Buying Travel Money
There are two ways you can get some foreign currency for your next overseas trip – in a branch or ordering it online.
Most NAB branches will have a limited stock of the most common currencies. If you want to check the exchange rate before you go in, click here. If you need a larger amount of currency or are travelling to a less common country, ordering online and picking it up in the branch may be a better option.
You can order travel money online through this link. It is a very easy process but you must pay for the currency via BPAY. It also takes a minimum of 5 business days before you can pick it up from the branch you choose. Unlike buying from the branch, there is no $10 fee if you order online.
