Picking the best credit card for travel can be tricky. Use our product selector tool to help you choose the best credit card for your needs.

Travel with points credit cards

Credit cards that let you earn points on your everyday purchases are a great option for travelling. While NAB doesn’t offer specific travel rewards credit cards, we do have several rewards cards like NAB Rewards and Qantas Rewards that allow you to earn and redeem points for a variety of rewards, including travel. With travel rewards cards you could enjoy great deals on domestic and international flights, selected accommodation and even holiday packages.

Travel with a no-interest credit card

Travelling with a credit card that charges no interest could save you money when it comes to paying off your overseas purchases after you’ve returned home.

Travel with a debit card

A debit card is another option for managing your spending while you travel. With a debit card, you’re spending your own money, which can help you stick to your travel budget.  

The NAB Platinum Visa Debit card is a good alternative to a travel money card.

Travel with no fees

Fund your travel spending with a credit card that charges no international transaction fee. This will help you avoid extra fees on any in-store or online purchases you make while overseas.

Avoiding other card fees

Read the fine print and look for credit cards that don’t charge fees for overseas cash withdrawals or checking your balance at an international ATM. You can avoid balance inquiry fees by checking your accounts in NAB Internet Banking or the NAB app while you travel. You can also avoid cash withdrawal fees by planning ahead and organising cash in international currencies before you travel.
