Some of the credit card issuers have a policy called ‘automatic credit card deactivation’ where they de-activate a card when it is used nearly six times or more within 24 hours. This is done in case the card has been stolen and has been used illegally, the bank intends to stop any further loss, and hence it is crucial to keep the bank informed about one’s travel, to avoid any such inconveniences.
