  • Thanks - bought!

    • Glad we could help rusty!

      Appreciate the support! :)

    • Aww yeah, glad you had a good experience Vavoom!

      Probably a good thing it didn't work haha, NZ is beautiful!

  • Hi Rep,

    We are going to NZ for 8 days.
    Will this be enough for using Google maps for directions in a rental car. Be mainly Queenstown, Wanaka, and driving to Te Anau/Milford Sound.

    Our hotel has wifi for browsing so mainly need it for driving around.
    First time going to NZ.

    • +1

      Hey Bcraze!

      Sure will! You'll get 4G/3G coverage for all those areas, however you might find some blackspots around Milford Sound (Time to enjoy the beautiful scenery ;) )


    • +3

      Download the map before leaving

    • +1

      If you are worried about data use download the maps on wifi first. The Google Maps app lets you do this

    • Thanks all.

      So I can download like a large area or whole South island for offline use?

      • +3

        You can download a large area, you might need to make 3 or 4 area downloads with a slight overlap as there is a size limit to what you can download.

    • great app.

      I'm heading to NZ in September and going exact same places for about 8 days as well. Haha.

    • Te Anau has reception. As does Queenstown and Wanaka.

      Once you leave Te Anau, there is pretty much one (majestic) road to Milford.

      Just follow the bus loads of tourists and you’ll be there in no time.

  • ANY Europe deals? I will be travelling in 2 months time.

    • +1

      Hey Sabre!

      We'll be doing another Europe deal within the next few weeks - keep your eyes out!

    Have used one of these last Christmas, no problems whatsoever, a great deal and works all over NZ. This will be on my buy list next time I head over to see our dear Kiwis!!.

    With the way airport security has changed, would it be OK bringing the sim opening tool onboard and pulling it out on plane before you land, as suggested.
    I've heard they dont allow small nail scissors, so maybe sim pin is considered a weapon or banned item.

    • Hey Ozzpete,

      I've never heard of someone being pulled up for the SIM tray opener. I've personally taken one through airport security and had no hassles :)


    • Use a paperclip

  • Going to nz end of week, any chance I can pick these up in Sydney?

    • +1

      I don't think I could get it to you before the end of the week sorry!

      You shouldn't have any trouble getting a SIM in NZ, just look for 2degrees store :)

  • +1

    Nice, bought two. Thanks!

    • Cheers!

    Thanks Aidan - bought one for an upcoming NZ trip later this year

    • Thanks theredrabitt :)

      Hope you have a great trip! <3


  • Hi Rep,

    Planning on getting any deals on Spark NZ?
    They have better coverage and I will need it for mobile gaming whilst in NZ…

    • Hi Dasher,

      I can definitely reach out to them and see what they can offer. But setting up new partnerships can take some time…

      I'll keep you updated if we get our hands on some stock.


  • thanks Guys,

    this is awesome i always spend like $50 bucks on a card when i head there and get less than what you have for offer,

    looking forward to seeing how this works when im there in August!

    • +1

      Thanks gas!

      Appreciate your order :)

  • Hi OP,
    Just curious, are you the same Aiden from So Easy Travel? A few fellow ozbargainers didn't have a pleasant experience from this deal last year but I'm sure things have improved by now.

    For those that still have leftover SIM cards from that deal, if we activate it now, do we get 1.25GB or just 1GB?


    • Hey Takamine!

      I am indeed dude, I finished working there around June last year. Sorry to hear you had a bad experience, I hope they got everything sorted out for you.

      Good question, I honestly have no idea. I would assume you'd get 1.25GB, but don't quote me on that.

      Hope that helps.

    Sweet as Bro, just bought 2 as we are back over the ditch in July to look after the Mokapuna for 3 weeks. now that Vodafone have scrapped their free global roaming to NZ and gone back to $5 a day global roaming this is a sweet deal.
    Off to the New Orleans Jazz festival next month so Monday I will be pulling the trigger on your usa deal .
    Choice Eh !!

    • Nice Bro, appreciate your order :)

      Yeah definitely keep an eye out for USA deal on Monday (should post around 5.30pm)

      Glad we could help.


  • Hi OP

    Any news on the US Sim?

    • Hey Kiwipride!

      We'll be doing a US post at 6pm today :)

  • Bummer I'm a bit late to this, I need 2 sims for travel at end of April. Any chance to get some discount still, even if not 45% off?

    • Check pm :)

      • ooh me too.. trawling all your sim posts :)

        headed to NZ next month.

        • Check your pm too :)

  • Holy Crap!

    I still have not received the Sim and we leave on Friday!

    OP, what is happening?

    Anyone else here received theirs?

    • Hi Jason,

      Your NZ SIM is on the way. Spoke to you on live chat/email and replied to your other post.


  • Damn this is pretty annoying. I ordered these on the 26th of March and they still haven't arrived. Leaving for NZ today :(

    • Hi Swineey,

      I'm sorry about that. Can I have your order number so I can chase it up for you and refund your order?

      I must not have seen your departure date.

      You should not have any issues getting this exact same SIM card at the airport when you land as there are 2degrees stores in the arrivals airport. Reach out to me if you have any issues finding the store!


      • Hey, sent a pm. Thanks!
