Get a New Zealand Travel SIM Card from SIMCorner

New Zealand may be Australia's closest neighbour, but that doesn't mean you can take a trip there without thinking about many of the challenges and complications of foreign travel. In particular, if you plan on making a pilgrimage to NZ, you are going to need to consider whether or not you plan on using your phone while there. It may be close in proximity, but New Zealand doesn't have the same mobile network coverage that Australia does, and chances are, if you try to make calls, send texts or use data while taking a trip there, you are going to face some pretty hefty roaming charges.

Fortunately, there's an easy way to avoid such charges—so long as you remember to plan ahead. At SIMCorner, we sell a range of SIM cards for international travel. These alternative SIM cards let tourists and business travellers link up with local mobile networks wherever they are travelling—which in turn avoids roaming charges. Best of all, every international travel SIM card available at SIMCorner is prepaid, and most include data, text and talk. And since we have convenient online ordering and home delivery, preparing your phone for international use has really never been easier.

Sim Card Options for New Zealand

If your destination is New Zealand, then SIMCorner has a pair of different SIM card options for NZ.

The first New Zealand SIM card available at SIMCorner is the standard NZ travel SIM. For $40, this SIM card offers four gigabytes of data, 120 free call minutes, 200 free texts and no incoming call charges—regardless of which country the call may be coming from. The free calls and texts are valid within New Zealand, as well as back to Australia and to several other countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom and more.

If you plan on making phone calls or sending texts at all, this is the SIM card you are going to want for your New Zealand trip. Even though the call and text numbers aren't that high, they will suffice for giving family and friends updates on your whereabouts or calling for help in the case of emergencies. You can also add minutes, texts and data online, by using a credit card. The 120 minutes/200 text numbers are merely what you get with the prepaid NZ SIM card plan from SIMCorner.

The second of SIMCorner's travel SIM cards for New Zealand is a data-only option. For $29.00, you can get 1.5 gigabyte of data for your phone. The SIM card, which links with Vodafone NZ, will provide 4G speeds for web surfing, email, app usage, GPS maps, social media and more. There is no calling or texting available with this plan, but since you can communicate with loved ones over the internet, you don't necessarily need talk and text.
