Introducing the new SIM travel hack

When you’re travelling, there are more moments than ever to share across social media, so it doesn’t make sense to only have access to Wi-Fi when you’re at your hotel or in a random café. You need to be able to Snapchat palms trees, tropical cocktails and summer adventures to your hearts content. That’s why I’m super excited to introduce this travel hack by Flexiroam X, because it lets you access data overseas using your own SIM card without the fear of crazy data roaming fees.

Flexiroam X is a thin microchip embedded film that you stick on your SIM card, which enables you to stay connected in over 100 exotic locations across the globe, and allows you to use your phone exactly the same way you use it at home.

I’m not a big fan of using local prepaid SIMs while I’m away because I still want to use my phone number. Flexiroam X lets you access your pre-paid data allowance, with the ability to toggle back to your original Telco service if you need to use your phone for calls or SMS.

Once you’re a member you’ll have the ability to share the Flexiroam X app with your buddies to earn up to 100GB of free data. If a mate you’ve referred subscribes to a Flexiroam X membership, you’ll both earn 100MB of global roaming data. Then, when you’re overseas you can top it up easily with 1GB data packs for $US29.99.

To get started, simply download the Flexiroam X app through the iOS App Store and Google Play store. Then order the $US9.99 starter pack (which contains the microchip and applicator) via the Flexiroam X app. If you’re in Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan or Thailand, your starter pack will be delivered to your doorstep in three to five business days for a flat rate of $US5.
