Important Traveling Tips for Debit Card Holders

Unfortunately, fraudulent debit card activity is on the increase throughout the United States and internationally. Mechanics has put practices in place to protect you. These practices are designed to identify certain geographic areas and types of merchants that are of high risk for fraudulent transactions and block transactions at those locations - which may include common uses such as gasoline and convenience store purchases. As a result, if you are traveling outside of Ohio and visit any of these high-risk locations, your debit card transactions may be blocked to prevent this type of fraud from occurring. Please contact our Answer Center at 419-524-0831, before traveling out of state, to help avoid blocked debit card transactions. Thank you.

If you're traveling outside of Ohio, here are a few items to keep in mind:

  • It's always best to carry more than one method of payment (e.g., debit card, prepaid gift cards, traveler's checks, cash, credit card).
  • Please call us before you leave for your trip. We would be happy to do everything we can to help you avoid blocked debit card transactions at your destination (or anywhere you're planning to stop along the way).
  • If you need assistance with anything while you're away, please contact our Answer Center at 419-524-0831 Monday-Friday 7:30am-5:30pm and Saturday 8:30am-1:00pm.
