Qtel’s incredible Summer Roaming promotion means that customers can enjoy even better value when they travel abroad for their holidays or annual leave this year.

The Summer Roaming promotion will provide incredible value for Shahry Value Pack customers and Hala customers, so that everyone can enjoy great value this summer. Customers will be able to get additional incoming roaming minutes to be able to talk more wherever they are in the world.

Shahry Value Pack customers will be able to use the local minutes within their packs for local calls and for incoming roaming minutes for no additional cost during the promotion. The bonus minutes can be used for both voice and video calls while roaming, so that people can stay in touch from the beach, barbecue or shopping destination of choice.

With the Shahry 60 Value Pack plan, customers get 100 local minutes every month, and during the promotion these customers can use all 100 minutes to receive calls overseas at no additional cost, as well as for local calls. Shahry 130 Value Pack customers will have 400 minutes to use either in Qatar or to receive calls while abroad, while Shahry 200 Value Pack customers will get 700 minutes.

Customers using the Shahry 300, Shahry 575 or Shahry 1000 will get bumper packs of 1200, 2500 and 5000 minutes that can be also used to receive calls while roaming, offering incredible value.

Hala customers will also receive an incredible bonus, with all customers topping up with QR100 or more receiving 100 free incoming roaming minutes to use anywhere in the world, on top of their regular credit amount to use for any other services. Every time a customer top-ups with QR100 or more, their 100 free minutes allowance will re-set, providing them with the full 100 again until the end of the promotion.

The offer will run from 1 June – 31 July 2011, and will be provided automatically for Shahry Value Pack customers and for Hala customers those top up with QR 100 or above.

Qtel continues to offer the best roaming rates in Qatar, with a wide range of special services designed to make life easier for people travelling abroad.

One of Qtel’s most popular services for travellers in the GCC is the “SmartRoamer” service, which enables all Shahry customers to call home for just QR2 and call within the country for just QR1 per minute.

Qtel also offers the incredible Shahry Passport, which offers incredible roaming rates in the most-visited European destinations and the USA.
