By Teltech ICT

Are you planning an overseas trip in the near future? Does the thought of coming home to a hefty phone bill concern you? Well look no further than this article, as we are excited to announce a new offer available to Telstra customers.

For a one-off pre-paid charge, Telstra customers are now being given the opportunity to obtain an International Travel Pass to manage their calls, SMS and data usage whilst travelling overseas. The pass activates automatically at the time of purchase and gives customers the choice of 3, 7, 14 or 30 consecutive days of travel pass service.

The pass is available in two varieties that can be used at a number of popular holiday destinations. Both types include unlimited calls and SMS to and from standard numbers, that being fixed lines and mobile phones.
