How Business Roaming Works

With no-fuss pricing, 2degrees Business Roaming helps you travel for work and keep business as usual while overseas. 

There’s no more buying local SIMs, logging into your self-care portal or contacting your account manager while you’re awayand, although you may see the local telco's name on your phone instead of 2degrees, your phone number won’t change. Colleagues and family in New Zealand can use your regular number to contact you just about anywhere you are in the world.  

Activate Business Roaming

  1. When you arrive in your overseas destination and turn off flight mode on your phone and connect to a cellular network, you’ll receive a welcome text from us that will indicate whether you can access 2degrees roaming services.* 
  2. For most destinations, you don’t need to do anything else, but for destinations where you need to purchase a data Add-on, follow the instructions in the welcome text to enable data roaming.
  3. Start roaming!

*  Tablet or iPad users will not receive a welcome text. In Daily Business Roaming destinations, roaming services will be activated upon turning off flight mode on your device. In Business Roaming Add-On destinations, you will need to insert the device’s SIM card into a mobile phone and text Y to 237 to purchase the data Add-on.

Using Business Roaming

When you travel overseas and use your device, you’ll be charged business roaming rates based on which destination you’re in – see below for more info and please note that cruise-ship or in-flight roaming incur different charges.

Overseas use of voicemail will incur extra costs or trigger a daily charge (as applicable). To help you avoid unwanted costs, we'll automatically turn off your Voicemail when you head overseas. If you want to use Voicemail while overseas, please arrange this before your departure.  

When you land back in New Zealand, we'll automatically detect that you're home, and you'll return to your regular plan use.

$0 Daily Business Roaming Destinations

$0 Daily Business Roaming is exactly what it sounds like: you pay nothing extra to use your plan. Zero!.Zilch! Nada!   

In Australia you can use your NZ business plan allocations (minutes, texts, data) at no extra cost beyond your normal plan charges. This means you can make and receive calls, send texts, and use data like you would when you're in New Zealand. 

Add-ons, International Chat Pack, special rates, promotions and deals are not included and may incur additional charges. 

Excludes calls or texts to satellite or premium rate numbers (Australian external territories such as Norfolk Island are also excluded). International calling and text rates apply for non-local Aussie/NZ use. 

If you run out of your NZ business plan allocations while in Aussie, you can buy a NZ Add-on. For example, if you’re running low on data while roaming, you could buy a 1GB NZ Data Pack to top up and continue roaming. 

$0 Daily Business Roaming may be used for up to 90 days over the course of a calendar year. If you roam in Aussie for more than 90 days in a calendar year, you’ll then use $7 Daily Business Roaming 

$7 Daily Business Roaming Destinations

For an extra $7 per day you can use your NZ business plan allocations (minutes, texts, data) in the overseas destinations listed below. This means you can make and receive calls, send texts, and use data like you would when you're in New Zealand. 

If you keep your phone on Flight Mode and make use of wifi, you won't pay a thing. However, you should be aware that any network use (calls, texts or data) will trigger the $7 charge, so for example if you take your phone off Flight Mode and you've set your phone to automatically check for new emails or updates on social media, this will activate roaming charges. Note that receiving a call will activate roaming charges, but receiving text messages is free. 

Excludes calls or texts to premium rate or satellite numbers. 

Add-ons, International Chat Pack, special rates, promotions and deals are not included and may incur additional charges on use overseas. 

International calling and text rates apply for use other than local, NZ or Aussie use. 

If you run out of your NZ business plan allocations while overseas, you can buy a NZ Add-on. For example, if you’re running low on data while roaming, you could buy a 1GB NZ Data Pack to top up and continue roaming.
