O2 UK has announced the launch of a new service called Travel Alerts from O2. The service has been trialled with credit card issuer MBNA and is designed to help people protect themselves against overseas card fraud. Instead of notifying their bank every time they go overseas, customers can opt into Travel Alerts for their card issuer to be notified when O2 detects them mobile roaming in a different country. O2 is now working to make the service available to all UK consumers before the start of the 2016 summer season, regardless of their bank or mobile provider.
