20 Reasons Why You Should Get Trabug

Let’s get into this right away!

1. Save on International Roaming Charges

what is roaming

While traveling to India, you will want to stay in touch with your family and friends back home. You might also want to contact fellow travelers whom you met along the way or reach out to any local services. Using the international roaming services of your mobile provider can prove to be quite expensive as International data roaming charges or global roaming charges are incurred because your network operator has a tie up with other network operators that give you services on their behalf and hence the cost extra.
Trabug is a great solution for foreigners, especially for people from USA, UK who are travelling to India and have high internet roaming charges because of using phone overseas while travelling.

For the people in USA, we elaborate more on this in our article ‘How to avoid International Data Roaming Charges outside of the USA?

And know more about it here: Trabug helps you save more than 70% on international roaming.

2. Get an Android Mobile Phone

While you are travelling to India, there is a high possibility that your mobile will not work in India due to the bandwidth compatibility issue. To stay connected, you may have to buy a new, compatible mobile phone or even pay mobile charges abroad. Trabug plugs this gap by renting a compatible smartphone to you, the cost of which is bundled with your service plan. No separate or hidden costs in using mobile overseas. We have replaced the native smartphone interface with our super-easy interface for your convenience.

3. Or a Pocket Wifi Hotspot Device

This is a small convenient portable wifi modem in a pocket sized device that you can rent on per day basis for overseas data. The device gives you access to high speed internet (4G) and lets you connect upto 10 devices at cheap data roaming prices. It is handy and lasts upto 6 hours after 1 full charge while roaming abroad. It can be charged again using a regular USB android cord. This pocket wifi router comes with a companion app.

4. Get a 4G SIM Card

A Review from a happy customer

“We had a wonderful experience with Trabug. The customer service was a minimum 5 stars as we received immediate replies to our questions and tech support if there was a problem - which was mostly user error on my part. Trabug saved us the hassle and inconvenience of trying to obtain a sim card on our own, the phone was waiting for us when we checked into our hotel, and better yet - we were able to work whenever we needed to. We would use them again if we return to India and I would highly recommend Trabug.”
