Globe boosts roaming experience for your digital lifestyle abroad.

These days, probably the first thing that most of us do when we wake up is to go online on our phones to check our social networks for news or new posts from our contacts. Just before leaving the house, we turn to Waze for traffic updates or Grab Taxi for a hassle-free morning ride to the office or to school, while keeping ourselves entertained with our Spotify playlist or reruns from our favorite TV series on HOOQ.

At noontime during lunch break, we would watch our favorite YouTube videos or check Twitter and Instagram to always be in the loop. Towards the end of day, we access our favorite apps like Viber or Facebook Messenger to catch up with our friends for weekend plans, or check out the latest finds from Zalora or Lazada. We have indeed embraced the digital lifestyle where Internet connectivity has become integral to our daily lives.

But what happens when we leave the country for work or vacation? The story of our digitally-connected lives doesn't have to end when we travel abroad. Here's a lowdown on why it's best to be connected with Globe with its Roam Surf data roaming service:

Full 24-hour cycle

With Globe Roam Surf, you get to enjoy full 24-hour data roaming connectivity. Don't fret that your data roaming ends at 11:59pm because the 24-hour cycle starts as your data roaming is activated. Keep connected with your favorite social apps, continue watching the latest videos or stream music from Spotify, book a ride on Uber and navigate your way through the streets of exotic destinations through Google Maps--for 24 hours!

No usage restriction

Avail of Globe Roam Surf and enjoy a complete browsing experience abroad with no limitations, as your digital lifestyle is not just about Facebook and Twitter. Enjoy access to all sites and apps including music and video streaming, as well as file sharing which is an advantage if you're on a work trip abroad so you can share powerpoint files and word documents in a breeze.

No registration

Globe postpaid customers simply need to turn their data roaming on to avail of Roam Surf, no subscription required. You will receive a notification upon first data usage to signify the beginning of the 24-hour duration, as well as a pre-expiry and an expiry notification as a reminder and a call to action whether to continue or stop using Roam Surf. It's that easy.

Automatic roaming partner selection

With Globe, as soon as a postpaid customer lands in his country of destination and turns his phone on, his network signal will be automatically connected to the Globe roaming partner in that country.

Flat rate of P599 per day

For a fixed rate of just P599 per day, Globe Roam Surf gives you 24 hours of unlimited data roaming access. For Globe Prepaid and Load Tipid customers, after being automatically latched on to the preferred roaming partner network, they will need to subscribe to Roam Surf by dialing toll-free *143#. Prepaid and Load Tipid customers can choose from three (3) variants: 1 day (P599), 3 days (P1,797), and 5 days (P2,995).

Free travel insurance

Traveling is exciting yet unpredictable. You don't want your dream vacation or important business trip to be easily ruined by an accident, a lost luggage, a damaged mobile device, a terminated or delayed flight, and other travel inconveniences. Get a free travel insurance coverage with TravelCare when you subscribe to Roam Surf.

"We do not only have the widest roaming coverage worldwide, but we also have roaming promos that offer the best value for money. Enjoy unlimited calls and texts with Roam Unli Call and Text, or discounted voice and text rates with Roam Saver," says Coco Domingo, Vice President for Roaming and International Business at Globe.

"And now with our latest data roaming offering Roam Surf, Globe customers can enjoy 24 hours of unlimited data roaming for only P599 a day. This allows them to live their digital lives the way they're used to even while traveling, all with the peace of mind of not getting bill shock from excessive roaming charges. They 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."
