Orange, in partnership with Nashua Mobile, is now offering services for those traveling to the United Kingdom and the Ivory Coast.
This follows a previous announcement in June 2013, in which Orange launched a
partnership with Nashua Mobile to offer such services for travellers to and from Botswana and France, and the establishment of Orange corners within select Nashua Mobile stores.
Sébastien Crozier, CEO of Orange Horizons said: “It is important for travellers to be able to communicate with friends, family and business associates while travelling; however, the high costs associated with global roaming call and data services puts a damper on the joy and excitement of travelling.
“Orange offers travelers the option to do so at local rates, therefore avoiding the high roaming costs associated with traveling abroad. We make it even easier by offering them locally, so customers can purchase the products before going to their destination so that they know the number that will be in use.”
Nashua Mobile CEO Mark Taylor said: “The Orange UK products will enable our customers to save time and money when they visit one of the most popular international tourism and business destinations for South Africans.”
United Kingdom Products
Orange is offering South African travelers an Orange UK SIM card, already loaded with either £10 or £30 credit. Once you have loaded the SIM card into a phone, you will then need to choose the best prepaid plan depending on their needs while abroad.
The £10 credit SIM card is priced at R200 plus a R40 transaction fee ; the £30 credit SIM card is available for R550plus a R110 transaction fee.
Côte d’Ivoire Products
For travelers going to Côte d’Ivoire, a prepaid SIM card is available at R11 plus a R5 transaction fee.
This SIM card will be pre-loaded with 500F. “This is called Formule Seconde. It is a special offer for those who make short duration calls and wish to be charged for the exact time they spend on the phone during calls,” Crozier said.
Also available is a 5000F scratch card, at R110 plus a R25 transaction fee (it
includes 10% bonus credit).
Orange is positioned in selected Nashua Mobile stores: the Sandton City Mall in Johannesburg, Brooklyn Mall in Pretoria, both Icon Centre and Canal Walk in Cape Town.
