Travel Cards

We are proud to announce, Pre-Paid EMV® Travel Cards are now available at select Scott Credit Union branches1.  These pre-paid travel cards are fully equipped with chip-card technology (also known as EMV®), as well as, mag stripe, and signature capabilities.  Using these cards will enable you, our members, to travel internationally without worrying about card acceptance in countries that prefer or mandate chip-cards at the point-of-sale.  The cards also include traditional magnetic stripe technology for acceptance in both the US and other markets.  Pre-paid travel cards are safer than cash, more flexible than traveler’s checks, and through chip-card and traditional US magnetic stripe technologies, are accepted at millions of retailers worldwide.  It’s the smart way for you to travel.
