For extended travel, du offers 6GB allowance at AED 500 or 15GB for AED 1000.
"At du, we provide our customers the very best experiences across the UAE and internationally through our services," said Fahad Al Hassawi, Deputy CEO, Telco Solutions, EITC.

Our goal is to continue adding life to life for our customers wherever they are, at home or abroad. We wanted to offer a solution that is innovative, flexible and great value, so our customers relax and enjoy effortlessly."
Postpaid customers can SMS "data" to 5102 to view the available roaming data bundles. du recommends downloading the du app to your mobile device, then choosing your destination and the data bundle you desire will appear. The app conveniently allows you to monitor usage and "plan ahead for that last YouTube video before boarding your return flight."
Prepaid customers have roaming already active on their lines by default and have a quick recharge feature via www.du.ae/QR, where they can recharge with their credit cards without logging into their accounts. Activating data roaming is simple, just dial *135*20# for free and follow the instructions on the menu. No need to wait in queues, purchase local SIM cards, or depending on Wi-Fi passwords to stay connected.
