Reducing your exposure is vital.
Limit your use of Wi-Fi and limit purchases if at all possible.
Reduce conveniences while at a resort or hotel. Pay cash or settle the bill at time of purchase rather than charging it to your room.
Let your card company know when you're embarking on a trip. This way, they'll know it's you using the card and they can keep you apprised of suspicious activity.
Keep an eye on your finances. Watch for charges you don't recognize. Murphy says thieves often make small charges using a stolen card as a test. If the tiny charge isn't disputed, they'll become bolder and make larger charges. Staying on top of card activity can save you from a lot of hassles in the long run.
Murphy recommends you have fun and enjoy, you're on vacation after all, but by taking a few simple steps, you'll be able to relax and have peace of mind while you're on the road.
