Frequently asked questions

What is NAB Travel Tools?

It's a feature within the NAB app that includes an easy to use foreign exchange calculator and some handy travel tips.

The foreign exchange calculator gives you the official Visa currency daily rates for 37 different currencies, including all the big ones:

  • US Dollars
  • Euros
  • Japanese Yen
  • Indonesian Rupiah
  • British Pounds
  • New Zealand Dollars.2

Why do I need a foreign exchange calculator?

Ever been shopping overseas and seen something you really want to buy, only you don't know how much it'll cost? You do a quick calculation in your head but you're still not sure. You're certainly not confident enough to start some hard bargaining.

Our foreign exchange calculator gives you a better indication of how much something costs you in Australian Dollars on your NAB Visa card.2

How do I set up NAB Travel Tools?

Setting up NAB Travel Tools is simple. Here's how:

  1. Login to the NAB app.
  2. Go to the Menu (or More on iOS).
  3. Tap Travel.
  4. Tap Travel Mode.
  5. NAB Travel Tools will now appear on the home screen when the app detects that you're out of Australia. To use Travel Tools, just tap Travel on the home screen.

Note: Locations services need to be enabled on your device for NAB Travel Tools to work.

The foreign exchange calculator requires the latest version of the NAB app, check if yours is up-to-date.

How current are your exchange rates?

We get our exchange rates from Visa and they're updated daily.2

How do I update the latest rates on to my device?

To update the exchange rates in NAB Travel Tools, you'll need to connect to the internet. We suggest you do this regularly for the latest daily rate.2,5

But don't stress - the foreign exchange calculator still works even if you're offline. It'll use the most recently updated conversion rates stored on your device.

Are these rates exactly what I'll be charged?

Not necessarily - the exact conversion rate on your statement may differ to foreign exchange calculator's rate because of the time it can take the merchant to process your payment.

Here's how Jim uses the foreign currency converter in the NAB app

Jim doesn't bite off more than he can chew

Jim is travelling overseas and has booked a table at the hottest restaurant in Paris.  He can’t wait to sample the local fare, though isn’t sure he can afford it as the entire menu is listed in Euros.  By quickly using the foreign currency converter in the NAB app, he’s able to see how much each item costs in Australian dollars and stays within his budget.  Better still, he can still use this feature when not connected to WiFi.1
