LocalSIMKad, Local SIM cards, Prepaid phone service

LocalSIMKad is one of the most unique international phone carriers we cover here on TruTower. The SEDANIA Group-owned company based out of Malaysia is unique in that it’s sort of like having an international carrier with a national twist.

As its name implies, LocalSIMKad offers local SIMs in dozens of countries around the globe, all interconnected under the same brand, where travelers can purchase a SIM card for their destination before they even get there. The carrier recently launched in the United States and also has a number of local initiatives that help solidify its position as a value carrier and keep users connected through customized data and voice plans.

Tag-A-Traveller explores different traveler personality types

Initiatives such as the newly-launched Tag-A-Traveller Facebook contest, where Malaysian users are able to win a three day/two night holiday to Singapore, Bali, or Thailand. The contest is running until January 30 and explores some of the personality types of travelers connected to the web, whether they’re a consuming “Foodie,” an avid “Gamer,” or simply a “Selfie” photo taker.

“A big thank you to the organizers and SEDANIA Group for inviting me to officiate this product and campaign, Tag-A-Traveller,” said Malaysian Minister of Communication and Multimedia Y.B DATO’SRI AHMAD SHABERY BIN CHEEK. “I understand that the objective is to introduce LocalSIMKadTM to Malaysians as part of their necessity when travelling abroad. This global product, birthed from a local company embodies innovation, and is at the same time practical as it allows us to save on roaming charges – something we are all very aware of and sometimes, have no idea how to avoid.”

To be part of the contest, simply “Like” the LocalSIMKad Facebook page, and then watch the video to discover more about the personalities, rules and scoring system. After that, tag your friends as a Foodie, Gamer or Selfie.

Points will be scored when you share the app; the more you share, the more points you’ll score. The most points scored wins the aforementioned holiday. There are also 97 consolation prizes consisting of LocalSIMKad vouchers.

You can pick up a LocalSIMKad for your next holiday or vacation right here. Happy travels!
