Optus and TravelSIM Australia have launched gotravelsim, a mobile service designed specifically for international travellers and students in Australia.
“We recognise the needs of inbound travellers, especially for those working and travelling in remote areas. The partnership with Optus and gotravelsim is a great fit for both brands,” said TravelSIM Australia CEO Jamien Zimmerman.
“Providing travellers with confidence that their service is backed by Optus network coverage from capital cities to rural and regional towns.”
“Smartphones play an important role in our day-to-day activities and our great value plans are perfect for the modern, data-hungry travellers who are using their smart phones to communicate with loved ones all around the world.”
“Customers can simply purchase their gotravelsim while they are overseas, and have it delivered to their accommodation on their arrival.”
The new mobile offering’s set-up, packages and support has been customised to deliver better service for international visitors to Australia.
“Even before their plane lands, travellers can simplify settling into Australia by obtaining their local mobile number and sharing it with friends and family.”
Available now, gotravelsim offers both month-to-month and yearly voice and data plans.
Managing Director, Optus Wholesale and Satellite, Stuart Bird, said, “The partnership with TravelSIM Australia further represents Optus’ commitment to delivering unrivalled mobile solutions to suit Australian needs.
“The youth travel market in Australia presents a substantial market opportunity for both Optus and TravelSIM. With 2.2 million young travellers visiting our shores each year, gotravelsim offers an affordable and flexible mobile plan delivered over Optus’ award-winning mobile network.”
