The “Full Access Europe” service is a highly competitive new service, enabling travellers in Europe to save up to 85% on roaming costs.

The “Full Access Europe” pass is the result of close cooperation between TravelSim, Guglielmo and Trustive, three of Europe’s leading operators. Now available exclusively via Trustive’s website (www.trustive.com), the “Full Access Europe” pass is a fully prepaid service with a clear pricing plan, which also offers travellers savings of up to 85% on their roaming costs.

The “Full Access Europe” pass is a prepaid package that includes free incoming calls & free incoming SMSs from 135 countries and free incoming calls for Skype users. In Europe, outgoing calls cost just 19 euro cents per minute & outgoing SMS’s 8 euro cents and 3G data costs 39 euro cents per MB. In addition, secured, free & unlimited WiFi will be provided at 10,000 premium hotspots in Europe, which will be easy to find with the Easy2Roam app’s embedded locator.

Combining a SIM card with a free application, Easy2Roam (for Android smartphones), the “Full Access Europe” pass is both easy and secure because it’s the data stored on the SIM card that is used to provide automatic user authentication to both cellular and WiFi networks. There is, therefore, no need to enter any password or perform any kind of manual sign up procedure.

At the moment, travellers are advised to “switch off data roaming” as they travel in order to avoid prohibitive bills from their domestic operator upon their return. It is up to the individual traveller to find WiFi hotspots, which is not always easy or convenient with local portal venues in different languages and having to provide credit card details each time. Alternatively, travellers can opt for the challenging task of sourcing local SIM cards for each country they visit so that they can continue to use their smartphones on the road; this option is also time consuming or impossible in many countries. 

“At Trustive, we’ve been trying to address this issue for a number of years now. We prefer “prepaid” solutions that provide online balance information in real-time, so that travellers can avoid the bad surprises associated with subscription models. Trustive has aggregated 80+ premium WiFi operators into one unified and secured network. With the new “Full Access Europe” pass, we aim to offer truly transparent and automatic access to both cellular and WiFi networks for anyone travelling in Europe using a “SIM unlocked” or dual SIM Android smartphone. We believe that our pricing model is also pointing the way for savings and simplification” said Christian VanGhelder, managing director of Trustive.

“Full Access Europe” – one SIM card and one prepaid account for Android smartphones – is all travellers now need to stay in touch with business colleagues, friends and family and to save money. For more information, please visit www.trustive.com
