Let us know...

Whether your leaving the state or leaving the country, be sure to contact Beacon with your travel plans. We monitor your accounts regularly for fraud and if we're not aware that you're traveling to a state or country where fraud is common, we could mistake your dinner at that 5 star restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia for an attempt by a criminal to steal your money.

Simply call us at 434.237.1566 or visit a branch before you go and set up a Travel Exception. Before you call or visit, be sure to have the following information available...

  • Date when you're leaving
  • Date when you'll return
  • All locations you'll be traveling to or through

Protecting our members is our number one priority and we want your vacations to be experiences that you will remember forever. Be sure to add us to your travel checklist!

In seeking the best deal on your next car, you might've stumbled upon advertisements or offers to get a 0% interest auto loan. As great as this sounds, you may not save as much as you expect with this type of incentive.

Since auto loans can come through either a dealer or a lender, such as a bank or credit union, it's important to note that a 0% interest loan generally, if not always, is obtained through a dealer. Automakers offer them to attract buyers to certain car models, especially ones that aren't selling well. Here are a few things to consider about 0% financing and why it might not be in your best interest to use it.
