For many of us, life is busier than ever. There are moments when you just need to get away. It could be a destination wedding, an overseas trip to recharge the batteries, or a last-minute deal that’s too good to pass up.
Explore your options
Paying for your holiday after you get back might not be the most common approach – but it is becoming a better option. Particularly for everyday Australians who need more financial flexibility when it comes to travel.
No matter where you’re headed, you can travel now and pay later.
Using a personal loan
If you need to travel now, and don't quite have the savings, a personal loan could be the answer.
How it works
NAB Personal Loans start for as little as $5,000 at competitive rates. You can also choose a loan term that suits you.
As long as you’re eligible, you can jump online and apply today. On the other hand, you can apply in branch and if approved before 2pm you could get funds the same day.
When it comes to repayments, you can choose to pay them weekly, fortnightly or monthly – whatever suits your budget and needs best. Plus, you won’t get charged for making lump sum repayments or paying off your loan early.
Use our Personal Loan Borrowing Calculator to estimate how much you could afford to borrow.
Using your credit card
If you want to get away sooner, you could pay for some (or all) of your trip using your credit card. It’s one way of funding the good times – and even earning rewards points at the same time.
But there are a few things you need to consider before making this decision – such as credit card interest rates, fees and minimum credit limits.
Choose a card that’s right for you
Different credit cards suit different travellers. You might be looking for one with the lowest interest rate, or perhaps one that gives you the most points possible.
Our credit card comparison tool can help you figure out what card works best for you. It breaks down things like:
- long term balance transfers
- complimentary overseas travel insurance
- low interest rate cards
- annual card fees
- NAB Rewards Points
- Qantas Frequent Flyer Points.
Complimentary overseas travel insurance
One of the benefits you could enjoy is complimentary overseas travel insurance. Available when you use your personal NAB Visa Signature, Platinum or Premium credit cards on eligible purchases before you leave.
To be eligible, you’ll need to spend at least $500 on pre-paid transport, tours, and/or accommodation on your NAB card. You also need to be aged 90 years or under before you take off.
There’s more information online and in the NAB Card Insurance Policy Information Booklet (PDF, 507KB), opens in new window.
Earn points before you take off
When you use your NAB Rewards Card on everyday purchases, you’ll earn NAB Rewards Points. The best part is you can use them to help fund your trip via Webjet or one of our airline partners. Read the NAB Rewards Terms and Conditions (PDF, 315KB), opens in new window before you apply.
