Mobile device cuts call costs on ski slopes

The Ski Club of Great Britain is joining forces with SIM4Travel to provide a low cost solution to significantly cut mobile phone costs whilst skiing abroad.
Betony Garner from the Ski Club of Great Britain said “Groups that involve skiers or snowboarders of varying standards in skill often split into sub-groups to ensure each skill is catered for safely. This might mean that the entire group only meets up for a drink and a bite to eat or right at the end of a days skiing. Their mobile phones become a vital means of communication to make these arrangements.”

Suk Grewal from SIM4travel said “Calling a friend on their mobile in the same ski resort is the same as calling back to the UK. The caller and the receiver are charged a premium for the call - its double trouble!”

By teaming up with SIM4travel, The Ski Club of Great Britain is offering a
solution to the high costs of mobile phone roaming. SIM4travel is an international service that lets the user avoid expensive roaming charges.
