How can I recharge my Pre-Paid service while travelling overseas?
It’s a good idea to recharge before you take off. If you need to recharge while overseas, there are a few options available, depending on whether you’re roaming or using free Wi-Fi.
Firstly, it's important to make sure you can roam. Check the Itinerary Builder to make sure roaming is available at your destination and see the charges.
These tools are free to use where you can roam:
If you can connect to free Wi-Fi on your smart phone, use your Telstra 24x7 App (make sure you login with your My Account details) to check your balance and recharge whilst overseas.
If you don’t have access to free Wi-Fi, the following methods will incur charges when used overseas:
You can also ask a friend or family member in Australia to recharge for you using your mobile service number – visit telstra.com/card
