TOP FOUR ‘COMMS’ TIPS
WHETHER travelling to the other side of the world, or even just doing the weekly shopping, communication is so important. Here are some tips for your next journey:
MOST of us are so used to using mobile phones when away from home that we tend to forget that Australia still has some black holes in mobile service coverage. Investing in a two way radio could make the difference when travelling.
MANY of the major telcos talk about global roaming but they don’t warn about the excessive cost. Before leaving, ask about travel sim options.
CARAVAN parks, motels/hotels and visitor centres will frequently offer internet access via their network. Some are free services, others may charge a small time-based fee.
IF YOU do not have a computer, you can either use a town library, airport, or a telecentre where you can sit down at a booth and ‘rent’ the use of their computer and internet network.
