Trustive now welcomes payments in US dollars and British pounds!

Posted by Trustive on July 31, 2009

Today, Trustive launches a multi-currency payment system for all new customers wishing to purchase or top up a Trustive WiFi pass. Trustive, a leading international WiFi access provider and No 1 in Europe, has focussed primarily on its central European customer base until now. However with it’s recent expansion into Asia (the addition of 2,000 China Telecom hotspots, including Beijing Capital and Shanghai Pudong International Airport, was announced only last week) and concrete plans for further, significant coverage expansions in Asia and further afield, over the next few months, Trustive has chosen to reinforce its new position as a leading international WiFi access provider by providing more tailored services to those international customers who need them.

Hence, the development and launch this week of a multi-currency payment system. New customers are invited to select their preferred currency (USD, GBP or EUR) from the drop-down list at the top of Trustive’s “Buy you WiFi pass’ page. The rest of the sign up process remains unchanged, but Trustive hopes that adding little details such as this new multi-currency feature will make their service even more accessible and easy to use.

IAPA teams up with Trustive to bring their members some exclusive deals on international WiFi access!

Posted by Trustive on July 29, 2009

Trustive, a leading international WiFi hotspot access provider and No 1 in Europe, and IAPA (International Airline Passengers Association) have signed a key partnership agreement to enable all 400,000 IAPA members to benefit from Trustive’s global, one-click WiFi access service.

Trustive understands the need to stay connected when travelling and more importantly to use WiFi access wherever possible because it is far cheaper, faster and easier than 3G. Trustive already gives travellers extensive WiFi coverage by combining the WiFi hotspot locations of more than 70 leading WiFi operators into one unified, global network of WiFi hotspots (covering 65+ countries) and allowing Trustive customers access to these locations through a single click (single username and password plus a WiFi client that automates the log in process). Under this new partnership agreement, IAPA members will all now have access to this seamless service using Trustive’s WiFi client software, which is being rebranded specifically for IAPA.

IAPA members will also benefit from exclusive discounts on the standard price of Trustive’s WiFi access passes, making Trustive’s already low-cost service even greater value for money. IAPA members will be able to choose between a variety of WiFi access packages, including both pre-paid and monthly subscriptions which are designed to offer an affordable and flexible WiFi access service for both occasional and frequent travellers alike.

Jonathan French, IAPA’s Head of Brand said: “WiFi has become an essential tool for travellers today and it was therefore only natural for IAPA to partner up with one of the world’s leading WiFi internet access providers in order to guarantee a reliable and affordable, international WiFi access service for our membership.”

Caroline Berry, Trustive’s Sales & Marketing Director commented that “Trustive prides itself on delivering high-speed but low-cost WiFi access in 65+ countries around the world and with the special discounted rates that have been negotiated exclusively for IAPA members, we are sure that many IAPA members will be reaping the benefits of this seamless and affordable service in the very near future”

Trustive partners with SpotCoffee in order to expand its network of premium hotels

Posted by Trustive on July 23, 2009

With the advent of the busy summer season, Trustive, a leading international WiFi access provider and No 1 in Europe, is looking to expand the number of premium hotels that already make up a significant proportion of its WiFi network coverage. To achieve this, Trustive has partnered with SpotCoffee in order to be able to offer hoteliers a professional WiFi solution on a global scale.

The provision of WiFi by a hotel is becoming a key differentiator for travellers and the provision of a stable, reliable and high-speed WiFi connection is therefore vital if hotels are to attract valuable repeat business. This, along with the need for customers to be able to roam seamlessly wherever they go, has led to an increased need for hoteliers to work with fully registered, WiFi service providers such as Trustive and its partners.

Trustive, who is already partnered with 70+ companies around the world, has now partnered with SpotCoffee in order to be able to provide a seamlessly integrated, pre-packaged WiFi solution specifically for hoteliers. SpotCoffee are able to provide the technological infrastructure for the set-up of reliable, high-speed WiFi hotspots using their popular QuickSpot package and Trustive is drawing on its years of experience as an international WiFi hotspot aggregator in order to offer hoteliers a centralised authentication, authorisation and accounting system and rigorous service monitoring tools.

More importantly, Trustive is able to offer hoteliers crucial exposure to a vast community of regular travellers and WiFi users through its online WiFi hotspot directory. Trustive already manages a unified network of 90,000 WiFi hotspots in 65+ countries and their hotel coverage, which currently numbers 8,000 locations worldwide, includes many exclusive, independent hotels as well as internationally renowned hotel chains, such as: Radisson SAS, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts as well as the Four Seasons by Sheraton, Crowne Plaza, Hyatt, Travelodge, Campanile, Mercure and Ibis, Swallow Hotels, Holiday Inn and Valk among many others. Hoteliers will therefore be in good company when they are automatically included in Trustive’s online WiFi hotspot directory. Easy to search through by city, country and/or location type and with user-friendly display and printing options for those all important search results, Trustive’s WiFi hotspot directory is a firm favourite among Trustive’s community of regular travellers and therefore a priceless asset for hoteliers.
