Travelling overseas for work? Here’s some priceless advice.Posted: September 21, 2012
Did you know that international data downloads are not included in your Griffith mobile data plan?
Downloading data when travelling overseas can result in a bill of hundreds, even thousands of dollars with excessive downloads leaving you majorly out-of-pocket.
To make sure that you’re trip is productive (without any nasty surprises), we’ve got some ideas to help you stay connected without racking up huge bills.
Save up to 95% using a Local SIM card/phone number
A local SIM card is available to purchase at most airports and is recommended when travelling around a single country, as you use local call and data rates.
Save up to 75% using a Travel SIM card
TravelSIM can be purchased prior to travelling and provides a single phone number that works in multiple countries. This is a pre-paid service with very competitive rates.
Save 100% using Eduroam and free WiFi hotspots
Eduroam is available at participating education institutions. Use wireless networks to download data or make phone calls via a ‘soft phone’.
