our bank about the trip for credit card usage? Will it trigger some form of "fraud detection" when swiping credit card overseas?

Credit card is master/visa/amex ma. Transactions made from these are accepted world-wide, no need inform.

4. Tell your bank before your travel

Most banks will view transactions unexpectedly made on the other side of the world as being suspicious and block them as an anti-fraud measure.

However, in most cases you can avoid having your transactions declined by your credit card provider by informing them of your travel plans before you board the plane.

Most credit cards have a customer service number printed on the back that you can call to inform your credit card company of your travel plans, or to ask them to unblock your card if you are already on holiday.

Ish need to inform.

In case during your trip you overdraft and need credit extension on ur CC, the verification and approval process will be shorter.
