Military Travel Credit Cards Have Per-Trip Spending Limit

Posted:

Government-issued military travel credit cards delivered beginning December 2010 come with new spending limits. Approximately 480,000 military travel cards to airmen and Air Force civilians will be delivered by April 2011.

MILITARY TRAVEL CARD SPENDING LIMITS

Military travel credit cards are issued by Citibank. The 2011 Military Travel Cards differ from previous government credit cards in the travel card's expense limit, which is set at the predicted cost for a military trip. The military travel credit card is set to refuse charges above and beyond the predicted trip estimate.

When the military service member is not traveling, the card's value is reset to $0, which blocks the card from being used for any additional expenses.

SPENDING LIMITS AVOID UNECESSARY DEBT

Air Force officials are enforcing the spending limit to reduce the build up of unnecessary debt for military Air Force members. The 2011 travel credit cars will prevent service members from using the credit card for unauthorized personal expenses, or unintentionally spending more than the government can afford to pay.

Increased credit access for military service members is another hallmark of the 2011 military travel card. This military travel card may be issued to service members with poor credit ratings, who may have been blocked from travel cards due to previous credit history. The 2011 military travel credit card doesn't even require a credit check because of the spending limitation, for military trip expenses only.

LOOK FOR YOUR MILITARY TRAVEL CREDIT CARD

First priority recipients of the military travel card are always those service members and civilians who currently have travel credit cards set to expire by the end of February. Service members and Air Force civilians who have made three or fewer trips in the past year are also first to receive the latest military travel card, as well as service members assigned to the Air Staff.
