Do you travel abroad often? Do you often forget to activate international roaming packs? If you do, Airtel has launched a bunch of new features for its postpaid and prepaid users that are aimed at simplifying the overall experience of the users as they travel to foreign countries.
These new features not only enable users to track their international roaming pack usage in real time but they also allow them to pre-book an international roaming pack 30 days prior to their actual date of travel. What’s more? The pre-booked IR pack kicks in only when a user connects to an international mobile network, which in turn ensures that they don’t incur additional costs as soon as the IR pack is activated. Notably, this feature was already available to the postpaid customers and now the company is rolling it out to its prepaid users.
In addition to these features, Airtel has introduced a new feature, which ensures that Airtel users are protected against any unwanted charges due to over-usage when their IR pack is exhausted. “Customers can take another pack or a top up, on the go through the Airtel Thanks app,” Airtel wrote in a press release.
Lastly, the telecom giant has also launched a bunch of new global packs for its prepaid and postpaid users:
