For travel-preneurs like me, going abroad is an endless cycle of packing, errand checking and counting down every minute to ensure that all emails are cleared, work at home is settled and photographs are synced to the cloud. Before the plane sets off, I am always hurrying off to find a pin to change my SIM to the country of where I am travelling to. (Yes I'm guilty of carrying an iPhone pin and a box full of SIM cards of countries I frequent!) Due to the nature of my job, it is crucial that I am connected to the net.
When I first heard of Interfone and its amazing convenient SIM sticker technology, I was intrigued and needed to test it out myself! For something as tiny, portable, hassle-free and easy to use, I had tested it out for my trip to Hong Kong. With a one time application and global coverage in almost 100 countries, this meant endless connection wherever I'm at.
All you've got to do is log onto www.interfone.com to purchase your SIM card and credit package, and attach it to the back of your original SIM. Then, download Interfone's app (My Interfone App) online with a beautiful and easy interface and simply tap the 'Away' mode just before the plane flies off. My favourite part is that upon touching down in Hong Kong, I am one of the first to receive my texts and emails! Just like the locals, I'm able to patiently scroll through social media, check through important notifications and arrange meetings while waiting for everyone to depart from the plane! I'm still constantly amused by this with every country I travel to. Interfone's prices start from just $10, via their credit packages which start from $30.
With this, I'm able to keep my number for incoming and outgoing calls while making voice and data calls. Data roaming is at its most convenient, efficient and fastest. With prices starting from just S$30, it is affordable for the business traveller and wanderluster. Services are high quality and cost effective, that also means touching base with my team while I'm away too.
Share your travel images with your loved ones, stay connected on social media, use your favourite apps such as Instagram and Spotify. Keep fit while abroad by using fitness apps like my favourites, Runkeeper, Nike Running and Fitbit without having to worry about broken connections!
