We booked our holiday to Europe through SOTC but made the inquiry via HolidayRewardz, as they offered us a free SIM Card just for making the inquiry. The deal with SOTC did not change. But routing the inquiry via them got us a freebie, which is cool

I was in Germany for an official visit and decided to take my family along so we could have a mini vacation. I found variety of options on HolidayRewardz from leading brands and they also offered a free SIM Card for use. My wife used the SIM extensively and she loved it !

I have to admit, the free SIM Card was the deal clincher. I would have gone directly to Thomas Cook to book the European holiday but I simply had to pick up the free SIM Card. So I inquired via HolidayRewardz and booked via Thomas Cook. Two birds with one stone :-)

We booked via a local franchisee of MMT in Rajkot, but chose to submit the inquiry via Holidayrewardz because they were offering a free SIM Card. It is a really valuable goodie when you are traveling in Europe which has expensive data. We found it a good deal, so did my friends.

Choosing the best package for Europe is never easy. HolidayRewardz made it easy with all the top brands available in a single place. And the offer of a free SIM Card was so enticing, that I inquired from there and booked from Thomas Cook. The SIM Card worked really well too
