Matrix Cellular has announced attractive ‘Summer Offers’ on prepaid SIM cards for travelers planning to visit USA, UK, Europe, Australia, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia this season.
The new prepaid plans are available for as low as Rs. 2999 for countries such as USA, UK, Europe & Australia and for Rs. 999 only for Singapore, Thailand & Malaysia. The prepaid plans offers bundle of benefits and freebies such as unlimited data, free calls to India, free local calls and incoming calls. Apart from this one can also buy family add on prepaid SIM cards for their kids for as low as Rs. 499 only.
The above offers are quite attractive for overseas travelers compared to buying 3 SIM Cards for a 2 week trip in USA this summer would be $120-150. Also there is an added hassle of remaining disconnected for a period of a few hours before procuring a SIM and one may anyway end up spending an additional Rs.500-1000 on international roaming per SIM to make/receive just a few calls during this period. Also activating international roaming plans for such a trip for a family would cost Rs.12000-15000. Also, cab booking app services are harder to use on international roaming since the driver may not call the Indian number and lastly any local business contacts also may not like to call an international number to get connected with the user.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Dugal, Director said, “Going by the statistics, there is an exponential increase in the number of people who go for foreign vacations during summer holidays. Our special prepaid family plans this summer holidays is another milestone in our relentless pursuit of keeping our customers stay connected across the globe with convenient and cost effective solutions. “
