How Do I Let Suntrust Bank Know That I Am Traveling?

When you are traveling whether it is from state to state in the United States or internationally, you want to make sure your bank account is accessible at all times. Notifying SunTrust Bank online, via telephone or in person that you will be traveling will help prevent your account from being flagged and locked due to suspicious activity.

With banks taking more steps to protect customer accounts, many offer flagging services where the bank's software recognizes unusual activity, and can freeze accounts until the account owner can confirm the activity is legitimate. One of the issues that may cause an account to be flagged is activity in a geographic location outside the customer's normal location. If you are a SunTrust Bank customer, you can prevent your account from being flagged when you travel. How do you let SunTrust Bank know you are traveling? You can get information and support by calling customer service, and you can follow the steps outlined here.

Notifying SunTrust of Upcoming Travel

If you are going to be traveling (especially traveling abroad), you will want to notify SunTrust Bank of the dates you will be traveling and where. This will help protect your account from being frozen while you are away. A frozen account could greatly impact your ability to return home, so you do not want to be without financial resources at your fingertips. You can notify SunTrust Bank of upcoming travel online, via telephone or in person.


To let SunTrust Bank know online that you will be traveling, follow these steps:

  1. Open SunTrust Bank's website in your computer browser.
  2. Log into your account.
  3. Go to "My Settings."
  4. Click on "My Profile."
  5. In your profile, select "Travel Notifications."
  6. Enter your travel dates (departure and return dates).
  7. Add your destination details (whether it inside the United States or international travel).
  8. For United States travel, enter the state you will be visiting. For international travel, enter the country or countries you will visit.
  9. Submit the notification.

Via Telephone

You can call SunTrust Bank here and advise the customer service representative you will soon be traveling. Provide your account number or identifying information. Then give the representative the dates and destination or destinations of your upcoming travel. The information will be logged into the SunTrust Bank system and prevent your account from being locked when you use your credit or debit card at your travel destination.

In Person

If you live near a SunTrust Bank branch location, you can go there and submit a notification of upcoming travel in person. The bank representative will be able to input the information into SunTrust Bank's system.
