Followinga survey from Post Office Travel Money which identified that hefty charges forusing mobile phones abroad topped the list of “holiday rip-offs”, HulloMail is offering holidaymakers a way to avoid such charges whenjetting abroad for a break.  By downloadingHulloMail’s free smart voicemail app in advance, it enables travellers to keepin contact with friends and family back home, at no cost. 
Beforeleaving the UK, users of HulloMail provide their contacts with a personalHulloMail UK number, which allows voice messages to be left without the needfor calling them directly. Holidaymakers can then listen to messages using theHulloMail mobile app whilst roaming in a free WiFi location and can easilyreply using a ‘Hullo’, which is a short voice message.  If friends and family are alsoHulloMail users they can also send Hullos directly to each other’s devices. 
Whenjetting off on holiday, you want peace of mind that you can make contact withfriends and relatives back home, without racking up a huge phone bill.  HulloMail therefore recommends that beforeembarking on a break, holidaymakers download the free HulloMail smart voicemail andvoice messaging app so messages can be sent and received, without incurring anycharges. By accessing messages using a free WiFi spot either via the app or via your email, you can avoidunnecessary costs yet still update everyone back home on what a great time youare having by the pool!
Have a good summer everyone.

Travellingfans can then listen to messages using the HulloMail mobile app whilst roamingin a free WiFi location and can quickly and easily reply using a ‘Hullo’, whichis a short, instant voice message.
TheConsumer Focus watchdog found that rates for making calls from South Africawere as high as £1.70 per minute, whilst the worst culprit was for receiving calls,charging £1.50 per minute.
Andy Munarriz, our founder and CEO,said: “It wouldbe a real own goal to return from the World Cup to find a hefty mobile phonebill waiting for you.
