Redstone Telecom has been selected to provide the Totally London phonecard to Visit London, the official tourist organisation for London. Redstone Telecom, a platinum partner of Visit London, will provide the telecoms service behind the ‘Totally London’ branded phonecard. The product will be made available for pre-travel order from visitlondon.com and select London tourist destinations.
“Redstone Telecom is already a key player in the travel marketplace where it currently holds a large percentage of the phonecard sector, supplying phonecards to some of the leading high street travel companies in the UK,” said John Read, Head of Prepaid Services at Redstone Telecom. “This latest partnership presents an exciting new opportunity for Redstone Telecom to develop the profile of its product aimed at visitors to the UK,” he added.
This partnership follows Ofcom’s recent announcement, in which it made public its disapproval of high mobile roaming rates and advised British travellers to consider alternative methods for keeping in touch while abroad. This has resulted in revitalised interest in the phonecard market, with Visit London and Redstone Telecom well positioned to benefit.
James Bidwell, CEO, Visit London said; “The Totally London phonecard will provide visitors with value for money and a reliable phonecard service. Redstone Telecom is taking up an excellent marketing and commercial opportunity by becoming a platinum partner of Visit London. We look forward to the launch of both the product and the online services.”
