You can use the app offline as well, so it can be used on the go when you don’t have WiFi.

NAB’s executive general manager of digital Jonathan Davey said there are almost six million Aussies travelling abroad each year and travel can be daunting and stressful.

“Our customers have been asking us for assistance with things like foreign exchange rates so they have peace of mind on costs and can focus on enjoying their trip,” Mr Davey said. 

“Using the Visa Developer Platform and working with CIBC, who had identified similar customer travel pain points, we have collaboratively worked to provide our customers with simple travel information and advice to make their trip that little bit easier.”

The downside of the tool is that you do have to be a NAB customer to use it, but if travellers love it, the other banks may follow.
