Though Global travel SIM cards and data card solutions have fast become a staple for Indians travelling abroad for both business and pleasure, finding quality global roaming services and solutions is still hard. There are too few companies that offer these global roaming services, and only a couple out of them offer good quality. Adding to the woes is the fact that most people are still ignorant of even the existence of global roaming data card and global travel SIM card solutions. So basically, if you are looking for global roaming solutions without any prior idea about them, expect to find a lot of dead ends. That can be remedied by knowing a few key features to look for, and top 4 are listed below:
Maximum global coverage
The first thing to look for in a global travel SIM or data card is the reception and coverage it can get. Global travel SIM, as the name suggests, is primarily designed to be used all over the globe so it should get glitz-free coverage in as many countries as it can. The number of countries should ideally be something close to or more than 225. Something like that number should help you rest assured that you’ll be connected through your phone wherever on the planet you are at.
Low cost outgoing and data charges
Low cost outgoing and data bills are a must. There are global travel SIM cards from certain Indian service providers that allow subscribers to save up to 80% in savings. Compared to your own local Indian SIM card, the charges on the outgoing should be considerably lower for the solution to be any good. Same with the global data card, the charges for downloaded and transferred online data should be low.
Charges for incoming while on international roaming is one of the main culprits that can lead to huge amounts in bills with your own local SIM card. Any good global travel SIM card should support free incoming in at least 75 countries worldwide.
Easy call details and recharge
You should be able to recharge and access your call details easily online. This will help you keep a tab on your expenses and refill your call credit easily if you ever run out of balance anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Call details should help you clarify things if you feel you are being overcharged.
So those were the top 4 things to look for in a global travel SIM card and data card solution. Looking for them should help you avoid dead ends in your search.
