5 tips to get the most from your Urworld SIM

1. Share your holiday in real time

No more waiting until you get back to the hotel at the end of a long day to share your vacay snaps. Make your friends comment #holidaygoals while you shop til you drop or Insta Story that unreal sunset as it happens over the city of your dreams. Urworld means you’re connected while on the move.

2. Skip the train and Uber

Sure public transport is cheap, but it’s also hot, sweaty, hard to navigate and sometimes hard to find when you’re new to a city. When you’re connected outside of your hotel room on a Urworld SIM, you can order an Uber for your tired travel-weary feet to your next destination right from where you stand.

3. Eat like a local

The best part about travelling is finding hidden gems to enjoy an authentic treat outside of the obvious tourist traps. Use your data connection to trawl Instagram by searching for foodie hashtags in the city or town you’re visiting to see where the locals are eating Instagram worthy meals.

4. Don’t get lost

It can be fun getting lost in a new place and discovering something new, but when time is limited and that museum you really want to visit is closing in an hour, Google Maps is your best friend! Choose the walking mode and get back on the right track fast!

5. Call home

With a data connection, you call home on Skype or Whatsapp without spending loads on international call rates. VoIP calls can be even cheaper if you use the Urworld app or Blab Box on iPhone or Android.

With no hidden costs, no contracts and a lifetime of use in multiple countries, this hassle-free SIM is the only one you’ll need for all your future adventures.
