After the success partnership launch last year of Globe Telecom and the Tourism Promotions Board, as each balikbayan, local and foreign tourist travelers get the Globe Traveler sim for free, connectivity and full experience amazes the users with the powerful connect throughout the Philippines.

Globe will once again offer its Globe Traveler SIM to millions of tourists and returning OFWs for FREE for affordable and worry-free connectivity during their stay in the Country. Globe is TPB’s first Philippine Telco partner to offer affordable communication services to millions of foreign tourists and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) returning to the country, with the Globe Traveler SIM that offers affordable local rates for mobile data, calls, and SMS services.
Aside from supporting the Visit the Philippines Again 2016 campaign through the traveler SIM, Globe is launching Relive Wonderful Philippines in parallel to the tourism campaign. Relive Wonderful Philippines is a video contest where international visitors (Non-Philippine residents and OFWs) can submit a video showcasing why they love the Philippines and what they want to do in the Country again. The winner of the best video will win a ticket to fly back to the Philippines with a companion to their destination of choice with hotel accomodation and allowance from Globe.
