American Express also doesn't need travel notifications.

Not sure why. When we traveled a couple of years ago and couldn't find "travel notification" on their web site, we called, and they said, "We know when you're traveling. You don't have to tell us."
We figured it was something in their algorithms that recognized in-person charges at airports and then differing but non-simultaneous locations. We'd charged the airline tickets to a different card, so it's not like they knew our plans ahead of time.

My credit union has on their home page an admonition to please notify them of travel plans. Apparently their new security software resulted in ATM cards not being honored without the notification, and they got complaints.
