Call and surf abroad almost for free with MobiTrotter’s new app
It is now possible to travel abroad without any risk of receiving shockingly high mobile bills after the trip. MobiTrotter is a mobile app which enables you to call and surf abroad at the same rates as the locals. First out to offer MobiTrotter as an ancillary service is the Scandinavian tour operator Apollo, part of the Kuoni group.
The Swedish mobile app MobiTrotter caters to travelers who are tired of over-priced mobile telephony. By using MobiTrotter the cost for international calls are reduced significantly, both abroad and at home. With the app you can make- and receive calls with full coverage in the country you are visiting. The app also enables mobile surf abroad at low local prices. The price reduction is substantial and the rates are much lower compared to traditional operators, especially outside the EU. For several of the major travel destinations you can save as much as up to between 90-95%.
MobiTrotter is the only communications app designed especially for travelers. A major advantage of MobiTrotter is that you are reachable at your usual number, with GSM quality, at a fraction of traditional operator’s prices. The app is available to download for free via AppStore and Google Play.
”We believe the market is mature and that our service will be a natural complement for many travelers. The smartphone penetration is high enough and the smartphone owners are familiar with the usage of apps.” says Peter Bjurström, one of the two founders.
Recently MobiTrotter opened up an opportunity for investors to co-invest in the company together with the crowdfunding company FundedByMe and the Finnish investment company Frontier to raise capital for further development and international expantion. Invitation to the co-investment opportunity
”Crowdfunding is a simple and very efficient way to raise capital and we think it’s great that MobiTrotter chose us,” says Daniel Daboczy, CEO and co-founder of FundedByMe.
