Cheap foreign calls for Sri Lankan tourists without roaming charges

Two leading mobile service providers in Sri Lanka, Dialog and Mobitel, provide special packages for the tourists. While you enjoy your journey in Sri Lanka you can keep in touch with your relations (foreign calls) and the people live in Sri Lanka (domestic calls), without paying expensive international roaming charges.  For example you can keep the connection with your guides, hotels etc. This special connection allows foreigners to experience all the facilities and low rates, offered to local users.




The most powerful and the widest coverage owned by the Dialog Axiata. With the dialog you can experience very fast GPRS connection all over the country.

You can buy this special connection after arriving at Bandaranayake International (Colombo) Airport in Sri Lanka. Both postpaid and prepaid connections are available. But we recommend the best choice is the prepaid. Because for the postpaid they ask for a deposit and if you buy the prepaid you can easily recharge it from everywhere.

The Mobitel Telecom also provides this type of offer for the tourist. Normally the Mobitel chargers are slightly lower than the Dialog Axiata. Mobitel got a good coverage as well. They provide all the facilities and GPRS also.

You can get a good idea about the call chargers in Sri Lanka from the table given below. Prices are given in Sri Lankan Rupees.
