Voice calls to GCC countries will now cost AED 2.4.


Etisalat today announced they have dropped GCC roaming tariffs by AED 1. The new rates applies to both prepaid and postpaid users, and to all GCC countries, namely, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

“Etisalat is committed to offering customers best-in-value mobile services, whether they’re in the country or traveling abroad. Our customers have been benefitting from reduced roaming prices since 2010 when we introduced up to 48% discount on GCC roaming rates. These further tariff reductions spell huge benefits for holidaymakers and business visitors from the UAE to any GCC country,” said Matthew Willsher, Chief Marketing Officer at Etisalat.

The new tariff rates are a 26% discount from previous rates, where voice calls from any GCC country to another will be charged just AED 2.4, compared to AED 3 (postpaid) and AED 3.25 (prepaid) earlier.

There is no subscription needed; the new rates will be applied automatically.
