Smart intros RoamFree app for travelers
Smart has introduced a new app called RoamFree lets you connect to your favorite travel services without data roaming charges.
The Smart RoamFree app is designed as a one-stop portal which gives you access to 21 partner apps at your destination, even if you haven’t subscribed to a roaming data package: Uber, AirBNB, Agoda, Booking, Google Maps, PassnFly, Musement, TripAdvisor, Triip, Meetup.com, Klook, Tiqets, Foodpanda, OpenTable, TheFork, Groupon, KeyFlow, Viator, Google Translate, XE Currency Converter, and ATM Finder.
The app is now available for use in 26 destinations, including the United States, Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, and United Kingdom. It is also accessible for free in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Albania, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Malta, Portugal, Romania, and the United Arab Emirates.
“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. The RoamFree app addresses this by allowing you to freely connect to relevant content and services that make for a travel experience like never before,” said Kat Luna-Abelarde, PLDT Global Corp. President and CEO.
