5 tips for travelling connected in New Zealand
1. Know what you need data for
Travellers are needing data more than ever! Whether you need to use Google Maps, check your email or contact friends and family, knowing what you want for your travels is essential to making the right decision.
2. Ditch data roaming
Don’t get stung by data roaming! Roaming fees add up quickly and can leave you with a nasty bill. Prepaid options are the best for keeping your telco costs down.
3. Don’t overpay for data
Travellers are needing more and more data for their travels overseas, so finding affordable rates can go a long way. You should not be paying more than $5 per GB of data.
4. Coverage for all your travel needs
Having strong coverage wherever you go can make life much easier. Prepaid SIM cards that operate on local networks (not global) are far superior in reliability and country-wide coverage.
5. Organise yourself before you fly
Hit the ground running. You’re going to be jet lagged so having your SIM card organised before you fly can save you a big hassle when you land.

Worked like a charm
We got two sims before our travel to Queenstown and had no issues whatsoever with either of them. The connectivity was perfect in and around cities /towns. I highly recommend Simsdirect.

Having the Sim Card before leaving home was brilliant! We travelled for 3 weeks across both Islands so good phone communication and internet access were an essential component for a safe and successful trip.

If you are visiting NZ, you must have this sim with 10 GB data. It was easy to use and helped my family and I keep incontact the entire trip.
