Jetstar Now Offering SIMs For Overseas Travel

Jetstar’s announced its very own SIM for travellers looking to keep their calling costs down as they gallivant between continents. As part of the launch, they’re offering the card for $19.25 (down from its $40.25 RRP), excluding $7 (?) for delivery.

The SIM itself is provided by Go-SIM, but as you can see from the picture above, it’s all Jetstar branding. I couldn’t find an end date for the launch offer, so if you’re keen you should check it out soon.

Here’s the list of features provided by the SIM:

  • Chat from 180 countries/territories
  • No charge for receiving unlimited incoming calls in over 70 countries
  • FREE to receive SMS/texts in all 180 countries
  • GPRS data available in over 135 countries/territories
  • No daily access charges or monthly fees
  • Calling, voice mail, SMS and data
  • Pre-paid and rechargeable – No contracts and no monthly or connection fees
  • Use in any unlocked GSM mobile handset
  • 24/7 customer support

The last two times I’ve been overseas, my roaming hasn’t worked despite harassing Vodafone for the privilege, so I know I’ll be looking to get a SIM like this next time I leave the country. If anyone’s had any experiences with Go-SIM, please leave a comment.

The link provided by Jetstar gave me a nasty red 404, so try the one below instead.
