How to Apply for the National Bank World MasterCard

The National Bank World MasterCard is a pretty expensive credit card. The annual fee for it is $125 and the APR is pretty high at 19.99% (APR is subject to change). It does, however, offer up to 2 points for every dollar spent and a travel insurance program that saves you money on certain travel-related insurance policies. You also get exclusive access to the National Bank World MasterCard lounge at Montreal-Trudeau airport where you can hang out with other World and World Elite members. Aside from that, the only real draw is a 3.9% introductory APR for the first 6 billing cycles. Overall, it’s not a terrible card, but it may be worth shopping around for a cheaper travel rewards card.
