With summer holidays fast approaching, travelers can feel more assured that they won’t receive huge roaming bills due to enforced regulations that has lowered the cost of roaming within Europe. Those going to Asia, however, could find themselves in a quandary about how to go about saving on roaming fees with the increases in cost that have resulted as a result of lower roaming in Europe.
Over the last few years, international roaming charges have been raised outside the EU to compensate for lost revenue, particular to Asian countries. Simply receiving an incoming call can cost over £1.50 per min, with many users returning back home with the shock of a phone bill over £1,000 – in many cases more than the cost of the entire trip. Fortunately, however, travelers do indeed have better options. Enter WorldSIM.
WorldSIM announced on Friday that they will now be extending their free roaming offering to cover most of Asia, which means incoming calls can now be received at no cost in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea and now also India.
