Lost your NAB Traveller Card?

Please call NAB Traveller Card Services to report your lost or stolen card immediately.

If it’s your primary card, you’ll still be able to use your back-up card (and its PIN) in the same way as your primary card. But you’ll still need to tell us that the primary card has been lost or stolen, so that we can block it.

If you happen to lose both cards, we can send you replacement cards (as well as new PINs). This is free of charge and should arrive within 3 to 7 business days - depending on which country you’re travelling in.

Was anything else lost or stolen?

If your card wasn’t the only thing that was lost or stolen, you might need to make a claim on your insurance. We can help you with this:

  • Make a claim on your paid NAB Travel Insurance by contacting Allianz Global Assistance 24/7 claims hotline on 1300 555 013 (within Australia) or +61 7 3305 7499 reverse charge from overseas.
  • Make a claim through your complimentary overseas travel insurance in Australia by calling 1800 187 025 or +61 2 8862 8805 if you’re still overseas.
