The world changed since the Internet came and it affected everything, especially traveling. With most Filipinos subscribed to local networks that only provide services within the country, updating and posting on social media accounts have been a pain when outside the country. Fortunately, Smart is about to change the travel game with their latest app.
“Staying online while traveling abroad makes for a hassle-free travel experience, but unfortunately, many travelers still choose to go offline out of fear of racking up enormous data roaming charges,” said PLDT Global Corp. President and CEO Kat Luna-Abelarde.
Its main goal is to provide its users with vital information that are needed for their travel, which includes flight schedules, hotel accommodations and reservations, information regarding their destinations, and many more. With the help of Smart RoamFree app, travelers will have an easier and much pleasurable stay during their travel.
RoamFree allows users to access 21 different partner sites outside the country, even those without any data package. Essential traveling apps and sites like Google Maps, Airbnb, TripAdvisor, FoodPanda, Klook, Google Translate, ATM Finder, and XE Currency converter are all accessible through the app without the need to spend any money.
Smart RoamFree is available different places worldwide like the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Greece, Finland, Ireland, Portugal, Romania, Malta, United Arab Emirates and many more. Of course, it is also accessible in Asian countries like China, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Cambodia.
The Smart RoamFree app is part of Smart’s service expansion, focused on subscribers that are out of the country. Improving the nationwide network for the best mobile experience is part of the company’s plan, according to Chief Revenue Officer (PLDT and Smart) Eric R. Alberto.
It is free for download for both Apple (App Store) and Android users (Play Store) and is very easy to use. If there is a need for more data, Smart also offers a variety of choices like GIGAROAM (1GB/7 days) for Php999, Surf Abroad for Php550/day, Chat Abroad for Php150/day for messaging apps. Smart’s Data Roam Manager allows users to add data roaming packs and check their data usage.
Thanks to Smart RoamFree app, travelers can easily post stories, update their feeds, and show to their friends the great time they are having without any hassle.
