Case Study

Harriet is from Auckland, New Zealand but is living in Australia while she completes her university degree. Harriet regularly goes home to see friends and family, and plans to meet her friends in Japan for a ski trip.

Harriet is unsure of the best way to secure her spending money for the trip, so when she researched, she found the NAB Traveller Card to suit her needs. She was able to load her AUD to JPY for her ski trip, and along with no international ATM or POS fees, Harriet was free to withdraw and spend money abroad worry-free.

She also found it handy when going home too, as she could load her hard-earned AUD to NZD with no hassle at all through the NAB Internet Banking app.
