4.6 / 5

based on 78 reviews

Didn’t understand how to use it at first so I texted the number listed and they helped. Ended up using it is the whole time and it worked smoothly. Much better than grabbing a SIM card for each country I visited.

It was the most amazing experience. The driver and the guide were excellent. I would recommend this activity to anyone visiting Meteora. Definitely worth every cent!

Perfect for when you’re travelling and easy to use. Customer support was helpful and responded quickly.

Easy way to get data. It was a cheaper and easier option than the stores where I was visiting.

Great and easy to use Only problem is to know how much data you have left
