Scoot is currently running a very interesting promotion where if you purchase your flights on Scoot, you’ll be eligible for a Flexiroam SIM sticker with 100MB of data access loaded inside. You can find out more details of this promotion here.
How it works is you’ll receive a “sticker” from Flexiroam which you affix to your SIM card which you currently have in your phone that’s given by your local telco. Then, when you’re overseas, open the Flexiroam app where you’ll be able to select the respective plans available for that country and you’ll be data roaming without incurring the fees from your Telco.
As always, do your homework before flying off! Aaron has written an article recently about the various data roaming options that are available for us here in Singapore. Personally, I prefer to just purchase a SIM card in the country that I’m heading to as it’s just so much more convenient and sometimes it might be cheaper too.
Free 100MB Data with Flexiroam x Scoot
Going back to the promotion, if you purchase your flight tickets on the Scoot website, you’ll receive a promo code in your confirmation email which you can then use to redeem for yourself a Flexiroam Starter Pack bundled with 100MB of data for use when you’re roaming. Just remember to download the Flexiroam app else it won’t work when you’re overseas.
While 100MB isn’t a lot of data especially if you’re the type who browses Instagram often (i.e myself), it’s sufficient to keep you connected to your various messaging apps and useful for searching up for places of interest in the country you’re at.
