Daily Data Limits

What are daily data limits?

Daily Data Limits is the easy option to control your data roaming spend.  We give you an added layer of confidence and control over your data by allowing you to set a maximum limit for how much credit you wish  to use on data each day.  If you plan on accessing the internet from your mobile phone or tablet while travelling overseas, you will need to set  a Daily Data Limit..

Why would I need one?

Our Daily Data Limits give you what you want when you go online.

You select your maximum daily data spend and we take care of the rest. There’s no need to worry about coming home to a hefty data roaming bill and it gives you complete control over your data spend. Plus, we give you the flexibility to reset your daily limit at any time.

How does it work?

  1. Activate your TravelSIM
  2. Enable data online
  3. Set your daily data limit (choose from $10, $25, $50 or $100)
  4. Turn Data Roaming ON in your phone
  5. Enjoy added control over your data spend!

Please note that once you turn Data Roaming ON, data is turned on and you will be able to use data. We recommend turning Data Roaming OFF when you are not using data.

What does it cost?

It’s FREE to setup! Once you’ve set your daily data limit, you’ll only be charged for the data that you use.

Data rates vary by country and sometimes by network within countries.  To determine the cost of data in each country please visit our rates page.  If you are visiting a country where multiple rates exist, just select your preferred network.

What if I need more data when I reach my daily limit?

You can reset your daily data limit at any time directly from your mobile phone, meaning you can easily increase or decrease your daily limit as you wish.

How do I know how much I've used?

Daily data limits are based on a 24 hour period once enabled. You can easily check your data usage and remaining daily data limit by dialling *146*502# from your mobile phone.

We also sent you an notification letting you know you have reached 80% and 100% of your usage.

How do I enable daily data limits?

Simply login to your online account to enable your daily data limits.

Data rates and availability may vary by network, so it’s best to check before you go. Click here for our most up to date rates and coverage list.
