The autumn holidays are just around the corner – an opportunity to soak up some sun before winter sets in. In addition to tickets, passports, clothing and sunscreen, a well-stocked data package is also part of the “stuff” today so you can surf the web on vacation, share photos or find the restaurant you want on the beach on Google Maps. Can you

Problem: Data roaming is not cheap at all. Namkeen often calculates after returning from the dream destination. But these costly fees can be avoided. On the one hand, there are tips that you can keep in mind to save data. For example, use WLAN whenever possible (especially in hotels), especially when watching videos, which “eat up” a lot of data. Or rely on offline street maps (available in the App Store) when researching restaurants on the go.

Individual packages instead of fixed monthly dates

On the other hand, offers like TalkTalk, a subsidiary of MobileZone, can also be used, which are sometimes more enjoyable than cumbersome data-saving tips.

So individually bookable data packages make more sense for most customers. Since the Telecom Act amended in 2021, these should be valid for twelve months. For example, TalkTalk offers packages that can be freely chosen throughout the year. They can be easily booked by SMS before departure. This saves you unnecessary monthly costs and you pay only when you really need it. If the demand on the site is unexpectedly high, additional packages of between 500 MB and 30 GB can be easily purchased using Data Booster.

Smart offers for frequent travelers or cross-border commuters

In addition to packages for two to three trips a year, TalkTalk, which has been active in the Swiss market for over 20 years, also has offers for those who spend more time abroad than the Swiss average. Subscriptions with small to large monthly roaming data volumes are the norm here. These are also useful for anyone who is in the border area with Germany, Austria, France or Italy.

Anyone who is unsure which personalized offer is best for them can consult TalkTalk. This is done through customer service at Rotkreuz ZG by telephone, via WhatsApp chat or online at one of the 124 MobileZone branches in Switzerland.
