Travel companies launching own-brand holiday SIM cards
As summer holiday sales continue to drop due to the UK’s summer sunshine, struggling UK travel companies are being forced to greatly improve holiday deals
TravelSim, the originators of the travel SIM card and now with 3.5 million customers worldwide, is urging UK travel companies to improve deals by launching their own brand holiday SIM card that will save holidaymakers hundreds of pounds on data roaming charges.
As the UK’s heat wave continues travel agents are beginning to feel the pinch, with sales on last-minute summer holidays dropping by more than 20% in the last few weeks. Instead of venturing abroad, sun chasing Brits are choosing to keep their cash and stay at home meaning travel companies have to work doubly hard to try and entice them on to the plane.
TravelSim is now giving UK travel companies the opportunity to launch their own brand holiday SIM cards in a white label scheme. By adding this service to their holiday packages, travel companies are in a win-win situation. On the one hand, customers are provided a convenient and low cost mobile roaming solution before arriving at their chosen destination. On the other, travel companies enhance their brand and generate new revenue streams.
Sounds too good to be true? By partnering with TravelSim, travel companies, airlines, car hire firms, hotel chains, insurance and travel publications could have their own label SIM by August — in a couple of weeks.
This white label distributor opportunity gives companies the chance to launch their own unique travel SIM card under its company name. Distributors simply earn revenue through commission sales of the SIM card and subsequent user airtime top-ups.
