[Query] Credit Card Add-On Airport Lounge Access

I am holding Axis Ace credit card, which has airport lounge access 4 times a calendar year. Do add-on card applicants also get their own independent lounge access as they have unique credit card number?

If yes, then is this universally same for all card issuers issuing unique credit card numbers for add-on applicants?

Can they charge me full price of lounge later on after getting in for free/Rs. 2?

Appreciate your thoughts and experiences, someone who uses lounge most of time or someone working at a lounge/bank.

HDFC regalia user here, able to access lounge on add-on card. Say if the access is allowed 2 times per quarter, you can use either 2 times on primary card or once each on primary and addon card. It is better if you understand the limitations talking to customer care as the rules are subjective to change.

Edit: The number on primary/add-on cards in case of HDFC remains the same, yet they are able to track the lounge access when both the primary and add-on card is used.

Card no will be same for add on and primary holder in case of hdfc, only benifit is lounge access but cannot be used for online offers as number remains same.
For all other banks add on card will have separate number

HSBC cards provide lounge access for add on card holders separately.
