Xmas Holiday-makers Likely to Spend Just as Much on Their Mobile Phone Bills Whilst Abroad than on Cost of their Holiday

Share Article

A study conducted by global telecommunications company WorldSIM reveals that an average user utilising their mobile phone whilst abroad over the Christmas/New Year period is likely to spend just as much on their mobile phone bill as on the cost of their holiday itself.

Using WorldSIM was fantastic because my friends and family could call me on my mobile just as if I was in the UK and I did not pay a penny to receive their calls. The last time I was in Dubai my mobile phone bill came to £227. This time my bill was only £27!

Travellers, whether business or leisure, are often unaware or even overlook the cost of using their mobile phones whilst abroad. With roaming charges remaining at unjustifiably high levels, holiday makers going abroad over the festive season are likely to incur mobile phone bills that cost just as much if not more than the holiday abroad itself costs.

Malika Chandoo, Business Development Manager of global telecommunications company WorldSIM comments, "Using mobile phones has become second nature and consumers often overlook or are unaware of the unbelievably high cost of receiving and making calls on their mobiles whilst abroad. For example, Egypt remains a top holiday destination this Christmas. With average prices for receiving a call in Egypt on your mobile at £1.25/min and costs for making a call to the UK at £1.70/min, an average user on a one week holiday can easily incur a mobile phone bill in excess of £200."

WorldSIM (http://www.worldsim.com) has launched a revolutionary service to solve this problem by offering travellers a pay as you go global roaming SIM card with the added benefit that receiving calls is free when travelling in over 65 countries. WorldSIM's service means that those going abroad for business or pleasure can now be easily contactable on their mobile phones without having to worry about paying expensive roaming charges, queuing at generally overcrowded and expensive calling cabins, or going through the trouble of finding local SIMs.

One recent holiday maker returning from Dubai commented, "Using WorldSIM was fantastic because my friends and family could call me on my mobile just as if I was in the UK and I did not pay a penny to receive their calls. The last time I was in Dubai my mobile phone bill came to £227. This time my bill was only £27!"

WorldSIM is especially great for business travellers and can save companies and sole traders thousands of pounds of their annual bill. Dave, a sole-trader, who regularly travels to France every year states 'WorldSIM should save me at least £1,000 on my annual mobile bill which is fantastic for the bottom line.'

WorldSIM works in 115 countries -- all the major business and tourist destinations, and offers consumers free roaming in over 65 countries at a time when the mobile industry claim that proposals to scrap roaming charges are unworkable despite EU pressure. WorldSIM is simple and easy to use, comes with a UK mobile number, and works with unlocked GSM phones. There is no need to change your existing number.
