How to save on roaming charges while travelling abroad

  • 419 days ago
  • When you plan an international travel, you list out everything that you wish to do along with the expenses you would incur on food, travel and accommodation. While you indulge in a travel spree and come back home to a shockingly lengthy phone bill, only to realize that you should have planned better to not spend a fortune on staying connected. In short choose the right sim card for travelling abroad.

    ‘Roaming’ - as exciting as it sounds to be, the charges that are levied on it are sure enough reasons for you to keep a close check on how to save on it as much as you can. While you are yet in the process of settling into a new international culture, the high roaming bills add on to the list of worries you already have. Most of us have learnt the hard ways of dealing with high roaming bills and these are the reasons why we end up experimenting different ways every time we need to travel abroad.

    Keeping your device switched off

    This trick supposedly lets you save by not spending a single penny on communicating, though it might not work best when your boss is trying to call you or while your family is trying to reach you in case of emergencies. It’s still hard to resist not to look at your phone to scroll through Facebook notifications or reply to your Whatsapp messages, so this won’t work well in most of the cases.

    Activating a roaming plan on an existing number

    Most of you might opt to use your existing number in an international country with an upgraded roaming plan. What you need to be aware of is the fact that the local charges applicable in the country you to travel might be high. Which means calling back home with high charges would definitely be unreasonable.

    Finding a Wi-Fi spot

    A free Wi-Fi zone is definitely an attention grabber for people who are looking for ways to get in touch with family and friends back home. While they come with absolutely no cost, the fact that you will have to be glued to a certain radius of an area makes it extremely inconvenient. What if you need to share something instantly? Who would want to wait to reach the free Wi-Fi spot to say something that means as much in that very moment?

    Opting for a local number

    The number of people who land at the airport and purchase a local sim are plenty in number. While staying in touch with localities might cost less with a local sim, when you have to connect back to people of your home country, you will still have to spend a fortune. Not to forget the amount of paper work required out of you could be annoying too.

    The best way to save upto 90% of roaming charges

    If you kept wondering on what could then be the right trick to save on roaming charges, the ideal way out would be to opt for an international roaming sim card. Here’s a list of benefits you could gain when you buy an international sim card:

    • The international travel sim card will be activated even before you land at the airport. The pre-activated sim thus saves you the effort of queuing at kiosks and undergoing troublesome paper work at the airports to buy a new international sim card.

    • A prepaid roaming sim card comes with no hidden costs, letting you pay a fixed amount only for those services that you wish to use.

    • Free incoming, 3G and 4G data plans let you share anything anywhere without having to hold your excitement until you reach a free Wi-Fi zone.

    • The overseas sim card works like a local country number, letting you share endless moments, with charges being applicable as per the local country you have just visited. The international sim card also lets you travel to different countries with no hassles of additional roaming charges.

    • The overseas sim cards also let youan appropriate plan that best suits your usage patterns. Be it texting, calling or both, you could choose the best international roaming plan as per your usage and convenience.

    • The international roaming sim cards also come with online recharge options that let you top up your talk time on the go. So you could talk as much as you want without worrying about finding a recharge store for a top up.

    We suggest you make the right choice of the best international roaming sim, to not just save big but also travel with utmost peace of mind. While now you still come back home to a surprising high list of calls made and sms’s sent and never to a lengthy bill that competes with your overall travel expenses.
