Insurance and travel should go hand in hand. The last thing you want on holiday is to run into trouble, only to find out you’re not insured. Here's why travel insurance is important – and what NAB can offer you.

If you’re flying off overseas, we want to make sure you’re in safe hands. No matter how careful you are, things can go wrong when you’re travelling. And when you’re a long way from home – even a small hiccup can put you in a tricky spot.

The last thing you want on holiday is to run into trouble, only to find out you’re not covered. Taking out travel insurance is just common sense.
