Ecoteer has been working hard to give our members great deals on products volunteers need most when volunteering abroad.
Keeping in contact with your family is very important when volunteering for your safety abroad. However calling from your mobile is usually very expensive and often you are charged for incoming calls as well which means a huge phone bill when you get back home. This is why Ecoteer has partnered with Go-Sim a world renowned international sim-card company.
With GO-SIM, you can save up to 85% when calling from overseas in 175 countries. That's up to six times more chat than using your usual service while travelling. You also get FREE incoming calls in over 75 countries, and as your global SIM card is a pay as you go, there's no monthly bill and great call rates are guaranteed.
