The cost of buying 3 SIM Cards for a 2 week trip when you landed in USA this summer would be $120-150. Also there is an added hassle of remaining disconnected for a period of a few hours before procuring a SIM and one may anyway end up spending an additional Rs.500-1000 on international roaming per SIM to make/receive just a few calls during this period. Also activating international roaming plans for such a trip for a family would cost Rs.12000-15000, with lesser inclusions. Also, cab booking app services are harder to use on international roaming since the driver may not call the Indian number and lastly any local business contacts also may not like to call an international number to get connected with the user.
So with the summer holidays round the corner, a fabulous vacation with the family and friends abroad is the best way to celebrate. And now with the new summer prepaid plans from Matrix, now it is easy to stay connected with your people back home, that too, in a cost effective way.
