Traveling With Your Debit Card

Going out of town? 

Here are some best practices for traveling with your debit card out of state and around the world!

  • Set-up a Travel Alert: Before you leave town contact Bangor Support to set-up a travel alert for your Bangor Savings Bank Debit Mastercard® to help minimize the risk of your card being blocked or flagged for fraudulent activity. 
  • Save ATM Receipts: As a reminder, for certain international ATM withdrawals, due to technical limitations, we will automatically reimburse $3.00 of an ATM fee charged within three (3) business days. In those instances where the fee exceeds $3.00, please save your ATM receipt and bring to any Bangor Savings Bank branch for the remaining reimbursement. 
  • Use Your Pin: Whenever possible use your PIN for your debit card transactions. Your PIN helps ensure the validity of the charge. 
  • Contact Us: Please contact Bangor Support if you experience any card declines, or have other questions or concerns about your card while traveling. 
  • International Calls1: To contact Bangor Support while outside of the United States follow the steps below:
  1. Dial the International Direct Dialing (IDD) number of the country you are in - International Direct Dialing (IDD) number resource
  2. Dial 1 to dial into the US
  3. Dial 207.990.6417
  4. You will now be connected to a Bangor Support representative!
