Home Telecoms & NBN Optus, TravelSIM launch customised mobile travel service

Optus and TravelSIM Australia have collaborated to launch gotravelsim, a mobile service designed specifically for international travellers and students in Australia.

At the launch on Tuesday, Optus and TravelSIM said the new mobile offering’s set-up, packages and support had been customised to deliver better service for international visitors to Australia.

“We recognise the needs of inbound travellers, especially for those working and travelling in remote areas. The partnership with Optus and gotravelsim is a great fit for both brands,” said TravelSIM Australia chief executive Jamien Zimmerman.

“(It) provides travellers with confidence that their service is backed by Optus network coverage from capital cities to rural and regional towns.

“Smartphones play an important role in our day-to-day activities and our great value plans are perfect for the modern, data-hungry travellers who are using their smart phones to communicate with loved ones all around the world.”


“Customers can simply purchase their gotravelsim while they are overseas, and have it delivered to their accommodation on their arrival.

“Even before their plane lands, travellers can simplify settling into Australia, by obtaining their local mobile number and sharing it with friends and family.”

Stuart Bird, managing director, Optus Wholesale and Satellite, said, “The partnership with TravelSIM Australia further represents Optus’ commitment to delivering unrivalled mobile solutions to suit Australian needs.


“The youth travel market in Australia presents a substantial market opportunity for both Optus and TravelSIM. With 2.2 million young travellers visiting our shores each year, gotravelsim offers an affordable and flexible mobile plan delivered over Optus’ award-winning mobile network.”

The new gotravelsim service offers both month-to-month and yearly voice and data plans.

And customers can purchase the gotravelsim mobile service via TravelSIM’s website or by calling their 24/7 Australia-based customer service team on 1300 417 015.
