Today, travelers from Asia receive a complimentary iFREE SIM card with the first day of data usage when traveling internationally.

A large number of major Asian airlines are now providing these SIM cards upon check-in at the airline ticket counter as a complementary service to their travelers. Veea and iFREE will be partnering with US-based airlines in the coming months to offer the same services to their passengers traveling abroad.

The Veea consumer application, available for iOS and Android devices, serves as a personal concierge for travelers, including those traveling with iFREE SIM card. The Veea app now enables millions of travelers from Asia, with iFREE SIM in their devices, to locate merchants that offer promotions and deals sponsored by iFREE, Veea and their partners, while accepting their preferred method of payment.

Other Veea benefits include the ability to:

  • Connect with friends and family more often
  • View crowdsourced updates on venues and businesses in real-time
  • Gather information about the most followed venues through user-generated collections
  • Generate their own collection of favorite places based on their experiences
  • Book reservations or get on virtual waitlists at restaurants

“We are always looking for opportunities to bolster our services with new offerings that will significantly enhance the travel experience for our SIM card users traveling throughout the world,” said Steven Loke, Group Chairman of iFREE. “By extending our partnership with Veea, we now offer the most affordable set of solutions for international travelers and have provided them with a resource for finding merchants that ultimately offer the best value to travelers.”

“With the pace of international travel from Asia growing exponentially, our goal is to enable merchants and service providers around the globe, who are most inclined to cater to the needs of these travelers, to connect with them through VeeaConnect merchant app and offer them great value,” said Allen Salmasi, CEO of Veea. “This partnership with iFREE provides travelers with a one-stop solution for all their needs, from connectivity to discovering places and exclusive promotions to simplified payments.”

Veea will be offering the iFREE MOGO S SIM cards at Veea booth # 8329 in the Lakeside Center at the 2018 National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show at McCormick Place in Chicago from May 19-22 to international travelers as a complementary gift when visiting their booth.
