Important Information From Travel and Transport Regarding New EMV Chip Card Update in Traveler Profiles
October 30, 2015
To our valued customers:
With the advent of new technologies and heightened security measures, many credit card companies have issued their cardholders new credit cards containing an embedded EMV security chip.
The new cards may appear to be the same card number, but will have a new expiration date and CVV (card verification value) on the back. Many travelers with corporate cards have received these new EMV chip-enabled cards, believing the card in their travel profile will still match.
However, this will cause a decline due to the fact that the expiration and CVV of the new card do not match what is listed in the profile. In addition, travelers receiving these new corporate cards must change their profile form of payment immediately, as the previous card will be deactivated as soon as the new EMV chip card is activated, causing further declines and errors for any current reservations booked with the deactivated card.
Close to 60% of card users have received these new chip cards from their credit card provider, so this issue is far reaching for travelers booking through the online booking tool without changing their form of payment to the new card information.
If your travelers have received a new chip credit card, they must update their corporate card in their profile before booking any travel. Failure to do this can result in fare increases and canceled hotel space because of incorrect form of payment details.
If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please contact Joe Zaborowski, 402-280-2100.
U.S Department of State issues Worldwide Travel Alert
On November 23, the US Department of State issued a Worldwide Travel Alert for its citizens. The alert warns of the possible risks of travel due to increased terrorist threats, citing a growing threat from such organizations as the Islamic State (IS), Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and others. At this time, there is no credible indication that an attack is imminent or even in the planning stages; the warning calls upon people to remain vigilant in public spaces, using public transportation, and avoid large crowds or crowded areas.
The Department of State is strongly urging U.S. citizens traveling abroad to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). Travelers that are enrolled may receive important safety and security announcements, if necessary, based on their location. Enrolling also makes it easier for the U.S. Embassy to contact travelers in the event of an emergency. U.S. citizens should also ensure they are aware of the local phone numbers for both police and medical emergencies since the numbers may vary by country and do not always follow the U.S. 911 system.
