Want to avoid financial mishaps on holiday this summer?…

…here’s how you could have a stress-free holiday.

Going somewhere more exotic? let your bank or building society know when, where and how long you’re away for, to reduce the likelihood of your card being blocked.

You could register for a mobile payment service before you leave…

… then if your card is lost or stolen, you’ll still be able to pay for things using your mobile phone.

Arrange travel insurance, or check if your current account provides cover…

… and make sure you keep emergency numbers in a safe place in case you lose your phone.

Try not to have all your cash and cards with you at once.

… but if the worst does happen, cancel your cards immediately…

… and report any loss to the police, as your insurance company may ask for the report.

Now that’s all covered, enjoy that well-earned break.
