Seasonal Traveller - Local '04' Number for Australia / NZ Travel

  • Seasonal Traveller - Local '04' Number for Australia / NZ Travel

Operating in remote areas can cause concern for families due to the limited and costly communication options available. Calls to satellite phones can be expensive, with costs between $5 to $15 per minute to the caller.

As a solution, TR Telecom is now offering a new ‘local number option’ feature that eliminates heavy usage costs by allowing you to calls satellite phones at standard mobile rates. 

We can also help those who have experienced trouble calling from corporate telephone networks to satellite numbers starting with 8816 or 8707. Most corporate PBX systems prevent metro based staff from contacting international (satellite) numbers, however TR Telecom’s Standard Australian Mobile Numbers allow you to make contact as you would with a local call.

Enjoy the simplicity of domestic dialing  without having to remember any call sequences or country codes, contact TR Telecom today for the perfect phone and plan to suit your needs.

Does this plan suit you? You are going away for a few months on a trip visiting remote areas around Australia or New Zealand and need reliable communication. Your satellite phone is used for peace of mind should the need arise for an emergency call and also to allow for family and friends to contact you or you, them. If so, then the Seasonal Traveller call plan, utilising the Iridium network, is suitable for you.
