Back to top Remember that for extended trips overseas, $5 a day can still add up pretty quickly, so it may be worth picking up an international prepaid SIM card from the country you visit in order to save your tourist dollars for more important things.
If you'll be jumping from country to country, global SIM cards are also a valid option.
Catch Connect is the most recent provider to jump on the Optus network, and it has jumped into the market swinging value around like a cricket bat.
Its $35 prepaid plan has a 30 day expiry and 20GB of data, which is quite a bit more than many other Optus plans at this price.
Whether you need stacks of data or just want to spend as little as possible, this page is designed to help you find the best mobile phone plan for your needs.
Despite being one of the youngest telcos in the business, Catch Connect has quickly established itself as the home of low-price, high-value mobile plans.
The combination of Galaxy S10, S10 and S10e 8 smartphones means that Samsung has the top end of the market covered especially well.
If you're looking to grab one of these smartphones on a contract, there are plenty of options to choose from.
You can get the 64GB i Phone XS on the Telstra M plan for a 5.33 a month over 36 months, and that comes with 60GB of data, a 12-month subscription to the Telstra AFL, NRL and Netball Live app, access to the Telstra Air Wi-Fi network and unlimited talk and text throughout Australia.
While Apple has taken a definite step up in the quality stakes this year, that doesn't mean that Samsung has slowed down.
