Telstra hedges overseas roaming costs with travel passes

Roaming overseas is still pricey business.

Telstra introduced ‘international roaming travel passes’ yesterday which substitute expensive overseas roaming charges for one-time monthly add-ons.

A total of 40 countries are covered by the two travel pass packs. Each pack offers unlimited international calls and texts, along with data allowances starting from 150MB.

Zone 1 covers three countries with New Zealand, Thailand and Indonesia, and starts at $15 for three days.

Most countries fall under Zone 2, including Hong Kong, the US and the UK. A 3 day Zone 2 travel pass will cost $30 at these countries, while a 30 day pass will cost $300.

The packs came into effect on 9 December 2014. Check the table below for full pricing and inclusions.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
