International Roaming on a casual plan ?

Hi,

If a Telstra Support Team member sees this, can you please tell me when Telstra will release their new casual mobile phone plans that include international roaming ?

It was supposed to be mid year, but I'd like to know if that may be June or July please ?

Thank you.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Is this for prepaid? When the international access was removed, a general comment of mid 2021 was made fro 'possible' reinstatement. I am not aware of any verifiable update to that..

Not with Telstra, just another customer like you!

Thanks SteveW, yes for pre paid. I'm going overseas soon and don't want to pay $55.00 for a plan just to be able to receive an occasional code by SMS from my bank.

Hi @AliQ,

 

I asked a Pre-Paid consultant 2 day's ago while speaking on the phone regarding something else, when is International Roaming going to be available again for Pre-Paid customer's?

The reply was "we haven't received a memo yet, so we don't know when it will be available".

I am NOT a Telstra employee and never have been. However, I AM a customer who volunteer's my time in the hope to help someone with their question.

Thanks Smiley3. That does not sound very positive, obviously no new plans are being released soon then. After numerous years with Telstra, think it's time to look elsewhere.

Given that Telstra have not released their new International Roaming for prepaid plans, consider looking at what Vodafone have to offer. They have prepaid that last 180 or 365 days.

Thanks Dowser, I'll have a look.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
