Australian-listed telecommunications services company Norwood Systems has launched World Phone Packages designed specifically for the needs of members and customers of RAC Travel.
The launch of two World Phone packages follows Norwoood’s announcement in July of the signing of a distribution agreement with RAC Travel, a Western Australian leading travel agent and a subsidiary of The Royal Automobile Club of WA.
Norwood (ASX:NOR) says the newly launched two World Phone packages include aimed at travellers taking a short break overseas, the other for those who will be away for longer. Each pack includes four components:
- The ‘award-winning’ World Phone app – available for Android or iPhone;
- A bundle of pre-paid minutes to make and receive calls around the world;
- A travel number to let friends and family stay in touch with the traveller without incurring international call charges; and
- Free access to the World Phone voicemail service.
Norwood says the packages will be available for purchase via a dedicated landing page located at worldphone.io/rac and the package price to RAC members and RAC Travel customers will be either $25 (incl GST, standard price $30) for 500 minutes of inbound and outbound international calling or $50 (incl GST, standard price $60) for 1000 minutes of inbound and outbound international calling.
Norwood also says the international calling minutes within the package are scoped to a broad set of destinations, covering 154 landline and mobile networks, with certain higher priced destinations excluded. The main countries that Aussies travel to are included – the United States, United Kingdom, Indonesia (Bali), Thailand, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, France, Vietnam, Singapore and Canada.
Under the partnership, RAC Travel will be responsible for promoting the World Phone packages to their members and customers across a variety of channels, including the RAC website, direct marketing, in store materials and face-to-face discussion with travel consultants at its seven locations across Western Australia.
