Going on vacation? Compare local cell phone plans on finder.com

Using your cell phone plan on vacation just doesn’t make economic sense, roaming rates are high and call rates can reach astronomical levels. A top tip for keeping down costs is to switch your cell phone provider to an International sim card provider to take advantage of local tariffs, plans and deals.

Switching to a local cell phone plan could save you large sums of money. Local prepaid SIM cards will allow you to surf the internet, access social media and talk to family and friends at a much cheaper rate.

The importance of having a direct link to family, friends, or even local services should never be underestimated. Your phone is your lifeline, especially when traveling to the far reaches of the globe.

      Hi Waseem,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      If your SIM card is provided by a telco provider in Pakistan then you have a national number. That national number you have can become an international number if you activate your international roaming service. This means, you will still be able to receive calls; send texts and use internet data outside of your country.

      If you want to activate your international roaming service, you need to contact your service provider and ask them about the activation process.

      I hope this answers your question.

      Cheers,
      Charisse

    Can I buy NZ sim cards outside NZ as we enter NZ on a Cruise.

      Hi John,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      There are currently no shops that are selling New Zealand sims outside of New Zealand. If you still have time before your departure to New Zealand, it is advisable to order a New Zealand sim card online through online marketplaces. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie
