Lost one of the only two cards I brought and since I'm the primary on the Citi card we couldn't get into DH's account. It was a total nightmare.

This is why on trips, my husband and I carry different credit cards that are issued by different banks.

We let Citi card know we were traveling one year.

My husband was in Toronto with his son for a few days. He didn't have phone service during the day while he didn't have access to the hotel wifi. I placed a travel notice on the card we use for out of country transactions. Fortunately, the bank texted me and not him. They had disabled the card because of transactions in Toronto. I was able to reactivate the card. What good is a travel notice if they shutdown the card for using it at the specified location?
