Reviews from our Delighted Customers
I like the fact that you have all the top Holiday Brands listed on your site. Makes it so easy to pick and choose. And the SIM Card was a pleasant surprise. You save so much money in a place like Europe, thanks to this incredible offer
Dipali Apte, Mumbai
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 :-)
Mili Dutta, Kolkata
I loved the SIM Card Experience. It worked across Europe and the data speed was awesome. I am so glad I used HolidayRewardz in the booking process. I'd recommend it to all my friends & family. You add a lot of value to the holiday booking process
Shruti Saran, Bangalore
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.
