A solution by RoamingExpert
RoamingExpert, a company with more than 15 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, has offered a simple solution for the above issues: a tariff for crew members which covers them in multiple European countries.
The 30-day rolling contract runs at £37.50 per month (inc UK VAT) and includes unlimited calls and texts between European countries, as well as 10GB of data. Calls to countries outside Europe cost 30p per minute.
The unlimited calls and text can be used in any of the inclusive countries meaning crew members do not have to change between SIM cards or pay excessive fees when roaming abroad and can maintain just one contact number.
Importantly, RoamingExpert does not have a fair use policy. Users are simply alerted by email when they have reached half of their data allowance. The user then has the option to have their data capped or add an additional bundle to cover usage for the rest of the month.
RoamingExpert have made their tariff easily accessible to crew with a simple online sign up via their website (www.roamingexpert.yachts/crew-tariffs). A SIM card and welcome pack are then delivered within 24-48 hours.
