Is it beneficial to have more than one credit card?

I currently have only one credit card. Would it be a good idea to have another in case the card is lost or in case of fraudulent use, which in both cases requires a new card to be issue. Having at least two credit cards seems smart especially when travelling.


Is there any benefit to having Card #2 with the same bank as card #1?


Thank you for any advice.
