Expert review

You can link a NAB Platinum Visa Debit Card with your NAB everyday transaction account to get a few extra benefits and perks, particularly for travel.

This debit card does come with a $10 monthly fee, but in exchange you’ll pay no international transaction fees on overseas purchases both in store and online. In comparison, the standard NAB Visa Debit Card charges a 3% international transaction fee on overseas purchases.

You’ll also earn 1% cashback on tap and go purchases, capped at $10 a month cashback. This means that if you make $1000 worth of tap and go transactions in the month, you’ll get $10 cashback. This type of cashback offer is really rare for a debit card.

NAB Platinum Visa Debit Card holders are also entitled to complimentary travel insurances, and get access to NAB’s Concierge Service for assistance booking flights, hotels or even restaurants.

    Hi,

    I am travelling overseas and want a card that I can use for a few weeks that doesn’t charge foreign fees. I am a NAB customer, so was just going to apply for the platinum visa debit card, but only want it for my overseas purchases, as it has a monthly fee. Can I keep both cards and cancel one when once I have finished my travel?

    Thanks,
    Peter

      Hi Peter,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Kindly get in touch with NAB if you consider getting 2 Visa debit cards. You may also consider using travel money cards while on holiday overseas as they prevent in charging you foreign transaction fees like NAB’s Visa debit card. You may also learn your travel money guide of the country you’re traveling to by clicking the country at the left side of the travel money card’s page.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    Is the Nab Platinum Visa Debit card linked to my current everyday account with Nab or do I need to open a new account?

      Hi Andrew,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      Since you’re an existing NAB customer, this card must be linked to your existing everyday account. Kindly contact NAB directly on this matter or upgrade to the new debit card from your mobile banking app or through Internet banking.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,

      Hi David,

      Thanks for your message and for contacting finder.

      It’s understandable to want to cancel a card, cut it up and be done with. However, this doesn’t entirely cancel your card.

      Here is a page to guide you how to properly cancel your credit card in Australia.

      Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.

      Cheers,
      Nikki

    Hello,

    I understand what no international transaction fees means, though you can please explain what the difference is when referring to Overseas Eftpos Fee 3% above?

    Thanks for providing such a great service, Finder is a fantastic website.

      Hi Andrew,

      Thanks for your message and for visiting finder – the leading comparison website & general information service built to give you advice in your buying decision needs. How are you doing today?

      An international transaction fee is generally a fee charged by a bank for international purchases made online or in-store when a customer uses a payment card.

      An EFTPOS or Electronic Fund Transfer at Point of Sale is a system used by business involving electronic funds transfers based on the use of payment cards, such as debit or credit cards, at payment terminals located at points of sale. An overseas EFTPOS fee is a fee charged by a store when a customer uses their payment cards in their EFTPOS.

      Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.

      Thanks,
      Nikki
