I have a credit limit of $300, but I am going on vacation and want to increase my limit to $1,000. Can I add the additional $700 on the card to reflect the balance of $1,000? Thanks in advance

The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.
If it is a secured credit card, you can increase your credit limit by increasing your security deposit. If it is a general credit card, you may request a credit limit increase. Whether the issuer will increase your limit or not depends on your credit performance. Also, note that most likely you will be charged a fee for this.
