As good piece of news for travellers to any of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, etisalat announced that it has reduced its GCC roaming tariffs.
Etisalat's prepaid and postpaid customers will now pay up to 26 per cent less on outgoing voice calls when travelling to any GCC country, namely, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar or Saudi Arabia.
Commenting on the reduction, Matthew Willsher, Chief Marketing Officer at etisalat, said: "Etisalat is committed to offering customers best-in-value mobile services, whether they're in the country or travelling abroad. Our customers have been benefitting from reduced roaming prices since 2010 when we introduced up to 48 per cent discount on GCC roaming rates. These further tariff reductions spell huge benefits for holidaymakers and business visitors from the UAE to any GCC country."
Customers need not subscribe for the new roaming prices before travelling. The new tariff will be applied on default when the customer travels to any GCC country and makes a voice call using any GCC roaming partner network.
Etisalat's roaming offers provide customers with attractive roaming plans on the region's widest roaming network partnership with nearly 650 networks for voice, across 190 countries globally.
