OTA Kiwi.com and Skyroam, a global mobile WiFi company, announced a new partnership this week.
Skyroam offers travellers access to its proprietary network of over 200 local carriers through its patented virtualSIM technology and mobile hotspots – so they only need one device, one network, and 0 SIM cards to stay connected to 4G LTE WiFi at flat rates in over 130 countries.
As a first step in this partnership, travellers who book flights on Kiwi.com will receive an email about the Skyroam Solis 4G LTE mobile hotspot and the Skyroam network.
“Going beyond the booking stage”
Oliver Dlouhý, Kiwi.com CEO and co-founder, said: “Simplifying and improving the travel experience for our customers means going beyond the booking stage.
“It means being their valuable travel partner, providing them with new technologies that will make their entire journey better – and we fundamentally believe that having access to reliable, fast, affordable WiFi in over 130+ countries with Skyroam is something every Kiwi.com traveller will benefit from.”
Customer communications will inform travellers about global mobile WiFi and provide a link to a Skyroam.com landing page where business travellers and globetrotters alike will be able to purchase a Skyroam Solis 4G LTE hotspot. And as a special deal to celebrate the partnership, every Kiwi.com traveller will receive a travel case free of charge.
“Creative ways of teaming up”
Skyroam founder and CEO Jing Liu added: “As customer demands in the travel industry develop and change, startups and established players alike have got to look for creative ways of teaming up to provide the best product or service they can.
“Because Skyroam is focused on taking the stress out of travelling for both business travellers and enthusiastic voyagers, we thought a partnership with Kiwi.com would be perfect. We look forward to working with Kiwi.com into the future and capitalising on the many opportunities we have to bring more value to all travellers.”
