Etisalat offers 2 new roaming packages
Abu Dhabi, July 1, 2010
Etisalat, the leading telecom service provider in the UAE, has launched two different roaming packages for customers traveling abroad for both its Wasel prepaid and postpaid GSM accounts.
Customers have the flexibility to avail of one or both packages together to suit their needs and their traveling destinations, and postpaid GSM customers can enable the roaming service package without deposit, a statement said.
For travelers to the Arab countries, the package offered at Dh100 ($27.22) comes with 100 minutes worth of voice and video calls and this includes all other taxes and operator charges. This package is valid for one month from the activation date.
In addition, incoming calls that exceed the 100 minutes bundle will be charged to customers at only Dh1, applicable for the entire duration of subscription.
Customers can subscribe to this package in UAE or from outside by sending ‘r arab100’ to 1010.
The special roaming package for customers traveling to any other country globally, gives them 100 minutes of incoming voice and video calls for a price of Dh200 that includes all taxes and operator charges.
The package is valid for one month from the date of activation. In addition, extra incoming calls received over and above the bundle of 100 minutes will be charged to customers at Dh1, applicable during the entire month of subscription.
Customers can subscribe to this package in the UAE or from outside by sending ‘r row 200’ to 1010.
Customers applying for both packages can renew their subscriptions as many times during the offer period until September 20, depending on their travel duration and requirements, the statement said.
In addition, travelers to Arab as well as other global destinations during the offer period, can subscribe to one or both packages together to avail the offer benefits.
In this case, each package, Arab as well as for rest of the world, will operate and switch automatically depending on the country the customers travels to, thereby giving them maximum value and savings.
Incoming SMS while roaming, as usual, is free for all Wasel prepaid and GSM post-paid customers, according to the statement.
“Summer vacations are around the corner and we realize that our customers may constantly need to stay in touch with friends or family back here in the UAE while they are on their trips abroad,” said Khalifa Al Shamsi, senior vice president of Etisalat.
“These packages are tailored to meet their needs and give them multiple and flexible ways to obtain more value and to save more too,” he added.
The package also features options such as checking the balance of incoming minutes and the convenience of receiving an SMS reminding customers of the package expiry date and asking for renewal. – TradeArabia News Service
