The easiest way to spot a group of Singaporeans overseas is to watch them whip out their smartphones at the first cafe they sit down in and check for free wifi.
The internet is now an integral part of the travel experience. We book our air tickets and accommodation online, navigate using Google Maps, search for recommendations on Tripadvisor and get Uber drivers to ferry us around.
What’s more, without Internet access, we have no way to share pictures of our travels, update our loved ones back home of our whereabouts or reluctantly respond to work-related emails.
Stay connected to the internet when you travel with GOMO
Thanks to the GOMO Travel SIM, you’ll never again have to fumble with cumbersome wifi log-in pages or hunt down telco shops that won’t rip you off. In case you’re wondering, GOMO stands for Get Out More Often.
Once you step off the plane, instantly connect to the Internet using your GOMO Travel SIM, and stay connected throughout your trip. No more desperately trying to find a place to buy a local SIM card with travel data or worrying about paying exorbitant roaming charges.
Using your GOMO Travel SIM is as easy as completing a simple 1-minute DIY activation process and popping it into your phone. There is no need to go through a lengthy sign-up process days in advance. You can buy your GOMO Travel SIM at Changi Airport minutes before your departure, or even months in advance! Anyone can use a GOMO Travel SIM regardless of their telco.
How much does it cost?
For just $20, GOMO Travel SIM gets you 3GB of data for a period of 10 days, perfect for trips around the region.

Plus, the GOMO Travel SIM is powered by Singtel and taps on their partner telco networks (and often the most reliable ones) in each country so you can ensure a smooth connection while travelling.
