If you need a replacement credit card while traveling due to loss or theft, there are several options available.
First, contact your credit card company or bank to report the loss or theft, then request a replacement card.
Many providers will expedite a card to you. Some may even offer free expedited delivery of replacement cards.
If you are stranded without a credit card, ask your card provider if overnight delivery is a service they offer.
If you are abroad, contact the company's international customer service line to report and request a replacement.
Use mobile options like Google Pay or Apple Pay that allow you to continue making payments without a physical card.
Be prepared by recording your credit card information. Know which card offers the fastest, free card replacement.
Inform your credit card company of your destination and dates of travel for faster delivery of your replacement card.
Once you get your card, check the available credit and balance to plan your next steps and review any unauthorized use.
