So, here I am again traveling for another #rodtrips adventure. As what I’ve been doing from my previous travels, I usually share relevant details that would help you save in our own little way. I know all of you probably planned about tours, outfits, shopping and pocket money but there is one thing we somehow miss in preparing for our international travel.
Today, I’m not going to talk my itinerary but I’m interested to share you about roaming.
From my previous trips, I always subscribe to a 599/day ALL DAY ROAMING from GLOBE. For SMART, it would cost us 500/Day. As we all know, some travel necessities become more expensive the longer one spends abroad, so does the roaming service.
Somehow, I find this roaming plan expensive especially if you don’t use WIFI that much. So there were times when I just rely on WIFIs from establishments, which is unreliable because I am a heavy data user.
This trip to LA is quite the longest vacation I had for the year, so I really did some research about the roaming options. And I found one! This time, staying for longer can be more fun and worry-free with a new and more value-for-money offer from Globe Roam Surf. Longer stays in the USA, South Korea and Australia gives customers more affordable roaming rates for as low as only P300/day!
Filipinos can spend their holidays in the U.S., visit the scenic sites in South Korea or experience the fun in Australia without worrying too much on staying connected online 24/7.
NEW ALL DAY DATA ROAM OPTIONS
- Roam Surf 3D for P1,499, (previously will cost P1,797)
- Roam Surf 5D for P2,299, (previously will cost P2,995)
- Roam Surf 7D for P2,999, (previously will cost P4,193)
- Roam Surf 15D for P4,999 (previously will cost P8,985)
- Roam Surf 30D for P8,999 (previously will cost P17,790)
I’ll be staying here for more than a week so I tried the Roam Surf for 7 days as starter. So If I compare to what I usually avail (599/ day) for seven days, that is P4,193.00 but now I am paying for just P2,999 and I already save P1,194 for a week. Wow that’s a couple of dinner to spend!
“Staying connected has become a priority of virtually everyone, and has become an absolute must when traveling abroad. This is why we are complementing our customers’ travels with options for their data roaming needs. They can avail of our daily rate of P599 simply by turning on their data roaming on or they can enjoy substantial savings with our longer day Roam Surf offers,” says Coco Domingo, VP for Roaming International.
Now I have data to post some of my curated IG photos regardless of the time. Look, here are some:
The longer day offers of Roam Surf are currently available only for the U.S.A., South Korea and Australia. Registration is necessary upon landing at country of destination, before turning on mobile data and data roaming.
To register, customers just need to dial *143# choose Roaming & Int’l., Roaming Promos, Data Promos, then choose the preferred Roam Surf variant. Customers need to ensure they are connected to T-Mobile or AT&T in the U.S.A., SK Telecom in South Korea, or Optus in Australia to enjoy the discounted daily rates.
