Etisalat has announced that it has reduced its GCC roaming tariffs to as low as AED1. This means that Etisalat customers will now effectively pay 26% less on outgoing calls when travelling to Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar or Saudi Arabia.

Matthew Willsher, chief marketing officer, Etisalat said: “Etisalat is committed to offering customers best-in-value mobile services, whether they’re in the country or traveling abroad. Our customers have been benefitting from reduced roaming prices since 2010 when we introduced up to 48% discount on GCC roaming rates. These further tariff reductions spell huge benefits for holidaymakers and business visitors from the UAE to any GCC country.”

If an Etisalat customer makes a outgoing call when roaming within the GCC, the charge will now be only AED 2.4, down from AED 3(postpaid) and AED 3.25 (prepaid) earlier. Furthermore all outgoing calls within the visiting country will now be charged at AED 1 instead of the previous AED 1.3 per minute.

Subscribers do not have to subscribe for the new roaming rates, this feature is activated by default when a customer travels to any GCC country and uses a partner network.
