Getting an International SIM Card: A Guide for Frequent Travelers
Published on 28.08.2023
Frequent travellers going for international trips should opt for an international SIM card to stay connected and enjoy affordable calling, texting, or data services. An international SIM with an active international phone plan ensures you do not incur excessive roaming charges while travelling abroad. The international SIM card works with partner networks so that users effectively communicate via calls or text messages and access the internet to avoid bill shocks on their international trips.
Consider answering a few questions before your international trips to help you select an international roaming plan:
How many countries will you be visiting?
Check your itinerary to assess if you need international roaming for one or multiple countries. This way, you can choose a country-specific SIM card or one with roaming option in multiple countries.
How long is your trip for?
Select an international roaming plan for the number of days based on your travel duration. Vi provides IR plans valid for a day, a week, or a month, so you can choose a plan that works best for you.
What will be your requirements while traveling internationally?
Evaluate your needs based on the number of outgoing/incoming calls you might make, or the data required on your international travels. With this you can pick a plan tailored to your specific needs.
Once you know all your requirements, head to the international roaming page via the Vi website or App and select a suitable plan before your foreign travels.
