Italy is my favourite part of Europe. I found all top brands on HolidayRewardz offering holidays to Italy. And they offered me a free SIM Card just to inquire via their platform. So, its a win win situation - both for the travel company and for the customer, isn't it ?

We booked a package to Italy via Thomas Cook and luckily submitted our inquiry via HolidayRewardz. So, while TC gave us an awesome holiday deal, HolidayRewardz topped it up with a free European SIM Card just to route the inquiry through them. I simply 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
