Global roaming SIM provider WorldSIM has two awards at the Business Travel Show Innovation Awards.
WorldSIM won the category of Best Traveller Services Provider as well as the Gold Award for Innovation.
WorldSIM’s global SIM allows travellers to receive calls free on their mobile phones when they travel and make outbound calls at a
lower cost than that of traditional mobile networks.
WorldSIM business development manager Malika Jaffer said: “The fact that a telecommunications company has won this year in an arena traditionally dominated by the big travel companies highlights two very important aspects especially in the current economic environment.
“First, travellers are more and more concerned with all aspects of their travel and keeping in touch cost effectively is becoming increasingly important. WorldSIM can save travellers up to 95 per cent on their mobile bills.
“Second, travel agents and travel suppliers are looking to diversify their offerings to their clients and are actively looking for new sources of revenue. WorldSIM offers agents a way to save their clients money and for them to earn life-long commissions.”
The Business Travel Show Innovation Awards aim to recognise business travel suppliers who have created highly innovative products, services and processes for buyers, travellers or other suppliers in the past 12 months. The awards were presented on February 12 at the Business Travel Show held at Earls Court, London.
