Barclaycard Arrival denies this transaction, every single time, without fail.
Do you put in a travel notice when you make this trip?
I was just wondering because I don't want any issues when I travel this month.
Sorry to raise this thread from the dead -- first log-in in months.
Anyway, no I didn't put in a travel notice. I travel frequently within the U.S. and outside, which is why it's so weird to me that this card always gets declined when I travel to the midwest. I usually put in travel notices when I leave the country (and run into no problems), but I never think to do so for trips to visit family in a state I visit all the time.
In other news, I was recently back in the Midwest and the dang card got declined again. I used it in two separate airports that day, no problem. But then I go to buy groceries in Nowheresville (where my parents live and I visit several times a year) and boom -- declined.
I also get frequently declined when I purchase plane tickets online. Which is SUPER annoying because you usually don't find out til the next day (when you use third-party sites) and then you have to re-buy the ticket.
