Globe Boosts Growth of PH Outbound Travels With Support To Country’s Biggest Travel Expo
As official telco partner to the 23rd Travel Tour Expo, Globe complements the international travel experience with its hassle-free and true 24 hour unlimited data roaming offer Roam Surf
Globe Telecom is looking to support the growing number of Filipinos travelling abroad either for business or leisure purposes with its partnership with the Philippine Travel Agencies Association (PTAA) for the 23rd Travel Tour Expo, with Globe as official telecom partner. Globe will be showcasing its flagship data roaming service Roam Surf which offers full 24 hours of unlimited data roaming service that enables worry-free internet connectivity from over 80 countries around the world for its postpaid and prepaid customers.
According to the United Nations World Travel Organization (UNWTO), Filipinos have been identified as one of the fastest-growing travel spenders among emerging markets in 2013, with the country’s outbound expenditure growing by 18 percent, second highest in the list of top travel spenders following Turkey, which registered a 24 percent growth.
Organized by the Philippine Travel Agencies Association, Inc. (PTTA) in cooperation with the Department of Tourism and the Tourism Promotions Board, the Expo is the biggest event for the travel and tourism industry and is expected to gather over 300 exhibitors targeting travel and tourism trade practitioners, corporate and business travelers, holiday travelers, incentive and convention planners, government and business leaders, as well as direct buyers and investors. It will be held on February 5-7, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Founded in 1979 with an aim to foster unity in the travel industry and promote the welfare of its members and the traveling public, the PTTA is a group of outbound travel agencies and inbound tour operators. For this year’s installment of the Travel and Tour Expo, the public can also expect games, entertainment, raffle activities and presentations from participation exhibitors and sponsors aside from great travel deals and offers.
“We are off to a great start this 2016 with our partnership with the PTAA. With our shared vision of providing the best and most convenient travel experience to the growing Filipino travel population, PTAA and Globe will come together to not only house the most hassle-free and value-for-money travel deals but to ensure that Filipino consumers understand that their trips can be made even more wonderful with our banner roaming product Roam Surf,” says Coco Domingo, Vice President for Roaming and International Business at Globe.
Domingo adds, “Roam Surf is the perfect data roaming service for Filipino travelers who want to enjoy the digital life they are accustomed to once they travel abroad. Roam Surf provides true 24 hours of unlimited data while roaming and eliminates the worry of bill shock because of its flat rate of only P599 per day. With Roam Surf, users can surf, post updates on their social networks, use their apps, share files, and even stream music and videos to complete the travel experience. Roam Surf also comes with a free 30-day travel insurance coverage for a worry-free travel that only Globe can give.”
With Globe RoamSurf, Filipino travelers abroad have access to full 24-hour data roaming service for only P599 per day. This means that data roaming connectivity does not end at 11:59pm. Roam Surf also allows customers to enjoy a complete browsing experience with no limitation or usage restriction, allowing users to do music and video streaming, as well as file sharing with no additional cost.
Subscription to Roam Surf is simple. Postpaid customers simply need to turn their data roaming on their mobile while prepaid customers can subscribe either while in the Philippines or already at the country of destination by dialing *143# toll-free.
To supplement the worry-free travel experience, Roam Surf customers will also get access to free travel insurance coverage to protect them from travel-related incidents such as lost luggage, damaged mobile devices, terminated or delayed flights, and other travel inconveniences.
