Alerting USAA about upcoming travel

Whenever traveling, especially out of the country, I try to alert USAA so that they know why my spending habits may be changing. However, I don’t do this often enough to remember how to place an alert. Right now, I am using my iPad, and I have been unable to find out how to set an advisory alert. Can someone help me?

@newdiaplys...Make sure you have a backup CC when you travel. I've rarely been able to rely on them when I traveled with their card overseas. A card from another bank had to be used. Finally got tired and moved on after that. Have a safe trip.

USAA CSR: No need to escalate since I already closed by CC with your bank.

@New displays of info, I understand you will be traveling. You may update your travel details via the app. From My USAA on USAA Mobile app:

  1. Tap on Accounts.
  2. Tap on account for the card to establish Travel Notification. 
  3. Tap My Card.
  4. Select Travel Notice.

I hope this helps. Wishing you safe travels! - Rhonda
