It might come as a surprise to you when you get to know that you are spending 82.5% more than the normal rate.

Or, you can answer/make the calls whenever and wherever with Virtual Number as long as you are connected to the Internet.

Getting back is easy 

After your prolonged trip, you can easily pick up from where you left. There are no cancellation charges when you wish to port back to a different telecommunication Provider. Travelers who shuttle between countries for a long duration, benefit the most out of this feature.

This is for all travellers out there.
