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!
