Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - Lifestyle - Al­wyn Coelho

All of us crave for a peace­ful vacation with­out the con­stant ring­ing and email alerts. While we hope to stay “off the grid” as much as pos­si­ble, if we’re run­ning a small business or tak­ing an ex­tended trip, it’s of­ten nec­es­sary to have daily ac­cess to email, not to men­tion so­cial shar­ing sites like Twit­ter and Face­book. In to­day’s world it is practically im­pos­si­ble to stay iso­lated - one al­ways needs to be in touch with loved ones, there would al­ways be that one call from of­fice no mat­ter how well you have pre­pared to avoid of­fice calls dur­ing the vacation and be­sides who doesn’t like to go live or show off their pho­tos on so­cial me­dia to the world. With to­day’s “in the mo­ment” gen­er­a­tion, wait­ing or search­ing for public wifi spot is not al­ways fea­si­ble. And yet there’s no faster way to lose your post-vacation glow than to get a shud­der-in­duc­ing phone bill. Hence hav­ing a worry free, un­lim­ited in­ter­na­tional roam­ing propo­si­tion is paramount.

To make life eas­ier for all the trav­el­ers seek­ing wan­der­lust, Voda­fone In­dia, one of In­dia’s lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vice providers has launched an Un­lim­ited In­ter­na­tional roam­ing plan, Voda­fone i-RoamFREE @ Rs.180/day for trav­el­ers across 18 coun­tries en­com­pass­ing UK, Europe amongst oth­ers. So whether one is on a business trip, or a leisure hol­i­day, in­ter­na­tional trav­el­ers can now eas­ily ac­ti­vate a pack and use their number over­seas from UK and other pop­u­lar travel des­ti­na­tions of Europe like Ger­many, Spain, Italy, Nether­lands, Turkey, Greece, Por­tu­gal, Czech Repub­lic, Ro­ma­nia, Hun­gary, Malta, & Al­ba­nia

Apart from Europe, trav­el­ers can also use un­lim­ited calls and data in USA, UAE, Sin­ga­pore & Malaysia with the same pack tak­ing the total tally of “Un­lim­ited” Coun­tries to 18.

Europe, USA, UAE, Sin­ga­pore & Malaysia com­prise more than 50% of our total roamers and in­ter­na­tional traf­fic.

Cus­tomers can freely up­load pho­tos & videos, look up places on maps, check emails and stay con­nected back home us­ing their Voda­fone number with­out wor­ry­ing about high in­ter­na­tional roam­ing bills They can re­main con­fi­dently con­nected on their ex­ist­ing Voda­fone number when they travel, and be as­sured the best of voice and data ser­vices.”
