Indians are becoming more receptive to the idea of expanding their travel habits, by gradually taking more interest in exploring new destinations. Whether people are travelling for leisure or for business purposes, they would surely need to make some definite calls to stay in contact with their family, friends and business associates in the home country.
With recent developments in the telecom sector, communication from a foreign country has become easy. Today, number of telecom companies have come up with international SIM cards to provide cost-effective solution to international travellers. These cards allow travellers to receive free incoming calls, make local and international calls at affordable prices, free messaging, etc.
Types of international SIM cardsThere are basically two types of international SIM cards- Global SIM cards and country-specific SIM cards.
Global SIM cards: These cards allow travellers to roam seamlessly from country to country. It is preferred to buy global SIM card if you are planning to visit multiple countries on a single trip or travelling frequently to different countries. These cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates.
Country-specific SIM cards: These cards are specifically designed for travellers visiting to a particular country. For e.g., if a person is planning to visit Saudi Arabia, a country-specific Saudi Arabia SIM card is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch.
Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Saudi Arabia SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming charges.
What to check before buying an international SIM card While purchasing a prepaid international SIM, one need to check whether the cell phone is compatible with the card or not. In certain cases, the cell phone gets locked making the card useless. Travellers need to obtain an international cell phone capable of working in foreign countries. Further, these unlocked cell phones are also available on rent.
