Woolies adds more roaming choices for UK jet setters

By Staff writers | 4:32 pm 09/05/2013

If you’re planning a trip to the United Kingdom soon, you’re probably already aware just how expensive mobile calls and data can be, and if you’re not yet, you will soon. Good thing then that Woolworths has chimed in with a new plan to help reduce roaming costs.

Woolworths Mobile Global Roaming has been doing some work to services it launched last year, with the addition of a new offering, the “UK Lite Double Bundle.”

This one throws in 200MB data, 400 minutes of phone calls, and 600 texts for travellers on their way to the UK, with the prepaid plan available for $34.

The Woolies Mobile plans are available in both the regular miniSIM and now-normal microSIM formats, though we haven’t yet seen a nanoSIM offering from the company, which could be a problem for iPhone 5 and iPad Mini customers.

We’re not sure how long the plan will stick around though, as representatives for the company say it’s a limited time offer that ends on July 31.
