Ryanair & Maxroam slash roaming costs by up to 70%

Ryanair, the world's favourite airline, announced today (30th Aug) that it will slash mobile phone roaming charges by up to 70% as it launched a new partnership with Maxroam, the low cost roaming SIM card provider.

Ryanair's 73 million passengers can significantly cut the cost of making and receiving calls, text/SMS messages or mobile data by buying a Maxroam SIM card. This card will provide one fixed rate across 43 European countries and deliver low prices of just 9c per minute to receive calls, 39c to make calls, free incoming text/SMS messages and 12c to send standard text/SMS messages.

Ryanair passengers can buy a ‘roaming bundle' which includes a phone, SIM card and €10 call credit for just €29 onRyanair.com. Maxroam SIM cards can be used anywhere in the world (in a standard GSM mobile phone) while iPad and iPhone SIM cards are also available to allow all passengers to save even more with Ryanair.

Ryanair's Sinead Finn said:

"Only Ryanair delivers Europe's lowest fares and number one customer service and passengers can now continue to save every time they use their mobile phone abroad. Ryanair and Maxroam have combined to slash up to 70% off mobile roaming charges to ensure passengers can keep in touch with the office, gloat about lounging on a sun drenched beach, or to ask mum and dad to send more money for partying, without breaking the bank."

Maxroam Sales Director, Kieran Sexton, said:

"We are delighted to announce this agreement to offer Maxroam on Ryanair.com. It is the ideal platform for Maxroam to provide visitors with a high-quality, low cost roaming service when travelling abroad and to avoid a nasty bill shock when they return home."
