Paul, I've never had this happen (knock on wood!). I use a Capital One card when I travel, and I've used it extensively when traveling, including other countries. I *have* heard of this happening, though, and it's probably a good idea to notify your credit company of your travel plans so it won't come as a surprise to them.
