Bharti Airtel will start offering free data every month for the next 3 months through My Airtel app as part of its new Holiday Surprises offer
NEW DELHI: Bharti Airtel has begun offering free data every month for the next 3 months through My Airtel app as part of its new Holiday Surprises offer, the company’s CEO Gopal Vittal said in an email to customers.
Airtel is offering data up to 10 GB for one more month for postpaid users who didn’t get upto 30GB under Airtel surprises before March 31 via My Airtel app. Besides, customers that have already availed the offer will get additional month of free data under this offer.
“We want your holidays to be even better. So we are sending across an Airtel Surprise for you. Now enjoy some free data every month for the next 3 months. That should cover any long vacation you may have planned. All you need to do is claim your surprise on My Airtel app before April 30th. Go on, create and share more memories with your loved ones all summer long!,” Vittal’s mail reads.
Furthermore, India’s leading telco is also offering best international roaming rates to its travelling customers to ensure that they are protected from bill shocks.
“The surprises don’t end here. Here’s the double. If you are planning an international holiday, we have something more for you. We’ve taken major steps to ensure that you’re protected from bill shocks while travelling abroad. We’ve negotiated with global operators, on your behalf, to get you the best international roaming rates and deliver great value to you,” Vittal added.
For instance, if an Airtel customer is traveling to Singapore and hasn’t activated any pack. For this destination, Airtel’s daily pack costs Rs 499, and includes unlimited incoming calls, free data, SMS and calls to India. If daily usage exceeds Rs 499, Airtel will automatically activate the Rs 499 pack at no added cost.
If usage charges are less than Rs 499, a customer will only be charged based on the rates that are applicable.
“This double holiday surprise is our way of saying thank you for being part of the Airtel family. We are always striving to enrich the lives of our customers who have trusted us and believed in us over the years. We are, and will always be, committed to nurturing this special relationship with you,” Vittal added.
For prepaid customers, Bharti Airtel has launched a new plan to counter 4G entrant Reliance Jio’s Dhan Dhana Dhan scheme. The telco is now offering unlimited calls to any operator along with 1GB of data per day for 70 days for Rs 399. The offer is available as a segmented offer through the MyAirtel app.
