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.

Why travel insurance is important

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.

Complimentary overseas travel insurance through your card

You could be covered with complimentary overseas travel insurance when you use your NAB Signature, Platinum or Premium credit or debit card on eligible purchases before you leave. Our complimentary overseas travel insurance can cover you for all kinds of situations including travel cancellations, lost luggage and rental vehicle excess.

To be eligible, you’ll need to spend at least $500 on pre-paid transport, tours, and/or accommodation on your NAB card. You’ll also need to be aged 90 years or under before you take off.
