Travel sim to connect visitors to their home

TOURIST Transport Fiji (TTF), one of the largest tourist transfer companies in the country, has adopted a new way travellers can stay connected with people in their home country.

The initiative is a free travel SIM that is accompanied with communication features and information necessary for the average tourist in Fiji.

With its more than 100,000 visitors as clients annually, TTF has partnered with Digicel Fiji to introduce the travel SIM for their clients.

TTF general manager John Hardaker said the communication package took the company a year to work on with the mobile company.

"The SIM itself will be part of our meet and greet package which will be offered to our clients, wholesalers and pre-booked clients that come into Fiji," he said.

"That's about 100,000 clients a year.

"It will be activated through our offices and it offers an opportunity to be directly connected to their families."

He said marketing for the new product began in two of the company's major markets.

"We will be marketing this worldwide with all of our major wholesalers starting at two main markets which are Australia and New Zealand.

"The purpose is purely to enhance the value of coming to Fiji.

"When they come here there are limited disruptions to their communications to their families and friends back home."

Digicel Fiji CEO Darren McLean said this initiative was a first of its kind for Fiji.

"This has never been done before in Fiji and it's a great value added to the whole holiday experience for the thousands of tourists that come to Fiji," he said.

"TTF is the leading transfer business in Fiji and has an awesome reputation in the quality of their transport experience. From Digicel Fiji's perspective this is another perspective to enhance the guest and traveller experience even more as they arrive into Fiji."
