Financial Tips While You Travel

First Republic Bank

Planning a trip?  Here is some quick advice to be sure you don’t have to worry about accessing your money wherever you are in the world.

  • Debit card limits - To better prepare for your trip, you might want to consider how you will be using your First Republic ATM/Debit card. Standard withdrawal limits apply; please contact your banker for more information
  • Travel Declaration - Prior to traveling, notify your banker or submit a Travel Declaration via Banking Online. This will help the bank provide uninterrupted banking services. You should also inform your credit card company of your travel plans
  • Traveling to sanctioned countries – While you are traveling within a country where the United States has applied economic sanctions, First Republic Bank, like all U.S. financial institutions, is required to restrict access to banking services:    
    • First Republic-issued ATM Card and ATM/Debit Card
    • Online Banking
    • Banker assistance with transactions and inquiries 
  • If you are planning to travel to a sanctioned country, contact your banker in advance for assistance with transactions
  • ATM/Debit card troubleshooting – If your ATM/Debit card doesn’t work while you are traveling, consider these common reasons:  
    • The ATM you are using may be out of network.  If your card isn’t working, you might want to try another ATM nearby. 
    • You may be over your daily limit. Please contact your banker.
    • You are requesting an amount over the ATM’s limit. You may avoid this by requesting a lower amount.

If your card is lost, contact ATM & Debit Card Support immediately. Check the website for international toll-free dialing instructions: Dialing Instructions (PDF)
