That's the reason I notify my card companies when I'll be using them out of the country. I don't want them to be surprised by strange charges and decline legitimate ones.
In my instance Barclays was notified. Nevertheless the princess cruise authorization ping from the pacific princess caused an automatic fraud detect and shutdown. Tried to call Barclays from Europe but finally decided .....why bother.
