Using your mobile phone plan on holiday just doesn’t make sense, calls are expensive, and roaming rates can reach astronomical levels. A top tip for keeping down costs is to switch your mobile phone provider to a local SIM card to take advantage of local tariffs, plans and deals.
Switching to a local mobile phone plan could save you vast 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 friends, family or even local services should never be underestimated. Your phone is your lifeline, especially when travelling to the far reaches of the globe.
Whether you’re a student on a gap year, a group of friends making the trip you’ve always dreamed of, going it alone or travelling with family, local mobile phone plans will leave you with extra cash to splash while on holiday or to simply save.
All local mobile phone plans will require you to have a SIM-unlocked GSM compatible international phone. Contact your service provider before you set off on your travels to double check you have this option.
