Tips for traveling with your Wells Fargo Business Debit Card

It’s the easy, convenient, and secure way to pay

Use your business debit card for travel and international purchases:

  • Access your business funds, anytime and anywhere
  • Make purchases worldwide
  • Stay on a budget while traveling

You don’t need an international debit card for business travel. Use your business debit card around the world* for making purchases or payments and getting cash from ATMs, just like you would at home. With your debit card abroad, you can:

  • Get local currency internationally at more than 1.5 million Visa® and Plus® network ATMs.
  • Use your card at participating merchants worldwide. When you pay with your business debit card, you may be asked to sign for a purchase or enter your Personal Identification Number (PIN).
  • Use your business debit chip card internationally, where chip technology is already in place. The chip provides added security because it is extremely difficult to counterfeit or copy when used at a chip-enabled terminal or ATM, and does not store any personal information. View the FAQs or take a tour.
  • Rest easy knowing that your card comes with Zero Liability protection at no extra cost, which means you will not be held liable for any unauthorized transactions as long as you report them promptly.
  • Let Wells Fargo know in advance of your travel plans, so we can monitor your card and account while you’re away.
  • Receive 24/7 fraudulent activity tracking for your accounts.
  • Get expert help if your identity is ever stolen.

Important notes about using your business debit card overseas:

  • Wells Fargo charges an International Purchase Transaction Fee which is 3% of the transaction amount for each purchase made with your business debit card in a foreign currency that has been converted into a U.S. dollar amount by a network.
  • A $5 fee is assessed for ATM cash withdrawals made outside the U.S.

Remember to notify Wells Fargo before you use your business debit card overseas* so that we can monitor your accounts appropriately.

Tips

Find out your daily limit before you travel.

Some foreign ATMs: 

Offer instructions in English (not all). 

Are only available during business hours.

Only permit transactions involving your primary linked business checking account.

Withdraw enough cash to cover expenses should you travel to small towns. Many do not have ATMs. Remember to keep your money and card out of public view.
If you are unable to use your business debit card at an ATM, use it to get an over-the-counter cash disbursement at a local bank.
