HOW CAN I USE INTERNATIONAL ROAMING?
If you're looking to find our International Roaming packs, you can find information on how to purchase them, here.
By default roaming is disabled for your amaysim account, you can however enable it at any time through Settings in My amaysim.
While international roaming can be easy and convenient, it can also be expensive and we recommend grabbing a local SIM, or at least taking a quick look at our roaming rates for a breakdown of the costs prior to using your SIM card overseas.
Part of planning an overseas trip is figuring out how you can use your phone–whether you want to keep your loved ones updated, or need a hand deciphering the local public transport system. Thankfully these days, there are more options than the sky-high international roaming rates of old. Adding our International Roaming Packs to your plan will give you the ability to stay on top of your usage, without your wallet taking too much of a hit. With four different International Roaming Packs to choose from, each with their own mix of inclusions of standard calls, texts and data, you’ll be able to find the right fit for you. Plus, you can track how far through your inclusions you are in the amaysim app. While our International Roaming Packs are available in most popular Selected Destinations around the world, it’s also a good idea to check that your destination is included in over 90 Selected Destinations we cover.
Keep in mind: inclusions, including banked data from your normal amaysim mobile plan, long expiry prepaid plan or data-only plan can’t be used for data roaming.
First thing’s first, you’ll need to add the International Roaming Pack to your existing plan by buying an International Roaming pack in the amaysim app. Then, switch on international roaming in your app and device settings before you leave Australia. And that’s it! You’re ready to go.
