Travel packages for travel outside Thailand (with thai sim)


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the 'travel packages' for thai sims, when you travel outside Thailand. I have found these on the true website, but others might have them as well.

In July I'm planning a couple of months in SEA, starting and ending in Thailand. In between I'm going the countries in the vicinity (Laos, Malaysia, Cambodja, Singapore etc).

If I understand it correctly, these packages give you a certain amount of data and minutes for all the countries. It would mean that you can keep your thai number and no need to get a new sim in every place.

So does this work? Is there a way to buy more GB while abroad without setting up some kind of account (normally I buy all packages and extras cash in a True store)?

I am also looking into the ex-Thailand package, as I already booked my ticket BKK - CGK for next month. I was in the True office today and they believe that I need to buy the package before leaving Thailand (obvious). I will be return to that office in a few days. Perhaps I can just buy the package at that time, or maybe they will show how to buy online.

I returned to True (Central Festival) to pick up my phone. As for the travel sim, the price is 899 thb. The label says 8GB, but they told me it is actually 10GB. With the language issue, I did not feel like asking why the different amount. In any case, they suggest waiting until the day before travel, because Sim becomes active once you put in phone, but that did not make sense either. Why not buy it today, and then put it in phone before I get on flight at Suvarnabhumi? They also mentioned that I can buy at BKK. 
 

I’m just going for 3 days in Indonesia, so this plan will work for me. For travel to several countries over two months, I would still consider buying this international sim, but also buy a limited data sim for each country after arriving and top up as needed.

899 seems very steep, that seems to be for world coverage. A card for just Asia should only be 399 for the same...and the website indicates it can be less if you add it to your normal true sim, instead of buying a separate travel sim. I can imagine it is tough to work that out if there is a language barrier.

Thanks FKO, I am going to be in Bangkok this week for a few days, and will have some time to visit a True office to get a better understanding of the True travel sim package from someone that has more than basic English skills (my Thai is terrible, so need help with that as well).

I have a pre-paid sim from AIS, I got it about a year ago, if I remember correctly at the mall. AIS has an app where you can top up your account and purchase new packages. I use a data-only package and whatever few phone calls I make (most Thais call each other on LINE anyway) I use the balance in my account, a phone call is usually about 10 baht or so.  

On the app you can also buy roaming packages, I used ones for Korea and Japan. I got data only. I believe it was 400 baht for two weeks if I remember correctly. 

Pleasure is the only thing one should live for.

Just a quick update. On the departures level of Suvarnabhumi, you can buy these true sim cards in their kiosks. Paid 399 for 10 days of plenty gb. Have used it in Cambodia, Singapore and Malaysia. Also some deal that gives you a bunch of GB for Thailand for a month, so I won't need to top up once I get back for my last 10 days in Thailand before I return back home.

Sorry I don't remember the exact amounts of gb, but I rarely use more than 2 a month and these numbers are always much higher.

If you're thinking about traveling outside of Thailand, there are tons of options that can make your trip a breeze. Have you checked out Simify? They offer some great packages that can take the headache out of planning. I’ve used them a couple of times, and they really simplify things. Whether you’re looking for a chill beach getaway, an adventure in the mountains, or a city escape, they've got something for everyone. I’ve found that going with a package deal often saves money and hassle. Plus, everything is pretty much sorted out for you – flights, hotels, and sometimes even tours. It's like having a local friend plan everything out for you. If you're worried about language barriers or getting lost, these packages usually include guides or support, which is super helpful. For instance, last year, I booked a package to Japan through Simify. It was my first time there, and I had no clue about anything, but they made it so easy. All I had to do was show up and enjoy! They took care of the accommodations, transport, and even some cool local experiences that I wouldn't have known about otherwise.
