    I thought the microchips are for implanting into the kids so they won't get lost in transit.

    Just had a look at their website and seems that this is best for travelers that are in multiple countries (outside of Europe) for at most 2 days. Otherwise the data rates are very expensive ($130 USD for 7GB data) and local sim cards are almost always going to be cheaper.

    •  

      Of course, the $10 starter pack (free + Postage) for the 1gb could be value if you're a low data user.

    •  

      For most people though the rates are still cheaper than the default global roaming charges of the (Optus/Telstra/Vodafone).
      Absolutely, getting a local Sim card is still the cheapest option however you lose the ability to use your (Australian) mobile number and for some people that is a hassle as you have to let everyone else know your 'new local number' just to use Whatsapp/Viber.

      The introductory offer is still good for those who are only using it for essential internet usage (obviously not for those who need to stream video) as it gets expensive fast.

      The mobile app has various (individual) data plans which you can pre-purchase in advance to get a discount and bigger GB.

        WhatsApp keeps on working even if you change sims, all your existing contracts won't even know you are travelling
