Airtel offers its customers several international roaming (IR) plans. The telecom also provides additional services on such online recharges. While there are new international roaming packs available, you can also monitor the consumption of your packs in real-time using the Airtel Thanks App. With the help of these functionalities, you can easily access the internet whenever you travel.
Airtel IR’s new features
Real-time usage tracking: This new feature allows postpaid and prepaid users to monitor their international roaming pack usage in real time via the Airtel Thanks app.
No unauthorised data consumption: Data services would be disabled once you have used up all of the IR pack’s benefits to prevent unwanted charges from excessive usage. Through the app, you can quickly take another pack or a top-up.
Enable or disable IR service: With the Airtel Thanks app, you can enable or disable IR service to have complete control over your spending.
Pre-book IR packs and use them later: You can book IR packs in advance and use them whenever required. Airtel Prepaid users can do this up to 30 days before their departure date. Only after they connect to an international mobile network the validity of the pack will commence. Moreover, postpaid users already have access to this feature.
