There’s something really satisfying about paying for your overseas trip with your own hard-earned money. Plus, it’s a great way to enjoy some time off – without having to worry about heading into debt.
If you don't want to use credit to pay for your upcoming holiday, one of the simplest things to do is to load up your debit or traveller card with savings.
Here are some options for you:
NAB Visa debit cards
NAB Visa debit cards give you easy and secure access to your money – wherever Visa is accepted in the world. Unlike a credit card, using a debit card means you won’t have to worry about high credit interest rates, or paying off any holiday debts.
If you use a NAB Platinum Visa Debit card1, you won’t be charged a foreign currency fee on your international purchases. And, if you’ve pre-paid at least $500 on transport, tours, and/or accommodation on your NAB card, you could be eligible for complimentary overseas travel insurance. You’ll need to be 90 years or under before you take off.2 For the full list and any limits and excesses that apply, please read our NAB Card Insurance Policy Information Booklet (PDF, 420kb).
NAB Traveller Card
Using a prepaid option like the NAB Traveller Card3 is a great way to pay like a local during your trip. It’s a great choice whether you’re taking a two-month jaunt across Europe, or a short trip somewhere closer.
Prepaid accounts are separate to your other debit accounts. Essentially, you can load them up with foreign currencies before you go, and while you’re overseas.
With a NAB Traveller card, you can load up to 10 currencies. This gives you access to money wherever MasterCard4 is accepted (around 43 million locations worldwide). It’s easy to manage and reload your card5 through the NAB app or NAB Internet Banking. You can also reload it via BPAY®6 or at any NAB branch. Plus, you can travel a little cheaper with $0 load, unload, inactivity and overseas ATM fees5,7.
Foreign Currency Cash
Cash is often the only option for incidentals like taxi fares, street food – or those incredible deals at the local market. With NAB, you can enjoy competitive exchange rates in over 50 currencies. Order foreign currency cash online and pick up from your branch of choice before taking off. This means less time withdrawing, and more time exploring.
