I'm helping out a fellow Ingress team mate whose an international tourist. He comes into Melbourne Tullamarine Airport on the Tuesday 4th of February travelling to a local AirBnB. He's travelling on the east coast of Australia and staying in national park out near Mackay so needs Telstra coverage.
What's the best way to get a local Australian SIM, specifically $30 Pre-Paid SIM Kit with 20GB from Telstra for $15or $40 Prepaid SIM-Only Mobile Phone Plan with 45GB - Boost Mobile for $20to him when he arrives as soon as possible, in the cheapest, most convenient way?
One solution I note there's an Australia Post free locker service at Melbourne Airport - australia free post locker mrkvourne airport - Google Search. The collection window though is only 48 hours but 24 hours availability. I've asked this question there but thought I'd ask here as well.
- Will any Australian telecommunication company, specifically Telstra or Boost, deliver to free Australia Post Locker Parcel?
- Will 48 hours collection window be enough? I guess that's what travel insurance delay is for?
- Is it easy for an international tourist to find this locker? He types good English?
- Can an international tourist or non Australian resident use free locker parcels?
