Planning A Trip Away? Here's How To Keep Your Phone Connected At All Times.

Doesn’t it feel like a lifetime ago since 2017? (To jog your memory, Trump first took over The White House, same-sex marriage was legalised and La La Land did-then-didn’t win the Oscar.) It’s been a long year.

As you prepare to wrap up a big 2018 by taking some well-earned time off, hitting the road and putting your feet up, there’s some important stuff to know in regards to staying connected as a Telstra customer this holiday season.

If you plan on camping, consider taking a pre-paid mobile broadband modem with you, which will allow you to connect multiple devices and keep the whole family happy. (While the kids play games and watch Netflix, you can stream music and watch sports on the Foxtel Go app!)

If you’re getting off the beaten track and are concerned about mobile device coverage, the Telstra Go mobile repeater is ideal for vehicles, whether they’re cars or caravans. It will help you keep connected wherever you end up!

If you’re hitting busy hubs – beaches, festivals, etc. – make sure you’re using 4G capable devices. It’ll be a far quicker, smoother and more reliable experience.

If you’re taking off overseas (you lucky devil, you), don’t forget to set-up your international travel pass on your mobile phone. This will give you unlimited calls and texts and 200MB of data every day. Best of all, it’s only $10, or $5 if you’re travelling to NZ.

Finally, don’t forget the important bits and bobs that help keep your devices running. Among them: chargers (nothing chews up cash quicker than having to buy a whole bunch of new cables), wireless chargers (even better, as they can charge multiple devices regardless of connections), and rechargeable power banks (excellent as part of your emergency plan).

"This is the time when we all collect more chargers or cables because we leave ours at home, and have to buy more."

- Steve Tinker, Telstra Area General Manager

No one wants a stressful holiday season, so by following these handy hints and tips you’ll be ensuring that the most stress you’ll be under this summer will be in deciding whether it’s a nap or a cocktail you feel like. (We say cocktail.)
